Its good to see so many sides to a discussion, and that's what it is when all is said and done.
I still wear the Postal Jersey when I ride alone. I rarely ride in a group, but the several times I have since the original post I wear standard cycling jerseys; colorful but with no adverts, this even though the men and women I ride with said they had no problem with it at all... period...
One guy in the group said, he would wear a vibrator strapped to the top of his helmet with a little cowboy hat on it if it made him feel better about riding and it dawned on me that feeling good about riding and riding to feel good were all that really mattered.
If there is no harm done, and someone calls you out because they feel "insulted" or because they think you look "funny" then they're the source and cause of harm, not you in your Jersey...
Have a good one all!
In America, it is not unusual to see someone wearing a jersey from their favorite sports team (baseball, basketball, football, ice hockey) with their favorite player's name blazoned across the back.
Do Brits wear Manchester United jerseys with a player's name? (Manchester United is the only Brit team that I know.)
Do New Zealanders wear the All Black's jersey?
Do the South Africans wear their favorite Cricket team jersey? (What other sports do they play down there?)
Could it be that what's "cool" for one nationality is considered "nerdy" for another?
