I have looked online but seem to have expensive Team GB ones, wanting to run a race abroad and would be nice to run in UK colours. Anyone know if any running shops specialise in these.

Most of us have FOSKA vests. Very good quality and last a long time.

If anyone knows of a GB shirt (with arms) thats of a tech tee quality - please post a link here. I love my foska vest but would love something with arms.

Those vests are lovely! Emmy, what's the women's sizing like? I know there's a size chart but it looks pretty generic and often things are larger than they claim.

"often things are larger than they claim."


not in men's sizing.

Literatin - It's hard for me to tell as i've lost quite a bit of weight. I thought it came up a little large for women. I had a medium and it was big enough for me to wear with a tshirt underneath.

Thanks! Though it looks like I'll have to wait for them to restock the nicest ones anyway.

Unless you have qualified as a GB athlete I think it's a bit cheeky to run in a GB vest myself.

Elizabeth - have you seen the Foska shirts? or do you run regularly abroad and know what its like to have a fellow brit come up to you and offer support? It's really encouraging.

 If you find it cheeky - can you explain to me what is the difference between an Adidas GB vest (or any gb vest for that matter) and a football shirt?

Love the Wallace & Gromit one

ED4 -- I'd assume that the OP meant GB "replica" vest.

I was planning to get a colman's mustard one or the London A-Z.

15/10/2013 at 14:42

are you a genuine colman's mustard though?

a bit cheeky if you are not.

Skotty - What about if I try to eat enough of it?

15/10/2013 at 15:01

I actually like the Irn Bru one but ruled it out as it'd be cheeky to wear it if not Scottish!

15/10/2013 at 15:01

Also I am not made of real girders.

non Scot wearing Irn Bru top would be a bit cheeky.

a bit like wearing a kilt.

15/10/2013 at 15:09

Does that mean you can't wear the Wallace and Grommit one if you're not from Yorkshire?

15/10/2013 at 15:18

Depends on your body % Wensleydale composition.

ED4 -- Now see what you started!!!
