The slim-body design of this jersey makes it an awkward item to purchase. If you buy your exact size, make sure you have a PERFECTLY flat stomach - because the jersey hugs your waist very tight. The arms, chest and shoulders are a good fit, and look great. But I have a bit of a gut (and love handles), and it didn't look right. If you buy a size up, the arms are way too long and loose; making it look nothing like the nicely well fitted jersey it's intended to be. The body is area will be okay (depending on how big your gut is? It was a bit too spacious for me) and a bit too long. In short, this is an amazing jersey (great material and quality) that's designed for those guys with a good, athletic physique. It'll look great on them, but not on those of us who are slightly out of shape.
My son has worn this continuously since it's (unexpectedly for him) arrival. Just seems to make him feel better, stronger, taller faster. Looks great, and will no doubt be worn with pride when we get carried away watching the Bledisloe cup together. (Wrong side of the ditch). I love it, too
First off, I'll start this review by saying that I've been a fan of the All Blacks since I started playing high school rugby eight years ago so I had to get my hands on a(nother) jersey! I ordered a size Medium and I tried it on as soon as it arrived at my house only a few days after ordering through express shipping. I'm about 5'9" tall at 185lbs, with chest size 40", waist size 35", and hip size 41". I currently enjoy weightlifting as a sport. I'm not super jacked or anything, but I would say that I'm somewhere between average and athletic in terms of build. In terms of the fit, I would say that it is a lot more comfortable and just a little bit slimmer than the size Medium 2011 jersey (which I also own so I can compare the two). While the 2011 jersey is climacool, the climalite features of this 2016 jersey really make a difference in terms of comfort and material flexibility. I would definitely take my 2011 jersey out to a rugby practice since it's more rugged, but the 2016 jersey isn't meant for that kind of stuff. If you want to get some functionality out of an All Blacks jersey, definitely get the performance variant of this jersey. I would definitely say that you should order this jersey true to size if you're into a garment that's slim-fitting. It'll look good on guys with an athletic build for sure! Overall, I mainly wear this jersey for casual wear. It looks great, fits close to the body, and definitely feels great! Thanks Adidas!
Bought this polo and was great but the fit on other xl size this was loose fit. Also i was wondering before when you bought some stuff and paid for delivery, next order will be free as they send you a code for free delivery. Now i wanted to send it back but when i fet downsize i will be able to pay for shipping cost again. Cost too much money. Anyone knows?
Bought this top for my boyfriend for Xmas and he was really pleased with it. It's a great product and makes any physique look more athletic due to its tight fitting nature. He was really impressed by the quality and finish of the product
This top is a great alternative to wearing the All Blacks jersey as it is nice and light and breathable. I'll wear it to support the team on gametime and also during the gym. The sizing is perfect for my 5'11 80kg frame - i wear a medium and this fits perfect.
The shirt arrived on the exact day promised - very reliable service. The shirt is great but the style of modern rugby shirts is not so flattering to all. A great souvenir of a fantastic world cup though.
Awesome tee, fits well, is light and very breathable with the mesh ventilation. Purchased both the black and the blue and the colours are both really cool. If your after a good gym,running or training don't hesitate in purchasing this tee.
Great material composition and very light weight so much so that it is a great feel and comfortable against the body. The fabric is mostly Adizero, and I don't know whether it is the same as the AB's player version, most often the replica versions of AB Kit is Climalite, rather than Formotion as used in the AB's Jersey which is much more confortable to wear for purist fans out there (but never sold in retail shops) However, this new fabric in the T-Shirt is great. The online pictures don't do the shirt justice as it is a wonderful black contrasted with the heat embossed gun metal logos which captures the light when moving. The mesh inserts on the shirt will be great for those humid summer days in Sydney. Again, kudos for having the sponsor details on the shirt as previous replicas left out these small details to distinguish from the actual players kit worn by McCaw, Read, Carter et al. A size L fits perfectly on a 6ft, 95kg male. All the weekend warriors can feel like an AB on their day off!
