Hi, Can anyone recomend a Jersey that looks good on and off the bike, eg slighty looser fit in wool or cotton look, that performs like a cycling jersey. I have seen the Rapha Fixed jersey which although slighty plain looks like the kind of thing except £35 over budget, i'm looking at no more than £50. Is it possible with all those needs.



  • Why don't you look on e-bay?

    Sometimes you can find old woolen long sleeve jerseys that look amazingly cool... if you stay clear of those worn by the likes of Eddy Merckx or similar you get them for a few quid...

    Good shout, do you think the acrylic material will be comfortable.

    Thanks again.
  • I've got one in acrylic. It's fine, comfortable and quite warm, but if you have sensitive skin wear a vest or a base layer underneath, it can be quite itchy (as wool on the other hand).
    At that price you can always have a go and if you don't like the feel you sell it.

    Just to give you an idea, a 20 inch armpit-to-armit would fit tight someone around 12-13 stones or 11-12 if you like it a bit comfy

  • Check out the l/s Santini jerseys that Prendas have (http://www.prendas.co.uk/). Their stock seems to be a bit low at the moment but they still have loads to choose from. Quality is great and I think they look good to (I have the retro St-Raphael l/s one).

    Much of the Santini clothing seems to be sized with midgets in mind, so make sure you email the Prendas people to get advice if you're unsure. They are very helpful and will be able to tell you what to go for if you want a baggier fit (as I did).

    ground effect do some nice stuff that can be used on and off the bike

    The baked alaska would be only a tiny bit over budget at 57(prices shown there are inc. postage and duty/vat)
