    SadieKate:

    I have the Women's Marmite jersey and the Training Jacket (unisex sizing).
    The jersey is well made and fits well (and gets a lot of attention on the road from other riders).
    I was attracted to their jerseys because of the lovely (non-flowered) graphics that seemed to only be available in men's jerseys.
    Can't remember exactly what the shipping was, but I guess I didn't think it was outrageous or I wouldn't have ordered. And it arrived within 5 days.

    ccnyc, thanks. There's some really fun stuff on there. If Terry comes out with little darling flowered stuff again this fall, I'm going to gag.

    LOL - glad Im not the only one that looks at those flowers and shivers.

    Now if that other jersey said Vegemite I would be ordering as we speak/type.

    Foska have a winter sale on. The jackets are reduced.

    Now, how do I justify this? And do I get a Welsh one or go for the full Marmite? Quite a few of the jackets are in a women's cut which makes resistance even harder.

    Kewell jerseys... but... I have to say it...

    Vegemite! Where are the vegemite jerseys?
    And why endorse Marmite when Vegemite is so much smoother and tastier???

    Mmmmm.... vegemite and cheese on fresh white bread... vegemite on crispbreads... vegemite on malt grain toast with melted butter... mmmm... vegemite....

    I think Vegemite looses its flavour when transported to the Northern hemisphere. A bit like Guiness which, I am told, has to be drunk in Dublin for the true flavour (best use for Guiness as far as I am concerned is in chocolate cake).

    They do a NZ flag road jersey although there is no matching jacket.

    Heh, I wonder if Nutella is banned in DK as well. That's where I first tried it, before it showed up in the US

    I'm in the "tried it, hated it" category. My British father loves the stuff. My mom and I don't see how it can be classified as food.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    I saw someone riding in one of the Foska bones jerseys yesterday, it looked great!

    Marmite lover here. Though I should confess that a friend bought me a bar of marmite flavoured chocolate for Christmas and I've yet to be desperate enough to open it. It's the idea of the aftertaste that bothers me.
