Clydesdale Jersey Poll

This poll is for guys who are really thinking about buying a jersey. The rest of you are more than welcome to cajole, tease, or offer suggestions but please do it in the reply section -- don't take the poll.
******************************************
It looks like we'll be able to get semi custom jerseys for around $60.

In deference to the "I'm a Clydesdale but I'm not fat/slow/etc." guys, I've limited most of the selections to non-fat/cute stuff. No "Fueled by Krispi Kreme."

Any thoughts you have please reply. Also, if you have any history of ordering jerseys, I'd love to hear from you.

And if anyone has any public Clydesdale images...

One of the guys I work with is a graphic artist. I asked him to come up with a stylized version of the Clydesdales pulling some skinny cyclists (humor injected) I don't know what he'll come up with, but we shall see.

I checked "other". I wouldn't buy any of them...I'm not opposed to a Clyde jersey, I just don't like any of the ideas. Good luck.

I like pulling the beer wagon but I'm not so sure if it should be behind thoroughbred - almost the other way around would be even funnier.

Yeah...like a big guy on a bike pulling a beer wagon, and a group of skinny guys following along, drooling.

It's "lose", not "loose".

How about a dark "metallic" grey plain jersey with



on the front?

How about 'SIZE' on the front....
and... 'MATTERS' on the back.

or

Whales on Wheels

or

the front of an old fashioned locomotive; and the caboose on the back

or

Team Orca
we take a big bite out of life
(you could add a graphic that looks like Lenny in Shark Tales)

or

a humongus pile of chicken wings on the front and a smaller pile of bones on the back

Clydesdale horse on a bike with a harness coming towards you, pulling a beerwagon in the background. Big furry hooves on the pedals and drapped over the handlebars.

No skinny dogs or cyclists anywhere. It's not about them.
