Would you wear This

Postby Apple » Fri Dec 16, 2011 6:07 am

I think I have lost my mind.
I woke up this morning and found an order confirmation for this.

and this
Image
All I remember is having a nice dinner and a bottle of Mumm last night. I do remember going on the computer before going to bed and looking at cycling clothes.
Tell me the truth, would any of you girls wear that, or should I just wear it for Christmas rides.
It will be here before our ride on the 2nd of Jan. :shock: Ride away if you think I would look like a Christmas tree.

Even a woman couldn't answer the question, and no man is going to risk it either.

You might as well ask "Hey, honey, will my bum look fat in this ?" ?

If I say "no", you'll never know if I'm just being polite or really mean it :) :)

Have a happy holiday season...

Cheers

Arm warrmers are a little over the top. White in the knicks is at least placed with some sense of modesty.

Just do it, no excuse for a SMIDSY in that kit :wink:

:D Thanks, but it was too late, it was confirmed as well as sent :shock:, TE must have been very excited that someone actually ordered it, so they packed it and sent it ASAP, just encase I change my mind.
I am sure I was the only one who ordered this. :oops:
Well I could wear the pants with a white top and the top with black shorts. What do you think. :?
Oh and Christine Tham would love the arm warmers. :mrgreen:

If they're arm warmers that's ok. I'd ditch them. The top would be fine with a pair of plain black knicks. I don't thi k it's that bad. The shorts I could do without.

I love the cornflakes jersey. Yum yum.

As I said, Christine would love the arm warmers, she would dye them pink and would be happy. :mrgreen:

Haha each to their own :) the shorts would probably be good with a plain top. Are you banned from drinking and online shopping from now on? Hehe

LOL, No, never banned when it comes to great French Champagne, unfortunately I spend most of my time buying things online, it feels like presents when they arrive.
you know " Parcel at the door, you get all excited,” what for me”, you sort of forget that you paid for it, till it comes up on credit card

Yep
