Ho! Ho! Ho! As far as the commercialization of Christmas goes, I scored! My first wool jersey, oh boy!
It’s a duplicate of Eddy Merckx‘s Molteni jersey and that white will undoubtedly look smashing on me mid-summer with a bit of cycling tan.
Though there is a slight problem: I look like an uncooked bratwurst in it.
Jerseys tend to run small. While the shoulders seem tight and right, the belly is more “Fat Eddy” than “Fast Eddy”. Oh the cruelness of Belgian beer! I already have one jersey I only get to wear in August and September, so it seems like returning it would be prudent and I could use it now. However, hanging it like art on the bedroom wall seems like the best inspiration for dieting and the indoor trainer ever devised, even better than looking at my too-tight blue jeans.
Oh, I can’t wait to try it out! It is swell.
I just happened on your blog and am cracking up about your bratwurst jersey. I was given an incredibly stylish, beautiful shirt that is “one size fits all”. Meaning, it is made of spandex, soemthing an italian model would wear, with cool ribbing patterns in it. At first I wasnt sure about it, I had visions of looking like a blue seal in it. But I put it on and wow, I look like an italian model…except for the blonde hair. Good thing I lost weight recently. One size fits all means, if you are bigger than a size 6, dont even try it. Be grateful you are a man. Finding a proper bra for a skintight shirt (I am a woman) is really a tedious thing. I did it though. It was like figuring out a science experiment or something. Enjoy your wool jersey. If you are in Boston (I couldnt figure your exact whereabouts), then you will need it!
