    I've been wearing Adidas tennis clothing for a few years and have always worn a size Large. I recently bought the new Competition Crew and Competition 5 Cover up in size Large and they fit much smaller than I expected - more like a medium. Is anyone at TW aware of a recent change to Adidas sizing?

    Did you perhaps wear clothing from their "Response" line previously? I find there to be a large disparity between the sizes in those two lines, with "Response" clothing running larger and "Competition" clothing running much smaller.

    Actually, I thought the older Competition line was sized way too large and a size L fit more like a XL on me, whereas, the Response line fit more true to size on me. Perhaps with the new Competition line Adidas has corrected this size discrepancy?

    I just bought a Comp 5 shirt, size L, and it does fit a little bit smaller then my other size L Adidas shirts.

    I've worn both the Response and Competition lines and wore size L in both. The new Competition line definitely seems to fit smaller than before. Time to start buying XL I guess...
