NHL authentic jerxey size question (difference between size 56 and 60)

Im about to order one of the new RBK hockey jerseys. The authentic one for $250. Can somebody tell what the difference is between size 56 and size 60?
Im not a fatbody, Im just tall and have long arms. Usually when I get a replica jersey in XXL size, it fits good until I wash it a couple times, then the arm sleeves get too short for me.

Washing shouldn`t make a difference. They are polyester, thus do not shrink.

The new Edge Authentics fit smaller than older authentics. Whatever you fit in the old style, go a size up. I used to fit 52, but I got a 56 Edge Canucks jersey.

the sizes correspond well to a mens dress shirt for chest/shoulder and arm length. Check out both in a mens dress shirt and see which you prefer.

Not sure I agree with that as I certainly dont want one of my jerseys as tight as one of my dress shirts. I go with a really loose fit, I wear a 52 or sometimes 54 when I should really be wearing a 48 or 50. Keep in mind that a 60 or larger is typically a goal cut, so unless you're large you'd be swimming in something like that.

Hasek wears a 54, Brody a 52. Goalcut come in size from 42 to 62. Its rare to see a goalie in an authentic over a 58. The only tighter area on a dress shirt would be the neck and thats a different measure thats not part of the general sizing numbers used. Collar size is designated with its own measure. Tip: if your dress shirts fit tight/uncomfortable...your in the wrong size.

As far as SIZE they do correspond. OF COURSE, wearing a 42 mens dress shirt, I would never want that fit for an ice hockey jersey UNLESS its for street wear. Game wear, I use a 52 and street wear its a 42. I didnt suggest he match the jersey to his dress shirt size. Simply use a dress shirt as a gage to help determine the size jersey he would want to order, as far as chest, arm length and shoulders.

Isn't it true that the real authentics, the edge jerseys that the players wear on the ice, cost like $500 and aren't available for sale?

If they have a price tag on them, how could they not be for sale?

No, what you heard is not true. The authentic jerseys you can buy from retailers are the same jerseys that the players are issued.
