Anyone want a Medium 50+ Jersey?

I have one of the originals so that in itself makes it a collectors item! It is a medium club cut and I'd like for it to find a good home. I can wear it but I am not getting any smaller and would be more comfortable with something a little larger. Since Chris is placing another order I plan to order a large. I've only worn it a 5-6 times and it doesn't have any snags, discoloration, etc. The zipper works perfectly. It was laundered after every use, etc. It looks like it did when it came out of the bag.

I'll make it really simple. I'd like to get $30 including shipping inside the US. You don't even have to pay until after you've received it and can see its condition. The only criteria is that you do have to particpate in 50+ and plan to use it or turn around and resell it (no ebayers please).

If you cannot afford the full price for a new one or maybe you're a real value shopper this might fit the bill.

You can PM me with your mailing information and I'll get it right out just in time for all this spring riding.

What kind of size is 'Medium'? I'm a skinny ex-marathon runner, 38 inch chest (which, in the bike shop here selling Nike, puts me into 'Large'. 'Scuse me?)

I'd like one of 'em shirts

That reminds me of a friend who went shopping for shorts at the local PI store. She's 4'11", probably 85 pounds. She tried on the size small shorts, and they were too small. She walked out of the dressing room and asked the clerk, "Who do these fit?"

Bike clothing sizing is just crazy. Someone tell me what size 50+ jersey will fit me, and I'll order one. I've had large's that fit fine, and returned XXL's because they were too small.

I'll jump in here and say that I also have a short-sleeve club cut medium to sell. Like JPPE's, it's the original, worn maybe five times. I also have a large race-cut vest to sell, worn twice. For reference, in Pearl Izumi jerseys, I wear a size large. Check Curtis' size specs on the new jersey order for sizing. I have a 42-44 chest. The medium club cut probably best fits a 38-40. The vest race cut probably best fits a 36-38 (felt like I was in a sausage casing wearing that). The race cut seems to be the proverbial European sizing.

If interested, PM me, please.

The medium jersey I offered has been spoken for. Headed to a good home.
