Order your 50+ jersey and kit info - PLACE ORDERS HERE!!

Orders are closed.

Please check your order info and contact me if there is an error.

I will update this thread in a new message when I have shipping info.





Fine print:
This is a not-for-profit effort. One of my personal goals is to not end up being out of pocket in doing this.
Because of that, I have no room for error. I can't make refunds or changes to completed orders. I can't change sizes after I place the order.
This entire process will take a while. I've put a three week deadline for payment, and the company takes a about 6 weeks to make them.
Prices reflect paypal fees, postage from the company and postage to you, plus a bit for tape and labels and such.

Just a warning to those that will be buying- The sizing is a bit tight. I take a medium in Europen manufactures and they are just a bit loose. (Except for Assos who seem to think we are all 6ft tall and thin.) That Euro medium is a 38" chest and talking to CCCorlew-He suggested going by the medium sizing and not the 38". The medium in club cut is listed as a 42" and may have been a bit large as a 42. As a medium it fits perfectly. That is in Club cut. For those without a Gut- The race cut may be perfect.

And After 4? years of mine it still washes perfectly but it has shrunk a bit round the gut area- So allow a bit of expansion room by getting the Club cut if your weight is beginning to be re-distributed.

And Thanks CCCorlew for taking the effort to re-arrange for the members again.

Doug.

I placed an order. I hope I did it right... the paypal thing and all, that is. I think I did because they sent an email confirmation.

Thanks much, I found the answer here..

"Q: Will you make a 60+, or 70+ or whatever jersey?
A: I don't plan to. For me, the jersey is more about the forum and community here than some specific age."

Some of us here are a long way from 50. Wish it wasn't the case..

Just a short question:
If I use PayPal to send money, do I need an account? When I go to paypal.com, I have a couple choices to make: "Friends and Family" or "Buy Something", and then for each one there are a few payment methods, with different fees attached. Sorry to be dense, but which options should I be using?

You need to make an account and buy something, I think.

Club cut medium is 42". I am a 38" chest and Rather than go for the chest size- I went for the size jersey that I normally wear that is a Medium. I don't like jerseys skin tight but I don't like lots of baggy material either. Looking at the tables and I should have gone for a Small or Even XS. I never buy XS- even though I am smallish build so was going to order small. Conversing with CCCorlew and I went for the medium.

Before posting I checked the size on my jersey and it is Club Cut in Medium. I am a 38" chest but the Gut has expanded a bit but as you can see from the pic- the medium fits me.

I have read the entire thread, and the FAQ. Please consider *in the future* possibly doing this in a 5XL and/or a 6XL? Yes, higher costs are the Norm for these tent-sized objects, but some of us would really like them~! Some of us are are both Clyde/Athena and 50+ - and would LOVE to get one of these. Please explore this for the future orders? I do not know if you have tried in the past or not? I do understand that doing so in this order period is not an option.

I'll be ordering, however, it may take me a little time as I'm not sure what! That plus I need to access a friends account at playpal and let them pay or create my own.

Hate Pay Pal but understand the need for it. Will see if my password still works or I have to spend a 1/2-hour trying to get into my Pay Pal account as per usual.

That's a club cut medium. Only in my dreams do i wear a race cut.
BTW, this photo makes me look a bit thinner than I really am. It must be the light and perspective. I wish I really was as thin as I look here.
