Jerseys(11 posts)

I was wondering if there are any major differences between men and women's jerseys. It seems that there is a much better selection of men's jerseys that are not pink or purple...are there any women out there that wear men's gear? Thoughts?

I like a snug fit, and I'm not large enough to fit a men's small, so I stick with the women's stuff. Also, I have a short torso, and I'm afraid men's jerseys might be longer than my shorts. LOL!

Most of my jerseys are solid colors-- none are pink or purple! None have flowers either, yech. My favorite jersey has a cool red dragon print and is cut very well. I don't like replica jerseys. Too busy for me. I think Primal Wear has nifty designs. I'm on the lookout for one that really speaks to me.

Other men's gear... I haven't tried men's shorts yet. I use men's and women's saddles. I use women's gloves because my palms are narrow. I currently wear women's shoes, but will buy whatever fits me well for my next pair.

I'm curious about that red dragon print jersey...may I ask wear you got it and who made it? I really like dragons and would love to find a jersey that has them on it! TIA!

It's a Shebeest that I picked up last summer at LBS. It was part of the "Chinois" collection. I also got a pair of velvet armwarmers with the same dragon print in grey over the winter.

I've been wondering about the difference'll be interesting to see what others have to say. My LBS has a horrible selection of women's clothing, so most of my cycling gear has been mail-ordered off the web. Here are a couple of websites with non-pink, non-purple, non-flowered jerseys for women:

Hope this helps!

Nothing wrong with pink jerseys, just not my favorite color. Sorry if I offended you, it wasn't intentional.

Ah, he was having a little bit of fun with you. Ullrich is a racer - the pink jersey is awarded in racing.
