Ok, current owners of LG Pirate kit - what's the LG size equivalent of a ladies 10 ?

What would be the equivalent of size 18 for the monaco?

Nursey i'm a 10 and I wear a mens monaco but I actually cant remember what size I own !!
I think it may be a small but for comfort I would opt for a medium personally .. you will also find they come up a bit short (for me anyway) so the extra size will give you a little more length

Cheers Meldy.  Having looked at the sizing chart, I was going to go for medium.

Now I've got a Pirate discount on next years Henley I ought to make sure I've got something Pirate to wear. If it isn't too late can you put me down for a medium cycle top - I'll transfer the money as soon as you want it after tomorrow evening (cos I'm away and really struggling for Internet at the moment).

Ok, I'm battled with the tape measure today, and the tape measure won 

The size guide says women's xl (hands over face) or men's medium, but then the conversion chart from women to men say a men's large ... mmm??? (And I'm a 14 normally ... 12 in tops sometimes ...)

So I think that since the clothes come up small I should order a large for the monaco and the jersey, but is the jacket a little more generously cut, and therefore I might be better off in a medium??? 

Alternatively, has there been swapping around of kit in the past when kit has been too big for some, too small for others?

The monaco doesn't take any prisoners. It is a "performance fit". I have a M mens monaco and it is tight. I *should* have a S monaco (weedy 36" chest).

I'm sure the jacket is a relaxed fit. My M jersey is baggy, and my L jacket is huge. Each item has a certain fit - you can find the fit type on the item's page.

Thanks Cat5, I was trying to work sizes out too. 38" chest, and I'd calculated that S meant Medium for the Monaco.

Brit, don't be embarrassed about your chest. Be proud. Have you seen how embarrassed us blokes are who profess to weedy chests? We're trying to compare ourselves with triangular swimmers.


By an unusual quirk, in an administrative error the HMRC appear to have taken too little this month, so I'm cash positive Now thinking of cycling jackets.

Can I remind peeps that we order men's sizes, not girly wirly
07/10/2012 at 10:03

erm, as I am a size 14 I am thinking I should order a large then? although I am hoping to lose weight, but even then it probably isn't going to be baggy unless I lose a ridiculous amount?

What Blisters said.

Remeber us men don't really know what dress sizes mean in real numbers. You may have to explain. Pictures are worth a thousand words remember .

TBH my monaco is tight around the gut rather than the chest.

Hi guys. I'm new to this forum. I work in the Middle East and there are no Tri clubs near me so I was wondering if I could race as a Pirate? I know the Pirates focus on Ironman distance however I'm hoping to do a 70.3 next year and an Ironman eventually.

You wont be the first pirate in the middle east  

welcome aboard!!

Matchschick ... go for a medium

07/10/2012 at 19:16

thanks meldy, if they are too small I will just have to lose more weight! will be a good incentive

I think I mentioned before somewhere ... if anything its the length in the body that comes up a bit short so I would always opt for the bigger size, that and the arm holes are quite 'baggy' !!

Reckon I'm gonna go for a large Monaco and medium jersey and jacket, since these both have a more relaxed fit. Like you, MC I am hoping to get smaller but so many folk are saying how tight the Monaco fit is and up til now I've only ever worn baggy running vests so perhaps a bit more room might make me feel a little less exposed ...

What do any of the ladies with kit already think of this strategy?
07/10/2012 at 21:44
Since I'm a size 10 , 32 chest and 30 waist do I go for a small Monaco or do I ignore the measurements and go up a size to a medium? ??45 ish is a lot to spend and have it not fit.
07/10/2012 at 22:38
If in doubt go bigger. You'll be screwed if it turns up and it's too small. Surely that's basic logic, isn't it?
08/10/2012 at 05:09
Hi, if its not too late can I place an order for -
1 x Monaco (XL)
1x Cycle top (L)
1 x Tri Short (L)
1 x Cycle Jacket (L)
If you let me know how/who to pay I can do it straight away.
