65+ Jersey

I am attempting to gage how much interest, and how many people might want to get in on a new jersey order

No, I have never done this before, but I have started making contact. Some mentioned a Medicare Eligible on the jersey SO sort of like the last jersey, but speed limit signs that read 65+ ME, and front and back with larger signs that spell out Medicare Eligible
my initial idea would mostly green, with yellow, white and black. but we could work that out if we get closer. i

I'm game! I like the old 50+ kit, but now that I'm nearing 70, the 65+ is more appropriate. Love the green/yellow color combination. The colors of two of my favorite sports teams, (Springboks and Wallabies).

I'd be in for a 75+ but there's a time limit on that.

I'd be interested in the jersey provided they are not skin tight (like cycling ones).
At 60yo a tight fitting "anything" would reveal that I indulged a little over my years....not that its a bad thing

I'll commit to a 65+ jersey. at ~$65. Maybe more for short sleeve wool.

Don't put anything on the jersey we have to explain. ME (Medicare Eligible) for example is an explanation.

Simple stuff, understood at a glance. And large enough to be seen.

Color choice is less important to me.


edit: No medical references, please. I'm not the Geritol Generation. Or the Erectile Dysfunctional Crowd.

I'd be interested as long as the cost is reasonable. And I agree that I don't want some cryptic logo on it. I bought a Tour of Sufferlandria jersey after doing it and the logo is barely recognizable, never mind that the event itself was in small letters around the collar. And honest sizing too. My ToS is an extra large, but would maybe fit someone that wears a medium. I lost 30 pounds and still couldn't wear it outside, but I guess I would appropriately use it on the trainer while doing Sufferfest videos. Club fit, not race fit is appropriate, and old fogey club fit is even better.

Good Morning all,

This is the second revision, I had one change made, NOW it time for you guys to take a look.

10 or more the cost is $68. I will supply sizing information once we get ready to order.

Take a GOOD look, anything you have to have changed, anything you want added. Remember, we have to get something everyone can be happy with.

I like the colors and the 65+ but the medicare eligible, meh ( which is spelled wrong you are missing an I or, maybe it's old folks humor that I am missing it)
How about some humor, Medicare Baby or Medicare Yay!! and a smiley face.

Thanks for doing this

I'm not liking the colors myself. We need something like "still kicking ass" on it.

Thank you SammyJ for your efforts to recognize and reward us old guys!
I would be in for a jersey with just the 65plus message. I personally do not think we need to add any other kind of message, like Medicare eligible.
Thank you again for taking this on and trying to please us all!

Edit: Old guys and old gals!
