I am looking to get cool, custom wool jerseys made with a team logo. I am not looking for coolmax (though modern wool like Icebreaker would be fine). Anyone know who does this?

Also want custom gloves.

I want to like Portland Cycle wear....

But I bought one that shrank-up horribly despite proper care. His response was to sell me another for $50, I didn't jump on that. They look cool though, maybe they changed construction. I think Swobo does custom, havent heard of gloves though and since I just picked up a Swobo SS jersey yesterday, can't comment on durability.

Look someplace other than Portland Cycle wear. The "service" there is less than exlempary. IF you do some googleing on them, you'll find threads from this site and others with plenty of evidence.

You know, that being said, I do have a pair of their knickers that I DO like, the product is ok, its the service that sucks.

I've heard the same thing about Portland Cyclewear on the iBob forum. People mentioned wanting custom screening and found that the jerseys stretched a huge amount over a short period of time.

Do a search on the iBob list to find out what some of the options are. They are fashion nuts over there and I distinctly remember some good recommendations.

Ibex used to do custom work and may still when I talked with them a few years back. I think a lot of it comes down to how much you want to spend. I know some really good European makers, but you're looking at well over $100 wholesale per jersey.
