The other alternative is to just hang to your old Jerseys for 20 years until they become 'vintage' :D

Theres also torm.cc which are a bit old school. I bought one to try out - the sizing is generous but I like the sprotswool a lot so I just bought another. They are bloody cheap, incredibly comfortable and a I like the look. Will see how they well they last.

I'm embarrased to say I still have (and wear) jerseys from the 80s... They look pretty dated now - maybe i could sell them for a motza! :lol:

Don't be embarrassed; wear them with pride! 8) I wear a Hitachi s/s in summer and a Systeme U l/s in winter. :D

Almost all my jerseys are 'vintage'.

I have a team 7-up jersey from 1992, Banesto yellow jersey from 1994 and a generic Time long-sleeve jersey from about 1995.

It's funny how jerseys just don't wear out. Knicks on the other hand.....

I think they've been washed and hung out over a thousand times. Trouble is, even despite washing, within 5 mins of putting them on and riding again, they seem a bit on the nose. dunno if its just old stinkyness, (hopefully) not lack of personal hygiene :oops: :lol: :lol: but they just aren't as fresh as the newer wick-the-sweat-away materials.

Try Oregon Cyclewear - well made merino jerseys, and not expensive.
