It has to be apparel's fabric, fit & message it carries. For example, I have a long sleeve cycling jersey from the Alps & Andes cycling blog merch line (http://www.alpsandes.com/posts); ordered it because I truly enjoyed reading his blogs about Colombian cycling, quality content.

size and fit is a huuuuge factor due to my slim body and I love a good middle-way between a relaxed fit and a tight fit

Thank you Zviedrs for stopping by and give the kind comment. I totally agree for the fabric and fit, The fabric usually over 70% determine how the product will perform. And size fit is also very important. I do really appreciate you point out the story behind or with the products, it is a great idea to share and make cyclist feel more trust in the brand!

Hi ManBearPig, thanks for stopping by and give the kind comment, so you prefer design and size fit more, Usually road bike designs are with bright and high visible colors, I am sure you mean this, Big Grin For sure, for the same quality, if we could purchased it at lower cost, would be the best.

Hi JoJoJo, I understand, the slim body is hard to buy suitable size just like the bigger size. So sometimes you might want to customize. I believe this is also a reason you asked for customize right? Wink
