Hello all,

From last year, but a similar question on this Mavic Espoir jersey. Like the summer weight and the simple looks.

My chest is 98 cm, putting me at the top of the medium, bottom of the large size.

I wear a medium jersey in most (LG, PI, Nalini). But, I have a Castelli jacket and need a large in that. Fits well.

I am 5'8", 145 if that helps. 98 cm chest, 82 cm waist.

I'm leaning towards a large in this Mavic jersey. Like a snug fit, but I don't need skin suit.

Seems like I should go for the Large. Thoughts?

Thanks!!

Thanks for the replies!

Hmm...I'm kind of between the size of you two, now I'm not sure what to get. I was leaning towards the large...

billium you're a bit taller than me but similar measurements.

woods you're a bit smaller than me in some spots, but just about my height.

Ah!!! More confused. Maybe I'll order both sizes and send back the one that doesn't fit.

Either way, I appreciate you taking the time to reply. Thanks, gents!

Alright, so I picked up the jersey in a size L. Fits really well, looks good, loving it.

I've worn it about 5 times, hand washed it. Hung it up last night to dry and realized there are already some small tears in the fabric starting where the pockets meet the jersey. Maybe they won't propagate, maybe they will. It's kind of like the little "cell" of the fabric is expanding.

I know it's a very light summer jersey but...a few wearings and this is happening? Not what I want when I paid that much for it.

Anyone else have this issue?

Already called Mavic and they told me to go to a dealer, get an authorization code, send it back.

I just wonder if I'm overreacting. Maybe the rips will stop? (haven't put anything but a mini tool and a tube in the pockets)
