Your Favorite Jersey Design

Imported from the arse-kicking thread ...

So of all the jerseys you've seen (not just the ones you have) ... which has your favorite design?

I'm kinda partial to two designs used for the High Sierra Fall Century:

The one on the left here ... with my buddy BigBossMan. I like the sage and yellow hues.



And this one here of me jumping a gate. This one just has a nice design. It's also white (nice on hot days) and just a hair oversized for me (oof).



So what's your favorite?

I like jerseys without the elastic in the arms. My favorite so far:

(I actually have two of these!)

Though this isn't bad either

But the best looking jersey ever:

Hey biker395, the picture of you "jumping" that gate makes me feel uncomfortable ;-)

This one, not so much because of the design, but because of what I have done riding and raising donations while wearing it.




And this one, well, just because.

I have that poseur jersey. I wore it when I did an actual time trial. Seemed appropriate.

I've always wanted one of these, but sadly, they don't seem to be available any longer.

I think you can still get this one. I've considered it!



The "Wide Load" on the shoulders is a nice touch.

I haven't been able to find that one either, but it's been a while since I've looked.

I usually wear my Louis Garneau hi-viz yellow jersey,




but the one I have a special fondness for is the one I got doing the Tour de Cure this year.




This is what the whole front looks like:

I have had to go to some other sites because that one seems to cater to riders smaller than me. The one in question only came in small. http://thevelostore.com/product_info...roducts_id=186

Miss Kenton, I'm surprised you haven't chimed in with your favorite jersey being New Jersey.

I don't have a favorite jersey. However, many years ago a group of college friends had some Team Bozo shirts made up that we used to ride in with a large Bozo the Clown head silk-screened on the front. (Team motto: No Brain, No Pain.) A few of them are coming to town for a ride this fall, maybe I should have some proper jerseys made.
