The Jersey Hunting Gods Have Been Good To Me Lately......

I wandered into these three jerseys in the last couple of weeks for not too much coin -- I got them all for less than $25. A nice Woolistic Molteni, and a couple Giordanas -- a De Rosa and a Tulip Computers. The Tulip job is the only one my size, but the sea foam green is pretty obnoxious so it is a good candidate for me to wear. It will clash or complement nicely with my red Chesini X-Uno......

All three are cool, but I'd love to wedge my chubby bod into that De Rosa jersey.

Very nice find.

When you said "Jersey hunting" I thought you meant THIS!

I swear, I've got to stay away from Ted Cook's ribs in south Mpls.

I'm very well fed this winter.

I took my John Hollands frameset out of the box today, and I swear to god she wanted to crawl back in when she saw the size of her new owner.

I'll typically come across 1, maybe 2 jerseys locally a year, through thrift. They usually don't fit, but thats ok as online jersey shopping can be fun too, you can score some sweet looking ones on the cheap, for example this was my latest jersey purchase, its so nasty looking in a good way I had to snag it:



Though I think I need to pick up a pergoretti now just so I have something that matches when I wear it:

There is a rider in my club that wears a wool Molteni jersey and it looks even better in real life than in the pics.

divineAndbright, that funkadelic mess jersey is really disgusting. I like it!

Whoops, I forgot I had another find from not so long ago. A 1995 Carrera Jeans jersey. And regarding the De Rosa jersey, the sleeves are pretty cool with some milestone dates on one and Ugo's signature on the other. One of the photo images on the rear is kind of ironic, one being Eddy Merckx wearing a Molteni Arcore jersey. Here are some more pics.....
