Do the wool jerseys have rear pockets and size wise, how do they size, Euro or US?

Check out this site http://vintagevelos.com/

Click on "World Champion Molteni Wool Jersey" A page will appear. Old wool team jerseys (which are expensive) and the modern wool jerseys. Click on the photo of the jersey to obtain the price, note they are not cheap.

They are designed exactly as today's synthetic jerseys, the only difference is the material.

They appear to be US sized but you would need to check with the shipper for sizing.

They vary a lot. I have a couple of great Lemond wool jerseys that Nashbar was blowing out for $20 each a couple of years ago. They have long zips and really soft wool, but one large rear pocket that zips closed - not as handy as three rear pockets imho. I have a Molteni replica that has three rear pockets with buttons at the top and no elastic. And I have a few Swobo jerseys that have three elasticized rear pockets, just like most synthetics.

IMHO the only reason I would consider wearing a wool jersey is in the dead of winter and it would have to be bone chilling cold. It would save me from bundling up in layers. Techonolgy has changed, the new age stuff is better to deal with the elements. In the old days I'd hang my bike up in the winter, now I can cycle through it...
