jersey addiction

Today I received three jerseys in the mail I bought at a huge discount. My wife sees me trying them on and asks how many jerseys do you really think you need? I said like everything a man owns n+1 be glad I don't feel that way about women. I got the death stare................

Unless you have some ridiculous number I don't really see the issue. It beats doing wash every 2 days if you ride often, plus I'm sure you could throw out the shoe/purse/whatever card for things she has.

I have a ridiculous number of jerseys, it must be some type of fetish or OCD

Agreed, I have about a two week supply of bicycle socks and about a weeks supply of jersey's. As well as about a weeks supply of both bib and "regular" shorts. It's nice to be able to grab a jersey/shorts/socks without having to do the "sniff test."

I have over 40 jerseys. It's nice to have selection.

+1 I haven't counted but it's close to that. My favorites are ones with full zippers, they work best with the bibs. I also seem to have a bunch of shorts too.

Uh, n+1 is for bikes, tools and other gear; definitely not for clothes.

I wonder if the death stare was about multiple women, or your inference that you own her.

In either case, good luck, I'm afraid you may need it.

I don't know (and am afraid to count) how many bike jerserys I've got. I had a surge a couple years ago when I lost enough weight I could get into a smaller size -- hey, that's a pretty good excuse!

The real "problem" is that bike jerseys just don't wear out. Even if I only buy one short sleeve and one long sleeve jersey a year for the next ten years, I'll still end up with 20 more than I have now.

Shirts are my favorite piece of clothing to purchase for my regular wardrobe. I translated that same like to jerseys. However, I purged a few recently and now I have another excuse to purchase more.
