Masi jersey design update

After some feedback in the comments here and on the company blog- as well as all the emails I have gotten- we have come up with some "tweaks" of the original designs. They're not written into the poll (yet), so leave a comment if you have one!
A2- Removed the collegiate "M".


A3- Removed the collegiate "M" and the rectangle from the front artwork and moved off center.


B2- Removed collegiate "M" from the back.


C2- Removed the collegiate "M" and the rectangle from the front artwork and moved off center.


C3- Removed the collegiate "M".

The tweaks are subtle, but feel free to share your thoughts as always- they have lead to what you see here now.

Thanks!

Tim

I like the changes. My vote still goes with the latest "A" design; "D" and "C" after that.

I'm not sure about the Box with the logo in it.
And those horizontal strip make my but look big.

Awesome, Tim. I like them all. Much improved. I like the second red jersey with the off centered Masi logo on the front. I also like the MASI name on the back. As a former graphic designer, they are really sharp and eye-catching. Well done. Now, when can we buy them????? Next week?!!! ;)

Jammy said...

I definitely prefer the designs without the large M on the back. Much more professional looking.

My picks are A3 first, then B2

Dan O said...

The red jersey looks great.

How about some black arm warmers with white Masi lettering to go with it?

Kris Hoet said...

Red jerseys still coolest - and like the 2nd version over the 1st one.

Tim,
What happened to the vertical stripe? It was my favorite and (most importantly) led the pack in voting?
It was such a classy take on the traditional horizontal look that we see so often.

Anon (8:31AM)- Never fear it is still in the running and still leading. I should have been more clear; the designs shown here are just the revisions/ tweaks of the original designs. A - E are all still in the running, nobody has yet been eliminated and thrown off the island.

We have a winner!

Drum roll please - C2

as much as i like most of the designs in general , i'm a little worried about the heavy emphasis on the world bands on the shirt , ok i might be old school but in 20 years of riding i have managed to avoid the mortal sin of wearing the colours without actually being a world champion.Goes without saying the wearing the tricolore or stars and stripes is fine.

A3 and C2 wuld look great with the vertical stripes. Love the designs. Not too fond of the box on the front, but everyone has their own taste. I like the changes with the logos (back). Will you have a couple different designs?

Mark Webster said...

Tim- a lot of critiques on the board. Just wanna say, nice job! The Jerseys look cool and I know you put a ton of time into the designs.

Keep up the good work.

With that said, hurry up and print 'em already!!!!! It getting warm and epic rides are waiting!!!! ;)

I would like to place my Masi Kit order for A3! A size "M" please. Also, any matching socks????

Love the jerseys, but I'd prefer a tri colour (Italian heritige and all) before World champ stripes, even if they do add colour.

John said...

B2 then A2 for me! Great job, thanks for all the hard work

John said...

B2 and A2 are my choices. Thanks for all the hard work.

PU300 said...

A2 and B2 look the best to me... however I like the rectangle in the center of the chest.

When will these be available to purchase?

This room make is too complicated:
The style of looking >STRAIGHT< at a MASI headset tube.
Be it the headbadge, or decal.
~~~that alone, be the crown. As that be all that is needed.~~~

Maybe I'm too late, but I really like B2.

Would go well with my Campy equipped Speciale Carbon - the last year white one. Love that bike.

Lotus M50 said...

what happened to the version with the vertical stripes down the front and the back? I liked that one the best. These with the horizontal stripes across the chest are not as nice as the earlier design.

Tim Jackson said...

We've been selling the vertical design for months now, almost a year... so your choice was the winner!

Sergio said...

Id like to purchase a jersey. How can I go about this??? I love my Masi and enjoy owning a bike that not other people have. I live in South Florida. I really want a Masi Jersey. It is a shame they dont sell them on their site.

Tim Jackson said...

Sergio- you can purchase the jerseys through any local Masi (or Haro) retailer, or on our website. The webstore does not currently show the jerseys in stock- but we do have them now. We'll get you "covered"!
