im so digging my new merino wool jerseySpirito

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.

http://www.longscycle.com has SS jerseys @ $39. They have a few smaller sizes in LS, too.

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 NmSpirito

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.
