View Full Version : Nike Jersey Sizing

12-04-2012, 10:23 AM
I am doing a little online Christmas shopping and was ordering jerseys for the boys. They both wear large tshirts, does anyone know how the Nike sizes run for jerseys?

The old jerseys ran large, but the new Nike style seems like a tighter fit from looking at them.

Should I bump up to a XL or should a L do?

Go to the official Nike site - different types of jerseys have different sizing charts. No idea why they make it so confusing, but it is.

Thus far, they seem to be running a tad smaller than their Reebok counterparts (but have more stretchy stuff).

If it helps; I am an XXL in soccer jerseys, my Reebok #80 jersey is an XL and is a little big; my #56 is XXL and is good for going over hoodies.

My Nike #99 is XL and is slightly smaller than the Reebok XL.

One of the bigger differences is the armpit area; if you shrug your shoulders in the Nike, the whole thing lifts up. Would have been terrible in the 6-10 season!

Just to be clear, there are several different styles and each is sized/fit VERY differently.


The Elites tend to be longer.
