Twin Six - Six Days of Christmas

Randomly went to the Twin Six page today and saw they started a sale series. Today (Friday) is 26% off short sleeve jersies.

http://www.twinsix.com/

I'm seriously thinking about getting this one: http://www.twinsix.com/gear/mens-tech/the-brew-pub-2012

Anyone here have any experience with them?

I got a Twin Six jersey at Vntgdrms shop (The Unlikely Cyclist). It is a really nice jersey. She is particular about brands she carries and I trust her that Twin Six is a quality stuff.

This is the one I got:

What on EARTH does this mean though: (I like it though, that's cool!)

The fit is between a Euro-cut and an American-cut

My guess is between "tight" and "loose" fit?

I got the women's jersey shown in my link in x-large and it fits pretty well. It is snug but so is my 3x bikes for boobs women's jersey.

I've purchased several Fat Cyclist T-shirts from them... and been extremely disappointed with the quality both times.

Why dud you buy several?

Seems curious if they were poor quality.

I can't speak for t shirts but from what I know the jerseys are well made.

I still want to know if the jerseys are race cut, euro cut, club cut or american cut... race and euro are right out, just saying.

I bought them during FatCyclist fund-raising campaigns, so they were more about giving money than getting a great T-shirt. The first one was crap, but I thought it might have been a fluke so I ordered another. Sadly, the second one was just as bad as the first. Ended up throwing them both away...
