As interesting as retro-inspired jerseys are, there’s very little quality to the run-of-the-mill reproductions you’ll find online. Unless you’re looking at DeMarchi’s offerings. These 100% made in Italy jerseys are either full merino, or a merino blend. They won’t itch or pill like other repro jerseys and some even have a unique story behind them. Take, for example that Cinelli jersey… It’s an exact replica of Doug Dale’s own:

“Doug Dale, a well-known American racer in the 1960’s and ’70’s lent us his original cycling jersey for the replica, one that he obtained from the legendary Kopp’s Cycles in Princeton, New Jersey USA.”

Such craftsmanship and heritage isn’t cheap, but then again, at least you know where it’s made!

    €200 for a jersey? How do you spell “rip off”?

      Sure is not cheap, but I’ve got a De Marchi wool jersey worn by my father since 1972 and it’s like brand new! Very impressive :-)
