Very nice job on the jersey....

The lettering has just a few problems though.

--The "s" in rendezvous lacks its defining forward return stroke. This would be optional in an italic but is essential in a script. An underscoring design element would seem more natural if developed from the "z". Its descender could give you a much stronger swash.

--The caps, which are more of a monoweight, have a different thick to thin ratio from the lower case.

--The slant of the characters varies over the length of the word in "Rendezvous" The slant in "Classic" is consistent though.

--The "C" and the "l" in "Classic" could use a little more space between them.

These are just a few refinements but they would make a big difference in the jersey's impact.

This is going to turn out mighty fine.
