I was in Paris over the weekend, a short trip from London and posted some pictures in the gallery section.

those kits are new looking to me? When did they break those out? What's the story?

They are the original unifirms from the first year Postal entered the Tour. Each of the Posties was fined 200 francs.

From www.velonews.com

Armstrong and his eight U.S. Postal teammates were fined 200 Swiss francs each and the team was fined 4500 Swiss francs Sunday because they rode with different jerseys - bearing the old U.S. Postal Department logo - for the final stage. Riders are not allowed to change out of their normal team jerseys, but the team defied the rules to wear the jerseys in honor of the Tour's 100th-anniverary celebration.

You think the jersey manufacturer had something to do with the decision? These throwback replicas will be on sale immediately, if they are not already. It was a cool-looking kit but I'm jaded from those throwback baseball games orchestrated by MLB to sell more hats and jerseys, etc. You want to go with a throwback? Wear wool. That goes for pro cycling AND baseball.
