|im so digging my new merino wool jersey||Spirito|

|its perfect for "now" weather with a smartwool base layer underneath. if its a little chilly a windbreaker vest over the combo is all i need and im dreading when it gets a little colder as the extra shell doesn't bug me as much as the bulk and cheezy colored options.
doesn't look too bad in civies and for just wearing around either. i know one day though that ill have a mechanical failure on a ride and will eventually get grease over the white portions.
its nice having a jersey that i can simply air out after use and not have it smelling like the modern fabrics do.

|is that like a "Rolodex" watch or just a typo? their wool looks tempting for the price but? anybody have one of these jerseys? are they 100% wool (Merlino or Merino)?|
|Typo, I think.||look271|

|They're rebuilding their website, so it's possible...I bought one last year. Nothing wrong with the quality but it was too small and they didn't have any I liked in my size, so I sent it back. They are decent to deal with-I've purchased socks and a LS AG2r jersey from them-nice stuff.|
|oops - should be a post to the below thread Nm||Spirito|

|the Coppi Bianchi/Campagnolo, and Swiss National jersey. really the nicest cycling clothes I've ever seen. worth the dough. although I never seem to have enough when they're on sale. wish I had bought one of the Clement's when they had 'em.|| |
