We’ll unlock the size chart secrets of the big brands and sprinkle in some fun facts about jerseys along the way.

Nike and Mitchell & Ness (M&N)

In the retail world, NBA jerseys are dominated by two names: Nike, synonymous with current player designs, and M&N, the bastion of throwback styles and special edition pieces. Let's get into the details of each brand:

🎯 Nike Swingman (Sw) Jerseys: The Fan's Fit

The design variety is vast, which means chest measurements can vary slightly from jersey to jersey. How you wear it matters too. Planning to layer it over a hoodie or wear it as is? It'll influence your size pick.

🎯 M&N Swingman (Sw) Jerseys: The Vintage Fit

M&N jerseys are known for a more tailored waist, giving a relaxed chest fit that's comfortable and stylish. Swingman versions are often the fan's first choice, teeming with styles that cater to indecision and ensuring your wallet stays happy.

🎯 Nike Authentic (Au) – The Athlete's Cut

Longer in length and narrower across the chest, Nike’s Authentic jerseys are engineered for activity and an athletic look. Crafted with performance and on-court style in mind, these jerseys mirror what players wear in-game, offering a snug fit and built for movement. Note that not every style, edition, or player jersey will be released in the Authentic version. For instance, the beloved Hardwood Classic jerseys never have an Authentic version by Nike.

🎯 M&N Authentic (Au) – The Connoisseur's Collection

M&N Authentic jerseys might not have significant size deviations, but the jump in quality is noticeable. Made with heavier fabric and featuring tackle twill embroidery, these jerseys stand out as a heavyweight option. Every jersey is a nod to specific game jerseys from past eras, providing a tangible piece of basketball history for your collection.

It's important to note that Nike authentic jerseys, especially the City Edition, are a rarity and are released in extremely limited quantities each year. Their Authentic versions, particularly, are hot commodities — they sell out within moments of the official drop and consistently escalate in value in the secondary market due to their scarcity and the unique one-year selling window. This makes the Authentic versions not just a piece of sportswear but a collectible item that appreciates over time.

That’s a wrap on our guide to NBA jersey sizing. While the Hoop Jersey Store team can nearly guarantee a perfect fit, personal style and preference do play their part. If you're looking for a jersey that echoes your passion for the game, don't hesitate to try on different sizes to discover your ideal match. And remember, we’re here to guide you to that perfect fit, every time — just reach out to our specialists via email or Instagram for bespoke sizing assistance.
