Where to find one? Recommendations?
As most of my races this year are going to be in Mainland Europe - I wanted to wear a shirt that can show i'm British/English to other runners out there (e.g. other Brits in the race etc). I enjoy having a chat with other Brits along the route.
I've seen one on FOSCA, the Adidas ones on Wiggle and a rather fetching one on Linky but can anyone recommend them or have another suggestion?
Ideally it should be a vest and comfortable to run in.
I bought a Maltloaf vest from the Fosca website about 18 months ago. It's very comfy to run in

Thanks Saffy. How do you find their sizing?
Thanks Saffy - I'll take that into consideration. I managed to speak with them today and they said that the mens' are generous but the women's are tailored.
@Marc - as much as I like the "official" GB vests - it doesnt scream "Britain" to me. I guess that was the major downer for me.

The "Great Britain" on the front should make it blatantly obvious, especially to fellow Brits
I got a Union Jack vest with 'GBR' on the back for around £25 from Global Gear - www.globalgear.eu Didn't wear it in before running a marathon in it and it didn't rub or chafe at all. Makes for some cracking races photos They also do St George's Cross stuff.
Do you want me to ask my club mate where he got his shorts from??
HAHA! I hadn't seen that Helen.... I think a caption competition is in order.
"Hmm... wouldn't mind a pair of those myself".
There is a time and place to check out the "talent" Mr White Vest and that is neither!
Hi all, I eventually got one from FOSKA and am very impressed with it. Quality is top notch and the size was really good. There's no issues with rubbing or riding up so a very happy customer.
