Foo Jersey Ordering Thread

Ok Foosters, here it is. Thanks to artifice for amazing work on the design.


Stacey Tribute Jersey


Non-tribute Jersey



Sizing

Race Cut

We've designed our race cut jersey based on a European fit. It's a tailored design worn by only the fittest cyclists who are lean and mean. Think pro riders, elite category 1 and 2 riders and those super fit skinny guys that love to go up mountains fast. Just because you're a racer doesn't mean you should automatically order the race cut. We know lots of racers who order "club cut". Why? Because although they race almost every weekend they still have an American build and the tight-fitting Euro race cut just won't do the job. Again, order the size kit!

Club Cut

For everybody else we offer the club cut. Mind you, our club cut is not a baggy potato-sack jersey. It's still a classic cycling jersey that fits the majority of our customers....even the racers who are not as slim as they might think. Not sure which cut is for you? Did we mention you should order the size kit?



Here's how to get one.

PM me with the following information:
Size- XS to XXXL
Cut- Womens, Race, Club
Zippers- 1/2 length, 3/4 length, full length
Rat or No Rat

Once you've done that, send me money Currently, it appears you have to have a paypal account for this. I'm looking into putting a button on here so it'll be much simpler and I'll be able to take credit cards. Ok, log on to Paypal and send $58 to unsafealpine@gmail.com. This will cover the jersey and shipping to you. If you don't live in the U.S. and want one, please send me a PM and I'll figure out how to get one to you.

Please link your BF username and your Paypal email address so I know who's actually giving me money. I figure that might come in handy down the road. Thanks.


The ordering will take place on Monday, August 25th.

That means you need to PM me and I need to have money in my Paypal account by that date, otherwise you don't get one of these sweet jerseys. If you want one after this date, PM me with a wrtten doctor's excuse and I'll see what I can do.


Any other questions?

PM me.

1. Isn't it cheaper the more you order? I know you need a minumum of 10 to order but with Foo, who knows if you'll have to order lots of them! Should we take a pre order count to see how much the final price would be?

2. What if you don't have paypal and don't want to open an account with them? Will a money order work for you?

The only thing that gets cheaper is PayPal's fee, and it starts at 3000 orders

Hold off for a couple days until I can figure out something. There may be a way to pay with a card that I'm unaware of.

Do you guys think artifice and UA should get a free jersey each for their trials and tribulations?

Edit :- I guess its a personal thing so its upto you if you wanna add a token amount it your order or not. No need to voice your opinion or feel pressured to put more money in that requested for. . I realize that this might mean that because of the generosity of FOOsters, UA might have more money beyond what covers the jersey. He can use that on beer and hookers. I am skinnyone and I approve this message.

You could, but it will not automatically get you a jersey.

I'd really prefer not to do money orders. I'm not that comfortable giving my address out, and I don't want to deal with what happens if the money order gets weird. If you have serious issues about using PayPal or credit cards (hopefully). Just PM me and we can work something out.

Actually you have to come up with a really big order from Champ-Sys to get a qty discount.

I know that when we did the NorCal jerseys we had them made with the raglan sleeves rather than the set in sleeves. All the jerseys I own are raglan sleeves and I find them more comfortable than set in. Just a thought before you order.

I know you will, but do make sure to post if there are methods NOT involving Pay-Pal that one may use to order a jersey. I have had bad experience with Pay-Pal in the past (okay, 6 years ago...) and am not really looking forward to setting up all that j0nx just for this one thing... I really like the design, can't wait to rep my race cut!

ahh I'm so excited. Thanks UA for handling this! Can you post totals for orders so far so we can watch the count skyrocket?!

Also-- have any ladies ordered jerseys from them before? I have a hard time thinking I'd be a M, but maybe...

Yeah...I love the design - and I'll pay more for a wool 'un...maybe a wool/poly blend if all merino is a no-can-do?
