Yep. Got 'em Thursday. Packed and shipped on Friday!

I'd better be seeing more photos this time around.
Other than the US, I'm shipping to Canada, England and Australia.

I did make a minor change for the Australia jersey. I started thinking "Will we be able to read it if i ship it down there?" so I made this minor adjustment.

You're dead if you did

Be interesting to see who I get mine ahead of. Is mine the furthest away from 'home base'?

Should be sending this one out to the MTBer's. we spend most of our time upside down.

Great news and thanks for your efforts.

You've certainly gone beyond the call of duty in your efforts in getting two shipments out. Even though I didn't get one (because they are red) I still admired all the work you put in. From the feedback I've seen, you've made a lot of people happy.

Got mine today. Thanks for getting these done and out the door so quickly. I probably should have ordered a Large instead of a medium but hopefully after I lose some weight next spring it might fit.......

Will get some pics someday.....

Right on - I'll be waiting by the mail box, hopefully the mail man won't think I'm a stalker.

Thanks for all your efforts and I'll send a pic from the great (soon to be) white north in the near future.

Got mine today!

A Club Cut Large fit my size 40 Regular bod perfectly!

Thanks very much for all of your efforts!

I'm hoping there will be demand for a "60 Plus" silver edition.

Both jerseys (one short sleeve, one long sleeve) arrived today. I'll try to go for a spin this weekend and post a photo. Thanks Curtis for all your hard work!

P.S. Although I forgot to ask before I placed my order, I believe this manufacturer (champion system) offers both 3/4 (default) and full-length zipper options on its jerseys

"Elvis is in the building..." and he WOULD be wearing this jersey!!! Look great, and will make me keep the weight off during the off season (Race Cut MED.) Fits well now, but too much turkey and we got problems!

Got the Long sleeve in the post today when I got home about an hour ago- Colour is better than I thought it would be and the Club cut fits me perfectly. Not working Saturday so down to the Seafront for a capuchino and the Ritual spilling of pie over the front.

Many thanks

P.S.

Wife has just asked if she can borrow it as The paunch looks smaller in it.

The jerseys were a special order custom "build" paid for in advance.
I messed up the order and have 1 extra Large, Race Cut.
I'd love to reclaim the $$, so it wouldbe the same price as everyone else paid: $60
PM me if interested.

I ordered 2 jerseys:
-one medium short sleeve club
-one large short sleeve club

I slipped the medium on to check size and it's a bit small for me.

So I'm willing to part with the medium if anyone's interested.

PM me.

So after soliciting orders and coordinating two custom orders and shipments, are you all through now cccorlew?

This has been one of the longest running custom clothing orders I've ever seen.
