    Limited Edition Jersey Opportunity

    The Off Camber Crew has mocked up a limited edition and soon to be highly coveted cycling jersey. Official ordering information will be available in a bit. Price for the jersey is expected to be ~$68, but may be less if we get >25 orders.

    The following image is an early prototype. The actual jersey may be slightly different, as suggested the manufacture (Podiumwear, https://www.podiumwear.com/sports/cycling/) and additional feedback that may be received.

    Use the voting to indicate your interest in the jersey. This is non-binding interest at this point.


    Final version --

    I will buy two of them. One for riding in and the other for riding in when the original wears out.

    Yes. Interested, but still not sure I like the front. You'd just have to give me time to come up with money.

    How about changing the color to green and yellow?

    You can have any color you want if you want burnt orange.

    Burnt Orange is the primary color of the jersey because it has meaning. We cannot change that. I suppose we could make the entire thing burnt orange, though?

    Burnt orange seems to be a keeper for many. I actually like that it will be different from the run of the mill jersey. It also has a nice retro feel to it.


    Bethany, you can run down to your local plasma donation center and have the money in a couple of weeks. Also, if you have specific ideas on how to fix the front, feel free to share them (either here or via PM).

    I can't ride with burnt orange as a color. This town is somewhat OSU Beaver territory and I am a Duck fan. Big deal out here in Oregon.

    I bet Prefontaine would man up and not worry about the colors he was sporting

    I'm looking at fonts now. I swear my eyes are about to bleed serifs.

    Just the font bothers me. I'm no graphics expert, but a font determines the tone of what you are saying. I just figured we need something bolder with more of a statement but still simple. Not sure what options the company has for you, but I did some digging through some free fonts although this turns commercial meaning you'd have to pay for the font.

    Exaggerate Font
    Off the Drugs font
    and one else that I can't find again.

    Ultimately, I'm good with whatever is chosen. Love the idea of a jersey.

    Is this like the font set you have in mind?

    That first font that Bethany posted is a good one to go with. It has a mean vibe to it.

    I like these. They seem stronger, but sans serif. Monzie?

    Did not yet vote, as I say no option for - "Yes I'd buy one, if sized correctly".
    Love the idea for an OC Crew jersey, and am willing to pay, even though I already have a jersey that is mostly burnt orange.

    Really dislike the tan sleeves.
    Would anyone put tan cable housing on a burnt orange bike?
    Instead, how about a contrasting color instead like blue, purple, or green?
    Thanks again for taking the reins, and making this happen.

    agree with bethany about the font, and agree with kona0197 about the first of the three fonts bethany suggested. that one nails it.

    don't agree with purple or some other drastically contrasting color for the sleeves.

    I think the jersey should be more of a sick peach colour in keeping with AZs hideous new bike.

    And yes the font on the original one is shocking, not to mention the downwards angle its on, Beths first two suggestions are much better..

    but in any case im out, i dont wear burnt orange or peach, its against my ethics.

    If it was black with orange sleeves i might consider it...
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    The back is perfect, the front needs help. The club name words need to flow better. It looks too jumbled up. But, A+ for effort guys....we are getting close to perfection.

    EDIT: The sleeve color is not important to me. Whatever makes everyone else happy in sleeve color is good for me too.

    I'll take one for sure, two if necessary to meet minimum.

    Two suggestions/request though.
    How about the green rep bar be on the sleeve like military bars/ranking?

    Can we get "official parking lot poser" worked into the mix as well?

    Well, when have we ever cared about what other people think? But what about "No posers" than?
    Sorry, I really enjoyed that thread and would like to see homage paid to it.
