kit size confusion

Recommended Posts

here we go again, childrens sizes last year  were   26ys  28ym  30 yl and 32yxl.

why have they changed it like umbro  34 6-7yrs  38 7-8yrs   no 8-9,  940-9-10yrs how do we know what size to get if your kid is 8 and a half yrs old, frustrating. last year he had a youth medium. its not as if the numbers for the sizes represent anything, i''ll just pay £35.00 plus prem badges and name and number on the back in the wrong size shall I

By the looks of it he''s from Gloucestershire. So to travel to the club shop just to get his kid to try on a shirt seems a bit of a hassle- but phoning and asking is probably quite sensible.

Labelling is a misnomer anyway as sizes vary according to manufacturer. You only have to look at our previous tops and the complaints over size L and XL from a number of posters. Depends on the fit (style) as well. You have to either try it on or take a gamble at buying the right size

My advice would be to buy a bigger size than you would have done in last year''s kit. I know a poster on the main new kit thread said he thought the shirt looked the same size as the previous kit when he saw one in the club shop, but I know from experience with Errea that the sizes are less than generous. The fit is more "tailored" and there isn''t much give in the fabric. Italians are generally much slimmer and slighter in build than Brits!
