Classic & Vintage Jersey - Round 1

I volunteered to design a jersey for the C&V forum in a previous thread. I had a little time today and did a couple ideas.

I am breaking this process into 3 rounds to separate the different ideas.
Round 1 is about the overall layout.
Round 2 is about the font.
Round 3 is about the color.

So, in this round, please do not critique the font or the color, ONLY look at the layout. The font and color were left generic will chosen in the next two rounds. The jersey is based on this one from Portland Cyclewear, black was the preference from the previous thread.




Concept A




Concept B




Concept C




Concept D

Who makes the pictured jersey? I like it especially the colour.
also how about concept A with bike forums beneath and in the center. It would look more like a vintage team jersey.

I like C, maybe as suggested the Bikeforums centered.
to me D looks too broken up, my eye won't settle on
any one thing even though there are no more than 3 or
4 items its too busy for me. A is similiar to D, don't like
the broken up text, atmo.

I like C too just as lotek described with BikeForums centered. Maybe with a small gap 2" between the C&V text block and where BikeForums is printed.

How about adding ".net" to the BikeForums name on the shirt.

I'll vote for the C concept as well, but add .net to BikeForums.

And I like it in black and white. Next preference would be pink and white. Third choice would be blue and white.

*I am just joking about the pink and white.

Schwinn's Radiant Coppertone and White?

I voted C, and if I had my preference, I also join the list of people asking for "BikeForums.net" centered.

C-1 for me! I like the sound of radiant coppertone, but I don't think it would go very well with red hair. However, if that's what we go with, then I would still purchase one!
