Figured that now would be a good time to put this out there, since we are all in the final pushes of getting our events coordinated for 2015. I've long been thinking about getting custom wool jerseys made with the Cranksgiving logo, for organizers to wear year after year. They would be for 2016 and onwards.
Probably a seasonably-appropriate long sleeve, with the 'updated' Cranksgiving script logo in the center on front and back.
I've written an inquiry to Woolistic
, as they do really nice chain-stitching. I have two of their jerseys they made for PA Randonneurs. However, the turnaround is absurdly long.
I've also written to Oregon Cycle Wear
. They're an attractive option because they are domestic and have no minimum order.
I'll volunteer to take the lead in getting a design mocked up and finalized, getting them ordered, etc. I can collect via PayPal from interested parties, and ship them out once they arrive.
From what I have seen other custom orders go for, they will probably run somewhere between $125-150 when all is said and done. Steeper than a synthetic jersey, but obviously way cooler.
Here is the blank jersey. Oregon Cycle Wear #8
It might also be possible to get individual jerseys made for each city (i.e. adding "Philadelphia" or "New York City", etc. in the black bar), which I think would be a great addition.
Let me know if you're interested!
