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.

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

I feel I should apologise for sending this thread off on a tangent for the last few pages.

I realise I'm taking my life in my hands here, but I've added my name to the list so now I'm just going to hide in a corner and pray that I've not screwed it up.

FF - Evans, great idea, thanks for that. I'll go along this week sometime. Sounds like no one else is doing the Ripon tri anyway (no pirates, I mean) so I won't fret about having 'the look' for me first event. Might be a bit pretentious anyway, especially if I'm last out of the water ...!

and M...eldy - ????

Nurse - there'll be no hiding in a corner in yellow!!

You have indeed taken a huge risk, especially as it wasn't even necessary........

Schmunkee - The List Fairy wrote (see)

List is too bulky now, so please just post what kit you would like and I will add you to my list

This is from about 5 pages back....but don't worry, I think Schmunkee is too busy having a nervous breakdown over her Pirate PArty list on another thread!!

Raf - you are proving to be a very worthy apprentice
06/06/2012 at 12:59

Hiya....please may I order a Pirates Race Vest - is that a Gilet or Monaco - is the monaco a tee shirt ? ...........I posted some notes a few weeks ago and was advised to offer thorntons - have got 2 triathlons coming up and have saved up to buy some thorntons as well - in case these are needed to barter with !!??

Richard - I seem to remember you were going to change your name - best be quick before its changed for you

As for Monacos etc - its all a little confusing, but if you follow the link at the top of the previous page, the hansom chap at the front is wearing a Monaco - which is a fancy name for a Tri top. 3/4 zip down the front and a pocket at the back big enough for a bottle of beer (or a couple of gels).

Schmunkee - that's me been nice to two people in a row - can I stop now??

06/06/2012 at 16:39

Hiya....thank you for the kind advice.........please could I be added to the list for a Monaco - do I need to do that myself ? ..............or is this posting enough ?............ I am small normally but can't get in to the size chart to check.....Rafikid - yes you are right - I have been focussing too much on training and not enough on changing my name - thinking hard now and will post before end of today - a name change !!

06/06/2012 at 17:10

Name changed - can't seem to upload pic at moment !
