Great Jacket, Lousy Fit

Great Jacket, Lousy Fit I bought this to wear in between rides, and it is exactly as described as far as comfort, quality and finish. I even wore it on a short hike in low 40s temp here in Colorado and it was warm yet breathed, and I only wore a light base layer rollneck top underneath. The longer back like all Castelli jackets means you could even wear on a bike ride low on the bars and it would be comfortable. I have actually worn it on some rides and it is great for those colder earlier starts. My only and continuing gripe is the size fittings are WAY off. The almost pretentious commentary from the sales staff here and Castelli agents that I have spoken with that, this is "European fit" is complete BS. If the Castelli chart says a large fits 35" waist, why is it that when I Bought the L, and I have a 31-32 waist, I can't zip it closed and the arms are short, chest is tight and overall pincer fit. BTW I am EUROPEAN, fit and in shape from all my riding, so why do I have to buy XL here and the previous Castelli Perfetto jacket 2XL, to fit in the bloody thing?! I get the impression that Castelli has lost all control on its sizing and for inane reasons refuses to acknowledge this, and will not fix this issue. It's one thing to size up occasionally for race fit clothes, but to have to go from what should be medium to 2 XL is idiotic. I really like the materials, designs, colors etc, but if Nalini can sell bike clothing that is much closer to described sizing, why doesn't Castelli? I spend a TON of money on gear, and expect better from businesses that charge a hefty premium. So in this case I bought two jackets, L and XL just in case, and you guessed it, returned the L because it was an impossible fit. Size up 2-3, pretend you are Donald Trump in the size charts and you won't be embarrassed to order XXL, and you won't be disappointed by fit. Nuff said. Submitted on  14 November 2017  by  Aspenrace
