    Lovely jersey, although I received one in a fetching shade of dark purple and not the black one as ordered! Nice fit, I'm 5'10' 73kg and 38" chest and ordered a medium. The jersey is a little longer in the torso than some but doesn't bunch when in a tuck. Well made, I was impressed by the lack of loose threads, and with some quirky details. My only gripe is that the rear zip pocket is woefully small and I can't even fit my hand into it. The sportwool fabric wicks well, gives great insulation under a gilet and remains pong free after several rides. Makes a viable alternative to giving your money to Rapha for one of their Classic Jerseys.

    So I have been riding for about 7 years and have reached over the 40 year age mark - hence the focus on the items now are more inline with long term wear and quality rather than simple graphics and good looks. I have purchased several Rapha items in the past and have been more than happy with them - so I assume that most people who are considering this type of jersey would be inline with my own preferences. Simply put - this Jersey is worth the money. I have a 42 inch chest and fairly broad shoulders, not the typical praying mantis endurance kind of cyclist build, so I was slightly concerned in ordering the size Large of which I was on the upper spectrum of the sizing. With these measurements, the jersey fit well - slightly tight, not not to much. The jersey has a heavier weight fabric with the 30 odd % fine wool and polyester blend, which is ideal for spring/autumn rides. During the cooler starts I team this up with a CDC Gilet which works perfectly. The question many may have is "Will my iPhone fit in the zipped compartments?" The answer is Yes. In both of the zipped areas on the front of the jersey and the centre rear, you can easily fit the larger smartphones to record your Strava rides. All in all, this jersey is great value for money if your in the upper spectrum of quality cycling attire and is comparable with Rapha in quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to those who are after simplicity, quality and style.

    This jersey became a good companion for both commuting and long rides. Thermal insulation is good in a wide range of temperatures, I'm using it on (italian) summer and it works just well. I'm 173cm tall, and the small size fits well (the medium was too big). The rear zipped pocket is delicate - I got two small holes bringing home-keys... that's a chance to put a nice patch on it! highly recommended jersey.
