65+ Jersery order thread, must read to order

Order Cut off date is 15 July.

I think we have a happy medium, one suggested no Medicare eligible, one said have some humor.
Assend Sportsware

Look carefully at the sizing information. SIZING CHART Is Attached

** Make sure everyone measures themselves out and checks the sizing chart from Ascend Sportswear before ordering. Not all brands fit the same. Check our sizing chart carefully! If they are accurate about the measurement, then the size will be perfect. **

Ordering:

Elevate Jerseys come in Sport and Relaxed Cut $68 a piece for 10+qty

Volare Elite Jerseys come in Sport and Race (male unisex only) $89 a piece for 10+ qty

Cuts are described in the sizing chart, the old “Club Cut” they call relaxed.

I need the following information, VIA email or message. Message me if you want my mailing address to send a check / money order. PayPal is fine also.
Once orders are verified, I will post an excel with your order information. That sheet will be what is ordered, so check it.

1. What Item; Elevate or Volare Jersey
2. What cut; Race, Sport, relaxed
3. sleeve length? Short sleeve, long sleeve, no sleeve, Long sleeve add $5.00
4. What size? Male or Female Size, and gender.

"Eligible" is misspelled on the jersey.

Got the $73 for long sleeve Elevate.
Do I need to add a fee or shipping to west coast or any other cost?

Thanks.


I have not commented on the words, and maybe it's late in the game, BUT as a suggestion = maybe replace Medicare Eligible

That sounds like a good idea.

I hope we get more people interested. I thought it would go a lot faster than it has.

@SammyJ -
clarify something for me please
does the order have to be 10 jerseys in any of the stated options?
or
10 jerseys the same?

because, I NEED a 65+ jersey
AND will take short sleeve, if necessary.

On at least 3 occasions I pestered the guy nice enough to do the 50+ jersey, with a request to simply swap 65 for 50.
Only to be told it was not doable.
Maybe even proposed a wool 65+ jersey,

If the order stalls at 9, maybe I need long and short sleeves.

$68 short or $73 for long - that's the total price, or a few bucks more for shipping?

We used the Flat Rate tyvek envelopes from USPS for the 50+ group buys in the past. It saved us some pennies and never had anything damaged or lost in any of the ones I managed. With the Flat Rate program for USPS, we could build in the shipping cost to the quoted prices. With having several different jerseys, LS, SS, club cut, racer cut, arm warmers, hats, tights and three different shorts, it made shipping much simpler. Its amazing how much kit you can manage to work into one of those tyvek envelopes. I found that even the international orders were simpler and less costly with USPS Flat Rate, as opposed to UPS or FedEX.

If you need any information on how things went for me or Curtis, just drop me a PM.

Best wishes on the buy, nice looking jersey design there.

I did some clothing for a Moto Guzzi group years ago and also found that bags are considerably less postage than any box. Can't recall where I got them but I bought about 100 poly shipping bags for for like 10 bucks. Most of what I shipped was tee shirts but also some hoodies and they fit in the bags fine.

Whatever works for SammyJ , the USPS bags are free at any post office, and out of their mailing options they are the least expensive. I fit as many as five items in a tyvek envelope when the last 50+ kit sale was sent out. Just a suggestion for his consideration.

GLWTS.

<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Nice sportswear, and the price was affordable, I was looking for something of a sort, and found a few interesting ones on Amazon, but the price was much expensive. Recently a friend of mine recommended me compression shorts for men, and I also found a few nice t-shirts on their site. Their prices are good enough, and I`m thinking of buying it. Does anyone know anything about this shop and their sportswear quality?

Sammy was willing to buy 4 himself, still fell short of 10.

I'm waiting for the 'Cycling at 70' order.
Or will do a wool jersey, 1 off from: www.oregoncyclewear.com
They have been very good in the past.
