NFL Jersey Sizes?


Quote  |  Reply

I need some help. I'm trying to buy an NFL jersey for my boyfriend, but I can't figure out what size to get! I want to order from eBay because they are much cheaper, so returning/exchanging would be a big hassle.

S - 46

M - 48

L - 50

These numbers mean nothing to me.

He is 5' 10" and weighs about about 145 pounds. His muscles are very toned but he is pretty shrimpy, so I don't want to get one too big. My jersey is a kids XL, so I don't have anything to compare to. Tongue out Thanks!

Oh yeah, and he usually wears a medium or large tshirt.

go with a medium.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking! 

Same stats as my husband and I just recently bought him an NHL jersey got him a M and its fits perfectly.

Agreed, they tend to run big.  Go with a medium.

Big is ok when it comes to a Jersey... the numbers are supposed to be chest measurements but i never go by that... medium should work...

Oh yeah, big is what you want for a jersey, but you don't want him swimming in it :)

Awesome guys. Thank you so much for the suggestions! After all your reassurances, I feel like a Medium would be perfect. :)

Now I just have to find a cheap one! THAT's the hard part.

eBay has some good prices.

Medium would work. You should check out thrift stores or goodwill. Unbelievable how many jerseys are there. I have a whole team of them from those places. Unless you are looking for a specific team/player then I'd say go to a sporting goods store and look for the clearance section or wait on sales (20-40% is the norm for current jerseys) Or outlet malls!

 

I found one on eBay and managed to get it for about $25, including shipping! I got really lucky. It was pre-owned, but since it's for Halloween I don't even care. Boyfriend will never know, and he's only going to wear it once. It was a steal. Maybe I can even re-sell it afterwards. :) Thanks for all the help!

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
