I've heard mostly positive things about the fit prior to choosing Jakroo - the few negatives were the same things I've heard with every other mfg out there, just as the human body itself is diverse. Following the WW order I've heard positive fit comments as well, which is encouraging.
I'm sorry that you did not like your team's order, fogflip.
That could be it we ordered the race cut not pro cut. But one would expect race cut to actually be race cut! Also we have the pro bibs a few of the Skinner legged guys had some issues with the grippers but maybe that's all been resolved since are orders...

finally received my kit yesterday (friday), Jersey fit well, I haven't tried the bib, maybe tomorrows ride.
Thanks again Pren.

Aside: I love comments like "the fit is awful". Translation: "if your body is exactly the same shape as mine, the fit is awful." To me the jersey fits great: no excess material, the crotch is at the right height on the bibs (my normal team bibs fit more like this), yet I don't feel constricted anywhere.
Does that look like a jersey that doesn't fit? (me, anyway)
I felt like I paced it well but was slower than I wanted to be.... 30 km mostly uphill w/ 2 short descents.

Look at the difference in position....
I think their art department is a bit more give-the-customer-what-they-ask-for rather than show-us-a-sketch-and-we'll-make-it-professional. If you've got confidence in a design, this is fine. I know having worked with Voler in the past they are more involved in the artistic side. But I've never had any luck with Voler's fit.
