The Assos SL Sleeveless Jersey is probably the most expensive of its
kind, so must be the best:
http://www.competitivecyclist.com/r...s-series-sl-sleeveless-jersey-485_4_TRUE.html

You can't road race with it.

Why do they not allow people to race in sleeveless jerseys?

Same reason racing rules required 'white sox over the ankle' for many
years; Caprice and arbitrary application of authority. See also 'helmet
rule', 'doping rule', 'bike weight rule', etc.

Hey Sparky, a few observations:
1). You're a ******. Maybe not a particularly insightful
observation, but I thought we should get it out of the way up front.
2). People that wear flip flops while riding to the beach wear
shirts, usually of the T or wife beater variety. Most people wear
jerseys.
3). I have no idea what you mean by best. When you say best do you
mean everyone agrees they're the best, best value, best fit, best
looking or what?
4). Racing isn't touring, but I'm sure you could pick up a nifty USPS
LANCE jersey on eBay and be the absolute coolest guy in the sag wagon
either way!

Every once in a while I see on TV that mad multi-day running marathon
in Morocco or wherever, and wonder why none of the competitors wears
sandals and flowing garb. It just seems the obvious choice,
particularly when you see what sort of suffering culls the field.

Running on sandals? You gotta be kidding.

They run in sand across the Sahara, and it's a constant (losing)
battle to keep sand out of their socks and shoes. They use silly
gaiters that don't work, and have huge problems with sores. Sandals at
least drain sand by themselves. With enough practice to get your feet
toughened up and ready for the abrasive sand, I'm sure sandals would
be preferable for at least the sandy sections.

A while back, I thought it was a Mexican Indian tribe that was
cleaning up all these events, except that they were under the
exclusive care of some unscrupulous guy.
Apparently, they are the Tarahumara and do race in sandals:

They apparently never made it to Morocco.

You can in Colorado:

11.3.1 All riders must wear jerseys. Sleeveless jerseys are permitted.
All riders must wear cycling shorts. No article of clothing may
be worn that serves solely an aerodynamic purpose.

Nashbar sells a very good one that's on sale for $15 now:

The Nashbar one goes to XXXL for $15. That's a lot of material for the
money.

Hi, just to clarify, I did not specify sleeveless jerseys, I just stated the
best one's considering materials, etc, short sleeves are fine too!

There was an article in Sports Illustrated a bunch of years ago about
a runner who ran a deer to ground. The deer would bolt and then stop
when it thought it was out of range, wait until the runner got too
close, then take off again. The runner had an advantage in being able
to read the terrain better and would take a more efficient route which
helped offset the speed imbalance. Eventually endurance won out over
fleetness of foot, and the runner was able to walk up to the exhausted
deer and touch it, symbolizing a kill.

I think that's how the Grand Tours should be run.

North American Native Americans in the Northeast played baggataway,
which evolved (devolved) into lacrosse. The original game would go on
for days, have several hundred players per side, goals that were miles
apart, deaths were not uncommon and the game was a preparation, or
avoidance of, war.

I think that's how the Grand Tours should be run. If the Lanterne
Rouge was killed each day, and nobody could DNS or DNF, I think the
riding speed would pick up quite a bit. See? No need for dope at
all! Think of it as Cy-culling. ;)

That's it, Colorado is on my list. What next, TTs with swim and run
stages?

It's a slippery slope!

You did specifically say that you wanted the best shirt for hot
weather. If you have a sleeve fetish you should have said so up front
and maybe have taken this over to rec.bicycles.soc.
