Jersey sizes, what size fits?

Hi.
Im about to order a Canucks Premier Jersey of the internet and I havent bought myself a hockey jersey before.
When it comes to the sizes Im not sure which size I should choose and Im hoping for some help from you guys

Im 180 cm tall and I weigh about 90 kilo.
Normally I wear Large or XL when it comes to sweaters.

My intention With this jersey is to wear it as I watch games and/ or wear it casualy.
Im never going to wear it outside of pads or any other gear or anything like that.
Only as a fan at home

Thanks in advance for any answers I may recieve, its greatly appriciated as I live in Norway and ordering wrong size really sucks (very expensive customs).

Sorry for mentioning the sizes in Cm, but I really dont know anything about inches or feets so I just played it safe

Depends on your chest/shoulders.

Adult jerseys are enormous.Go try some at a local jersey shop, any one will do on if you are buying NHL jerseys as they are standard size.

Massive difference between the biggest youth size and an adult small if you are asking me. Youth smalls I can wear at 39 inch in the shoulders but are a little short in the arms.I am a 5'6 woman.Adult smalls fit loose on me and hit much lower. I have an adult XL.I don't wear it much. It looks like a robe on me

heh, a concern of mine, to be honest, considering the last time I bought a sweater I weighed close to 220 pounds.

Going to be buying a new sweater in the next month or two and I weigh under 155 lbs. No freaking clue what size I'm going to get as a result.

Thanks for input:)

Im prohibited from trying jerseys on as I live in a country without any measurable understanding / interest for hockey.
You Americans and Canadians may find it hard to believe, but it's actually just one physical hockey store in the entire Norway and its in the Capitol 50 kilometres away from where I live so trying on and see if it fits is really not an option.
Im going to buy a large I think, as its the same size that I normally wear.
I am going with Golden jets advise as we seem to be quite the same size.

Thanks again for all feedback In about 3-4 weeks I'll be sitting in my brand new Kesler jersey
Waiting for long distance delivery sucks...

Yes, I think it's some potential here
A fun fact, As I tried to get in touch with the only Hockey store in Norway today, they said that they only had Replicas of Canucks and only in size Small.
Ha, what a joke!
Nah, I bought one of the NHL store today instead
It's going to be a lot more expensive, but heck, I want a premier jersey not some replica crap anyways and Im after a Kesler jersey and I could only dream about finding that anywhere in Scandinavia.

I hope the shipping goes fast

I would go with a Large/50 for your size.

Also, if you have friends in North America...they may get you out of customs trouble by shipping it to you with a gift option.

I ordered Large
I do not have any friends in North America unfortunately.
So the Norwegian custom are probably going to rip me off.
I've never been to US or Canada before and I don't have any relatives there.
Im just a oversea supporter
At some point I will be traveling to Canada to see hockey and the beautiful nature, but just not any day soon (as its quite expensive).

Spot on!
It arrived today and wow, was it worth it?!
The coolest item I've ever owned
And the best part of it is that Kesler still are a part of the Canucks so I didn't receive a outdated jersey
Thanks for input regarding size, I went with Large and boy it's nearly perfect.

Thanks again everyone
