For jerseys i'm about a size 5 in nalini (which is an xl i think, might be xxl) and a large in Gore. How does assos compare size wise? Best going for an XL or an XXL?

btw there seems to be a real lack of stockists for assos in Scotland, and some of the shops that do stock it only have the shorts and chamois cream.

    If it's any help I'm an L in Castelli, Santini and Giordana and I fit an L Assos too.

    As for stockists http://www.cycle-world.co.uk/brands/assos.php

    Great shop. Very knowledgeable staff. Was in there a few weekends ago and they had lots of Assos kit hanging up. They do need to update that website though because they had some jerseys in.

    Depends what Assos Jersey. The Mille is a considerably different fit to, say, the Uno. Tthe new Swiss is tighter than the old Swiss.

    In order of sizing I would say:

    SS.13 is probably the tightest at any given size
    New Style Federation tops and Uno slightly looser (ever so)
    Old style Federation and Uno looser again
    Mille jersey a size down
