    THE COMMODORE:but I dislike the fat kid


    What did I ever do to you?
  2.  
    THE COMMODORE:I like the one on the right, but I dislike the fat kid and I absolutely loathe "haters gonna hate." I will not wear anything that says that on it.


    I would like the "team" and "bike" to just be written normally, not slanted.

    also, baby turtle poking out of jersey pocket?i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
  3.  
    MickMeUpButtercup:whats the preference



    any comments?


    I also prefer the one on the right. I love the fat kid, and you don't even need "Haters gonna hate". Also, I would center "Team" and "Bike" more on the sign.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    custom turtle: that's the jersey's brand logo. www.champ-sys.com
    "team" and "bike" off center: i was going for an artsy logo type thing, it helps steer the reader across the jersey heh. im gonna leave it because it just doesnt look right with them centered, especially with the shoulder piece

    i'm gonna take the fat kid out for joe's preference (most likely), he is one of the founders of the team after all so he has some decision makin weight ;]somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    no, I'm suggesting you ADD a baby turtle

    also i really hate the team/slow/bike placement on the back

    and i assume it's sublimation, not printing, so plaid is easyi mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    ohhhh. turtle is oddly relevant. perhaps

    got any other suggestions for the placement? (in addition to your previous one)
    ..should it not be that prominent? is it too big/small? is the concept silly/would it become silly over time?
    should the back have more/less design?
    should i make the whole back a turtle shell? ;]somebody turn the lights off on this place already.
  7.  
    i really like the idea of whole back as turtle shell, but i think it would require a full design overhaul to be coherent - though you could still "hang" that yellow slow sign onto the shell

    mini-idea: three back pockets = turtle / snail / molasses with iciclesi mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    hahahah, there's so much potential there. i think im going to have to do an overhaul just to see what else is possible and liked

    i also had an idea:
    back pockets are different plaid designs
    left sleeve black with yellow slow traffic sign
    right sleeve white with cat6 symbol in a circyl
    argyle "sweater vest" front that fades going over the shoulders with suspenders with pennyfarthings on them wrapping all the way around
    same team slow bike chest piece

    it'd be goofy as hell but with the right colors i think it could be cool lookingsomebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    womp. it's tough designing something for a group of people when you're on the other side of the world and have no other way of discussing what they'd like on the product. i'll need them to buy at least 10 total if it's going to be able to be made, so i need input and some kind of a jumping off point.

    i need to stop being so awesome at designing shit.

    by the way, this is all vector formatted rather than raster, even the fat kid and the cat, that shit took forever to remake with the damn little pen tool.

    im stuck on what to do with the back that would work with the front though.
    the best ive got is to put a purple argyle diamond on the middle pocket, and a pink and blue one on the left and right pockets. but as for the rest of the space im strikin out.
    that or a silhouette of the boston skyline across the pockets
    edit: or a big..

    needs more snails!

    city skyline at sunset (pink/purple/black) with a snail moon!

    also this is a "hey maybe we could do this" not a "i hate" but I think T/S/B in the yellow argyles would look nicer without the eam/low/ikei mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
  10.  
    I still don't like cat 6. I wasn't going to say it again, but I would literally cover it up with a patch. I don't really want to be associated with the type of people who "race" me on the way to work, by passing me at speed while I'm stopped, and cutting me off wildly, and working REEEEEELY hard to pass me just cause I'm a girl, and then going super slow once they have.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    sorry marianna but im gonna leave the cat 6, there's other folks, including myself, who enjoy it for the irony of it not being a literal race category and it just being folks who ride their bikes; more aside from it being a derogatory label for idiot commuters. it's really meant to be ironic rather than an associative label.

    maybe ill put a big snail crawling across the tops of the pockets and one crawling up the side of the SLOW sign, i do like the pink skyline idea.
    and i agree the eam/low/ike are a stretch, i just figured it'd be better to have it and then remove it than leave it out.

    Sean, I say we leave off the Cat 6 and save it for jersey #2. I think it makes this one too busy anyway and leaving the cat 6 logo for the arm doesn't quite do it justice when it should be front and center if it's done right (not to mention that the red clashes with this color scheme). Again, there's no reason to throw every good idea into this one jersey. I stand with Marianna, even though it's for different reasons.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    eh..i politely disagree with it making it busy as it'll be on the outside of a plain color sleeve (and have you seen jerseys with sponsor labels on them before? shit aint pretty), and the red works with the black, but ok. (congrats marianna haha). im not really thinkin toward a jersey #2 though so i guess that's why i wanted it on now.




    OPINIONS WANTED ON:
    A - Back Designs
    1 -continuing with the argyle on the back to make it a full sweater vest style
    2 -bare black back with boston skyline on the pockets in pink or purple
    a -put a big (simple 3-tone stencil style) snail somewhere on the back, maybe crawling across the pockets
    3 -a very big (also simple 3-tone stencil style) one-handed thumbs up

    B - Sleeve Redesign to Omit Cat 6
    1 -pink with the below posted skull and bones pattern
    2 -bare black to complete the sweater vest style
    3 -a snail (aforementioned stencil style)

    C - Random
    1 -put a snail crawling up the edge of the SLOW sign
    2 -change the colors of the T S B argyles to something else
    a -could also move the T S B argyles over to be centered on the chest
    3 -omit the eam/low/ike from the T S B argyles

    I like A 2a & 3, I am a little anti-all-black-back for visibility reasons

    I like B 3, B1 is okay (overdone, IMO), but i really like the asymmetrical sleeves - i don't want to look too dignified here.

    C1 no opinion, C2 I like that it matches the road sign, C2a zipper concern?, C3 yes plzi mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
