If you both are in, this would complete the order. No pressure. Just throwing that out there.

No pressure, but if 2 grown men show up at your place of employment with brass knuckles.....I know nothing about it....

I learned a lot from Chicago politics, but mainly palm grease or brass knuckles get things done.

Order window is closing on Sunday, September 8. If you want in, now's your chance. BTW, based on the experience this round, future orders won't be considered until we have at least 15, maybe 20 people interested. Those who committed and paid have been very patient. Thank you.

Now that the ordering is closed what is happening with this? Can you go forward with just 8 jerseys or will we be getting refunds?

Thanks.

Joe

I'm moving forward. I'll buy the extra two jerseys. Have started the order process, but just like last round, the vendor has removed the larger sizes from the website. Working with my rep right now to get them put back on.

Thanks for all your work on this. I hate to see you have to eat the additional Jerseys.

Thank you, and please don't worry about it. It's the cost of learning.

What sizes did you get? Or is it just for you?

Just in case someone would want to buy another....

I ordered two 4x Short Sleeve full zip. Not for me. I may throw them up on Fleabay and see what happens.

I really think this is going to be the last order round for quite a while. With Champ-Sys dropping anything larger than 4x, they don't really "fit" our needs anymore. It worked out OK for this round, but between the reduction of size offerings (we are the C/A forum after all) and the reduced participation, I think this style has reached saturation. I think I'll give it some time off, then start again in a year or so with a new design....maybe. Guess it depends on interest.

When, not if ( ), you start a new design would there be collaboration again as well? I enjoyed throwing some ideas in the pot with this design.

And if you want to train me in your ways, I would be a willing C&A jersey padawan orderer.

Thanks, Mike. I agree that it will probably be a "when" more than "if", but we'll see based on interest at the time. And yes, I enjoyed the colloborative effort of this endeavor. I know people say decision by committee never works, but in this case, I think it went really well.

I'm struggling to justify the $71 expense for myself ... when you get them in let me know ... I might want one. I think the 4x would work for me.

Will do. There is no pressure. $71 for a shirt is a lot of money. I get it! I'm pretty sure I can sell them on ebay if necessary.

Pending seeing how the fit works out for me, I would love to order again when a new design comes rolling around. I also have an interest in design and typeface and stuff, so I could contribute.

Awesome. It'll be a while, but the colaborativ effort makes it fun. I enjoyed facilitating the discussions and guiding the process, however everyone had great ideas and I really like how it ended up.
