Good point Ken. I'm also a L size over here, M over there. I was waiting to see what interest there might be in the jerseys before getting into sizes. I think that when figuring the appropriateness of Japanese sizes, one size larger is about correct. Some of the keirin racers are not so tall, but are built like a middle linebacker who can stand up a big back on a hard slant through the middle. (Anyone remember Ray Nietsche of the Pack?) I'm watching the auctions to see what sizes come up.

Joel, thanks for the link showing the jerseys.
