Size Grade Changes in Men's Jerseys/Tops

Size Grade Changes in Men's Jerseys/Tops

Better fit across larger sizes.

In communication with our customers, we have worked diligently to improve the sizing in our men's XL thru 3XL jerseys and tops.
 

Size grading, or pattern grading, is the process of creating a range of sizes for a single garment.

Since the purpose is to properly fit that garment to a range of sizes, the changes only increase or decrease the size of the original pattern.

As such, every measurement point is adjusted according to a strict formula to maintain the same fit and proportion in each size.


Which items were changed?

All 2022 and beyond men's jerseys and tops in size XL thru 3XL (including jackets and vests).
After carefully examining feedback from customers, we determined our size grading for men's jerseys and tops should be slightly adjusted to ensure the garments fit different sizes in the exact same way.


What changed?

The below drawings will help depict the change in grade and how it effects the overall garment through the shoulders, sleeves, chest and waist. Notice how the length is unchanged.
