Unusual jersey...would you wear this?regulajo

I found this at lost freight store for $4.00, it is very different if not offensive. Ever seen anything like it?
wow, nocollinsc

not my style

but i will definitely give you that it is very different and almost offensive (only because of the animated penises all over the place though).

Sorry guys I'm not going to sell it. It was one of those finds you buy because you know you won't see it again. Found it at a lost freight store and there was only one of them. I don't wear it out too much, I live in SLC, Utah, a pretty conservative place...don't want to be run off the road by a soccer mom in an SUV. My brother who I ride with is embarrassed if I wear it while riding with him, but my wife thought it was hilarious.
Interesting insights into your brother & wife... :) nmPdxMark

I live in SLC too and I was just thinking about what response you would get riding through downtown on a Sunday afternoon.
For $4.00, I'd wear it...DINOSAUR

I have ungodly Performance Hawaiian jerseys and a Primal Wear snake head that I bought on sale. This jersey would be halfway normal for me, I like it. No one can really see what it says when you ride anyway, only the pattern and color matters. It would be a good training jersey.

re: NoSteveS

No, this jersey is just a bit too proud of it's crudity for me to wear, even if they have a generally positive intent.

but spelt W< came from Germany. They are a fashion house/label. and i have never seen them do any cycling or sports apparel. all their stuff is super loud and with ridiculously wild graphics.

one of their founding designers Dik Birksbikkembe (a belgian) went on to start a new label under his own name. W< (wild & lethal trash) was at its biggest in the early 90's and by the end of the decade and now is cinsidered just really cheezy. their intentions of creating utulity clothes that are bright and fairly priced was cool for a minute and now only hopeless fashionista's and japanese are their biggest market - all their ranges are small and fairly unique.

be prepared for flash

as a cycling garment it is pretty unique and ive never seen another like it. i dig it but wouldnt wear it.

Spirito, Thanks for the info on the W< Jersey. I new the designer was from Belgium, but didn't know some of the other history. I'll try to only wear it on Hill Climb races in an attempt to get those about to pass me to be laughing too hard to do so. Some strategy ehh.

Hysterical loud graphics, very funny. I'd probably wear it
just to see what peoples reactions would be. But I'd likely
not wear it in rural Texas or somewhere like that.
