some more nonsense about shirts

    Reckoned the official artwork for this year's Giro d'Italia was quite natty and decided to have a
    look at www.giroditaliastore.it to see if there was a t-shirt with the design.

    Yes, and a mere 10 Euro :) Shipping to Scotland, though, is 53 Euro :-(

    Of course, I could just get it sent to a friend in England because the shipping would then come down
    to paltry 28 Euro.

    This is apparently the courier cost for a package up to 10kg but as the most expensive (and
    presumably the heaviest) item on the site is a jacket at 60 Euro, it begs 2 questions

    1) Are there enough crazed obsessives out there to support a system which requires buying 9.99kg of
    memorabilia to justify the shipping cost?

    or

    2) Do the Italians have some grudge against ALL postal services? (Incidentally, shipping to the U.S
    is 115 Euro)
