The right fit can be easier to find in gear sized by the European standard. There might be three or four different Euro sizes between another brand’s L and XL; the smaller increments translate to a more precise fit. Do your homework here, as certain brands tend to run large or small. While this is not a universal rule, the European brands tend toward the smaller end of any sizing scale, while brands built in the U.S. or specifically marketed for, ah, more robust Americans tend to run a bit larger. Checking for customer feedback on retailer websites can help, but there’s no replacement for actually trying it on.
