First of all, not considering their costs; remove that factor. Then are the Campbell's Full of Beans jersey/Wonder Bread Jerseys cool..Which one would you prefer to own.If you like them at all....
The following poll. Which is cooler? Both stupid...?Not familiar you can find them both on the web site of Velo Gear....
At first I really thought the Campbell's soup, Full of Beans jersey was really cool...Guess, just an ANdy Warhaul fan...I would think it would raise some comments and can easily be seen...
Finally, do you own one.? Nor do I hope that I will succumb to owning one.

I like them both about the same, though I'd wear the Wonder Bread jersey. I also like the Quisp jersey

How much do they pay you to advertise their products?

Andy Warhaul did not worry about advertising Campbells'. Both these are American instututions..Growing up as kids, w/o either of these products-many of us would have starved.

The Wonder Bread jersey and particularily the Full of Beans jersey is different and sort of ironic as one follows in a peloton..If you know what I mean...Actually the Warhaul painting was Tomato soup, but Bean soup is close enough..
At first, I was inclined to get the Full of Beans jersey.My bike group thought it silly. Guess, that influenced me...Still like the looks/color of the Wonder bread jersey..Strange..I hate Baloon bread..!

I wouldn't wear either one. However, I wouldn't pick on someone for wearing them, either.

Thinking about why would one put the wonder bread symbol on a jersey..Well, what comes to mind, is sort of a take off on early Renaissance paintings of 'still fruit,' adopted to 21st C. commercialism..
Heah, I just like the color and graphics of the Wonder bread jersey. What might have been my draw to the full of beans jersey, when I first saw it.Well, the irony of being full of beans as you putt ahead of someone else is a peloton. Sure we all worry about the rider in front being full of beans.
That had a slight draw, in thinking that I might buy it. But the price , and reason over came the draw of such a grossly commercial emotional draw. But, then maybe Campbell's sponsor a cycling team?
Think my favorite so far..The Trojan Man jersey...Wonder, How much do they cost..
Can you imagine the emotional effect upon your competiveness as the rider you pass shouts out "Trojan Man." Cause me to turn up the pace, after being taunted with such a couple times.

I for one think these jerseys are cool. I like the Jolt jerseys also. I don't know...I think they're just different and fun. Why do people complain about the advertising? How often do you wear a t-shirt with advertising on it in your regular everyday life? Probably a lot more than you think. I used to eat Wonder Bread when I was a kid, and it's good bread. I used to eat Campbell's soup, and it always tasted good to me.

That Trojan jersey is the best, though!

No one's ever been able to adequately explain to me why these things cost so much. Jerseys are ridiculously expensive, and, on the topic of advertising, it seems like if your jersey looks like Dale junior's car, you should being paying LESS for all the free advertising. I get the irony and like the looks of these jerseys,and I'd wear one if someone gave it to me, but I'll be DANGED if I'll cough up that much cash for a piece of recycled plastic when I can go to a sporting goods shop,(or better yet, Goodwill,) and get the same fabric for 10 or 15 bucks. If you're good enough to really need the edge a $100 dollar jersey will give you, I'm sure your sponser will give you one free of charge.

I agree that jerseys are insanely expensive. I bought all of mine on eBay for under $15. They're all as plain as can be, and that's personally how I like it, but I don't really see the problem with anyone else's preference. If I could buy a Twinkies jersey for the same cost as a plain jersey, I think I'd buy a Twinkies jersey just because it would be funny.

Cost is the main factor, but we were told to ignore cost.

clearance + 20% off + team performance brought the jersey down to $35 or something like that. Still pretty expensive but I decided to reward myself for getting straight A+'s last year

Retro...Not a new concept...Sales staff call it 'marketing.' Works pretty effective..How often do consumers purchase what they really don't need or often in bad taste...How do you explain Nehru Jackets.
