Schmunkee, you do a brilliant job with the task of getting us all kitted out! 

I agree, well said

On another note, my previous post on kit is now sold.

Really, I'm surprised they fit someone who's 6'4" and 20 stone  

It's a pressie for Partner in Crime

According to LG sizing chart, I'll need a M tank top please.

That doesn't explain my current wardrobe, does it?

Damn - blown my cover.

Nursie, Schmunks can get Pirate shorts as well if you would like some

You can find a picture of a Pirate wearing some at the rear of this lot

Or if you have Holg's book I'm sure there's a picture of him, Dave, Viking and Min modelling some!

Actually, I'll just stick with a M tank top for now, thanks.

( Nothing to do with the models!!)

I've got the pirate monaco and shorts on (they are the old style shorts though) the new ones are much nicer but the same design

Is that Kanga wearing Hot pants at the back??...they look very short.

Don't forget that the monaco is a different fit from the cycle tops/jackets. Rafi's link expains it a bit more.

Cycle tops & jackets = snug but nice. Monaco = Matt Lucas only gay in the village

Ok, I'm loving the whole pirate thing and I want in ... I'd love to do the meeting and cheering stuff, but restricted with family commitments at the moment, but they're getting older by the day ...!

Deffo IM at some point, and Ripon Tri (Oly) in July (first). So would certainly be interested in a bit of the clingy, fly-attracting yellow ... but can't quite match the list to the website.

The website talks about 'Elite', 'Performance - Delfino' and 'Sport', but on here there are cycle tops, jackets, gilets, tanks and monacos. I'm on a steep learning curve here - I know what OW and OP and Oly is now, but haven't mastered the whole clothing dialect yet.

Excuse me for being a numpty and a bit particular about styles, but I'm no model and rarely buy without trying - especially if it isn't going to leave much to the imagination as with lycra.

Can someone advise about which Louis Garneau items these are, please?

Schmunkee - thanks for sorting out kit for everyone. I've read the posts about initiations / introductions / open doors and the like, and so now I've introduced myself - [declares "aaarrgh" in a pilate tone ....]

Hey Brit,

Monaco = sleeveless tri-top, cycle top and cycle jacket speak for themselves and Tanks are what fish live in.

Your time seems restrcited but if you want to try on the kit you need to find a race with Pirates in and ask to try. Although Evans have started stocking LG kit so trying a bike top there for size is an option.

06/06/2012 at 05:58

Oh yes and what is a pilate tone?.......
