Only thing that bugged me about the jerseys is that they put a time limit on the poll and ideas and it was closed before I knew the Clydesdale forum had been created.

Biggest issue right now is a design. If I tried to design a horse it would look like Pokey If we find someone that can photoshop up some great looking horses/clydes we can get the ball rolling - there's a pretty general (well, as general as one could get) of a Thourobred and Clyde going neck and neck to the finish line (have to re-read that thread...).

it was me that dropped the ball.

I had a friend who was going to do the design for me. I got her a cool shot of a clyde running at the camera, gave her the basic instruction of keeping it simple:

clyde in like an ink line drawing pulling peloton or leading peleton.

Motto was simply, "That is why they call us draft horses."

(Although, there is a part of me now which would love to add the url for bikeforums/clydesdale to the sleeve.)

Image I gave her:
clyde2.JPG

****************

On the shirt part a whole bunch of folks had really specific must/must nots about the shirt sizes and stuff. The few consignment type companies I found did not seem to have the selection several people expected.

But that was before somebody posted here about a vendor with really good service for his cludesdale sized shirts.

I'll do some research tonight and post a follow up here.

I'm more than happy reposting the survey or stepping away.

If anyone remembers the thread about jerseys for big guys (or at least who started it it will save me a bunch of searching... I neglected to bookmark it.)

Hambone, if these are going to be Jersey's and not T's, PM me when you have a price! I'll be interested!

It would be cool to have the BF Clydesdale link somewhere on it - kinda like what the Cali girls did.

Keep us informed - I'm horrible at design but decent at layout. I can give you a hand, just PM me and let me know what you need.

Yes, do it. I'm in. Maybe if it sells well, you could make it in smaller sizes, and add " I'm with Clyde " to it

So, if you do the work, I'll buy (most likely) whatever design you come up with!

I searched and searched for something like that and couldn't find one of a clyde. Finally I came up with the design on the other thread. Title is Jersey Design. (Jersey Design)

Post this one there and let's see what folks say. I'm not married to my street sign idea.
