    Retro Jersey Interest Thread

    This is the thread for gauging interest for production of J9, the retro jersey with blue sleeves. The cost should be the same as the others through ChampionSys, roughy $50 with shipping, etc. This may not be the final design, I'm thinking to appeal to a wider audience and to remove issues of trademark and the notion that this is the "official" jersey, that we should remove "BIKEFORUMS" and put "SOCAL" there instead... bikeforums could go where "dotnet" is now

    Yeah, I had just linked to the pictures mary had provided, but those just got pulled. I'm asked the designer for the pictures again, when I get them I'll host them on my own server this time...

    Does "retro" in this context refer to the design only, or will this be a wool jersey?

    I am in if the costs are reasonable. Might be good to state the cost? I am assuming the same as the other 50-55?

    We would use ChampionSys like the others, so yeah it should be in the roughly $50 range

    I'd be interested in this one, medium size.

    If this does not get made I have absolutely no interest in a red/black eastern european themed jersey.

    I'm interested in the version of this design with more white, actually. Except, like umd said, switch SoCal and Bikeforums so that people won't know I spend all my free time on here.

    If the one in white doesn't get enough buyers, then I'll buy this one in a...um, small? XS? Can someone point me to the sizing chart please?

    me too. but be careful. this thread may end-up in the for sale forum if you remove the bikeforums affiliation. because..you know...that seems to be the rule.

    I changed the text on the OP to include that I would keep bikeforums on it. So you don't have to move me...

    it's ok. i think we have enough interest to go ahead and order, but i wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to get in on it if they wanted.

    just kind of disappointing that some random mod would feel the need to take things into their own hands without knowing or understanding what's going on.

    umd-
    I'd be up for one of these (although I did kinda like the white sleeves )
    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    I don't want to commit just yet for hopes that the white/blue vintage style jersey gets made. But if that doesn't happen, I'll definitely take one of these in a medium.

    Edit: If I could get this style jersey AND the white/blue vintage style for around $40 a piece, I'd take one of each.

    Yeah, white sleeves add a "contemporary" touch to a "retro" design. Quite cool.
    Either way, count me in for one.

    I appreciate the efforts of going thru that you guys r making.

    If there is enough interest for both blue and white sleeves then I suppose we can do both.

    Before you start changing the design by committee, you might want to consult the original designer.

    That would be me.

    I need to request that any changes to the original design go through me. I think that's only fair.
