    Very nicely done job on the process.

    So, what's with this "Marino Wool?" I'd tried to wear wool knit caps, including a very nice one from Turtle Fur, wool sweaters, and wool gloves. Couldn't do it. All of them made my skin itch.

    Is there any reason to think that this particular kind of wool would not do the same?

    Merino is a softer wool, must wool makes me itch but Merino usually does not.

    Being from Wisconsin, I think this is more up your alley....

    Merino is a very soft wool, almost like cashmere (except that cashmere is from goats). Many people who find most wool itchy do not have problems with Merino wool.

    The problem with that blaze orange is that it does not say Bike Forums.net, and it does not come with the Classic & Vintage logo, designed by our very own forumer, iab!

    Although, it does have handy large pockets for either ammunition rounds or gel pacs, as the occasion may warrant.

    ok, so I never said I can spell, yes it's Merino Wool.
    Soft (not scratchy like the wool jersey you had back in the day), easy to
    care for and it keeps it's shape.

    Riding down rail trails in Wisconsin does make me sometimes wish I had on blaze orange!

    Okay, so I'm assuming that if Portland Cyclewear sees that someone wishes "Classic Vintage" embroidered, that they know to add the "bikeforums.net" logo, correct?

    Because I don't see where one specifies the bf logo to be added.

    Also, all of the examples shown with logos have the chest stripe style selected. If one selects "side stripe" then where do they place the lettering?

    Bikeforums.net and Classic & Vintage are automatic when you specify the C&V jersey.
    With the side stripe the letter goes in the same location, across the chest.
