We tried the size Medium in this jacket on Huey and we put an XL jacket on Dewey. These are the sizes they normally wear and both fit great. The jackets are roomy. My primary advice would be to wear the size you normally wear in men’s clothing. If you are between sizes I’d advise you to go down.
The chart provided by Speed and Strength shows chest sizes for each alpha size that are a bit larger than what you’d normally see for “standard” conversions from chest size to alpha size. Based on my observations (above), the chart seems just about right.

Our Two Cents
The Lunatic Fringe Mesh Jersey is basically a MX style jersey with armor included. There is a mesh liner inside the mesh outer frame which has pockets to hold the CE elbow and shoulder protectors and back pad. You’ll be buying this jacket probably because you like the look of a MX style jersey and you like the style, but here’s the thing… this jacket has no front zipper… it’s a pull-over. Pulling on and off a tee or jersey is normally not a big deal, but one with armor pieces installed does become a bit of a challenge. But the question in my mind is WHY? Zippers are a good idea in a jacket, and SO convenient. So to me, this jacket…. errrr jersey design is sort of like buying a car, with doors, and then welding the doors shut… why? Well, I’m probably showing my age here and if you agree, please ignore my sarcasm and just buy this jersey from me anyway. I bet you’ll love it! :) :: Paul, 04-23-14
