I only have some of the Love2Pedal bike shorts (Falconi), which work fine for me (the sizing is a bit larger than normal).

I have several jerseys. I tend to pick them for their visibility, but they're also useful for the pockets!

Most of mine are PrimalWear, but I've picked up a couple at local organized rides as well.

I need to find a couple of long-sleeved ones for these colder days.

I have 3 jerseys from LOVE 2 Pedal. "Old Farts Cycle Club" and "Ride" both made by Suarez the third is a plain jersey made by Falconi which is too big the two Suarez fit perfect and they are all the same size.

I have several jerseys myself. Sizing is all over the place though. I have 1 medium in Primal Wear, and 1 Voler club cut that is a large. Everything else is X large " race fit" jerseys. I find that you need to go up at least one size bigger then normal for anything listed as race fit. The Love2Pedal store has a lot of Primal Wear, which is Clyde friendly if you get the bigger cut. A lot of jerseys only come in race fit, so check things out before you buy.

I think I need to look into a jersey. the cotton T just isn't working, it gets soaked and stays soaked.

However, i dress to minimize my size....as neat as the mushroom cloud jersey looks, I'd never wear such a shirt. I'm sure I'm not alone among the clydesdale set.

so...plain jerseys with a clyde fit?

Anyone buy these

I can feel the hate mail now.
There's a "Old Farts Cycling Team" jersey with the spoked wheel logo in the center.
The spoked wheel is the logo on the jerseys of the club I cycle with (and,yes, most are over 55)

I will say that even within the range of decent jerseys I've bought, there are differences in wicking which are noticeable when you drip dry the jerseys after washing.

In that vein, the order of drying is

1. Old bargain Assos CSC irregular jersey, almost the same drying time as
2. Giordana Competitive Cyclist and Brooklyn jerseys

bit of distance down to

3. Pearl Izumi Slice and Focus jerseys.

All of them good, all of them stink like crap after you wear them once, and all of them wick like crazy.

It may not be everyone's preference, but I vastly prefer a full zip where possible... makes peeing in bibs easier, and also helps on really hot days.

As to sizing, Clyde just means a single number, and while I'm over 2 bills, I'm also over 6 feet tall. If you're 5'4" and 225, your sizing isn't the same as someone 6'10" and 225... it's a bit of a personal thing, but once you find one line that fits you, you can start just buying them mail order without thinking much about it.

I have one I got from them that says 'Cranky Old ******* Bike Club' and LOVE it. It's well made, the payment and shipping was flawless, and the shirt gets lots of attention from other riders and passers by.
