Got my Clyde jersey just now

from Mr. Photo Joe at 42 Wallaby Lane, Sydney, Australia.

I guess he did NOT take the money and run. (golf clap). It fits slightly differently from the test kit - more of an even fit (I thought the test jersey was snug in the shoulders) and maybe a bit smaller than I remember, so it's more form fitting in 2X than my other 2X jerseys.

Quality looks good, graphics look good, I give it a double thumbs up.

Yes, they all went out via priority mail yesterday morning. I didn't post because I wanted everyone to get a surprise in the mail box. Beans, we'll talk about getting yours to you. Hope you all enjoy them!

Oh yes! It was a surprise. Thanks, PJ. When I opened the mailbox, my first thought was that it was too early to get stuff I ordered this week, (a bunch of accessories from various people for my new Pentax Q camera, (It's the camera in the picture of my jersey in the picture thread.) Then, I saw the return address and still wondered what was inside because the box is so small. It's a nice jersey. Wish we had matching bibs. Maybe next year? Thanks again,PJ, for spearheading the endeavor.

You can just mail mine afterall if you can. I say if you can since I initially said otherwise. If you can't I'll make arrangements.
I sent a pm with address.

Looks like Monday, my friend. Actually, it looks like almost everyone who didn't get it Saturday will get it on Monday (International shipments excluded).

Oh, and I opened somebody's. Don't remember whose, though. I found an XL and wasn't wearing my glasses so I didn't see the "full zipper" on the label. Thought it was mine. Didn't try it on or anything. Saw the zipper and realized that I opened the wrong one. Sorry 'bout it.

I think it means you'll need to use the good soap when you get it.

Full zippers rule!

Oh, that sounds so adolescent. However, full zippers are quite handy on those really hot days. You can zip them down almost all the way, (if you have stuff in the rear pockets). Then they act like a wind catcher to help cool one down. Or, you can pretend that you are a professional and unzip the all the way and let it flop about as you're riding. BUT ... you can only do that if you have the skill to ride hands free so you can zip it back up without stopping.
