Wonder if you could get aerotech to do them. They have Jerseys in real American sizes up to 6X. Wonder if they'd do custom designs/logos.

I'll look into them when the time comes. I'm sure we'll have an option somewhere!

Clydesdale and Athenas Jersey Order Thread - ROUND 3

Just catching up on thread. If there is a re-design down road I would likely be interested again.

Interest is dwindling. Actually, I think the "market is pretty saturated". I had to buy two jerseys just to make the 10 minimum order. However, lets give it time and see what happens. I do think a re-design would be good, but it can't be done too soon.

We're going to have to switch manufacturers, too. Champ-Sys dropped the larger sizes.

I think people need to post more pictures of them in the jersey. Also a review perhaps? I know there is a thread floating around already, but perhaps those who have been using them can write a review on how they have held up, the quality, and so on?

Mine is from round 1. It has held up great. I don't have many jerseys, so this gets a lot of use. This is a useless review, though, simply because the manufacturer has stopped making anything larger than 4x (if I remember correctly - they've dropped the sizing options so many times I've lost track). Any future projects will have to be through a new vendor.

The good word is my Uncle is out of ICU. Sorry....let me back up. My Uncle came down with spinal meningitis and has been in ICU for a few weeks now. I had hopes of getting everything shipped out over the weekend. Oh, wait, let me back up further. The box showed up from China on Friday! OK, so I planned on doing it Saturday, but my parents called and needed some help at my Uncle's place. So, sorry, folks, but I dropped all of you to help them! Deal with it! Anyway, I got up at 4:30 this morning to get them all packaged up and shipped out, and found out I'm out of boxes. Went to the post office this morning and got more boxes. I'm HOPING to get them all packaged tonight and to the post office tomorrow morning.

Stay tuned.

PJ, family first. I will wait as can everyone else that ordered one.

But since we are all one big C&A family, get with the shipping!

I kid, I totally kid. Thanks for taking care of all of this, if you are ever out in Chicago or I am out your way I owe you a beverage of your choice.

Thanks everyone. The C/A family has a great attitude. I still plan on getting them shipped tomorrow morning. Obviously, family DID come first, though!

I wish had seen this sooner. They look really cool. Oh well. Maybe next time. I read about it being a while, but that will give me time to get down to a size that I can fit into something more reasonable than currently.

Beverage of his choice? What if it's 25 year old scotch? Hahaha.

Glad to hear your uncle is out of the ICU. My friend had meningitis at 25 and for a young guy, it was incredibly brutal. Can't imagine how hard it must have been for someone older.

It's all out of my hands now! 1-3 day priority mail, depending on where you live.
