Madeleine jersey

£27.00£34.00

This striking cycling jersey is a modern recreation of a traditional cycling garment.

Hand stitched cycling top is 4 hours in cpmstruction. The materials are durable and contemporary, the styling is smooth and shadows the beautiful  Col de la Madeleine.  This mountain, holds within it’s stone, one of the most famous road climbs, in the history of the Tour de France and has been tackled 25 times in its history.

There are days I don’t want to go particualy fast and arrive to coffee with a smile rather than a salted face and empty bidon. That day, I want to wear this jersey and look like a cycling hero.  Slightly slower, slightly more beautiful and spinning the gears of the gods- all high.

 

Raphaël Géminiani was A magician on two wheels in the 1950s professional peloton. He was my uncle’s hero.  My uncle introduced me to cycling. So our early spins in the Spring of 1985- had the soundtrack of Géminiani exploits pedalling my 5 gears. I wanted to be Raphaël.  The cycling uncle, dressed me in one of his old cycling  jerseys from 1951 in these tours.  A red, much-too-big garment with a white stripe and world champions bands adorning the collar. I was Géminiani in that jersey. He wore a sublime jersey with key elements of this garment.This is our recreation of timeless cycling style:- those fantastic cycling years 1951, 1985 and 2019.

    This jersey is so good I have just ordered another one as a spare for when it is in the wash. The material is stretchy and the Large is a perfect but close fir for a 40″ chest.

    Really good quality and looks the part too. Top marks.

    The jersey looks great with its classic styling, fold over collar and button rear pockets however order a size bigger if you don’t want the athletic fit. It feels nice against the skin and is comfortable on the bike. The pockets are small so no good for carrying a rain jacket but mobile phone and wallets fit.
    What lets this jersey down is the material which has the appearance of a quality cotton but is dual layered and makes for a very heavy weight/thickness. The inner is like cool max and does a fairly good job of wicking sweat away from the skin but this then soaks into the heavy cotton outer where it’s sits and doesn’t evaporate causing you to feel wet and uncomfortable. The thickness also means the jersey is very windproof and with only a couple of buttons to open on the neck there is little in the way of ventilation which all adds up to making you over heat.
    This jersey will be ok for gentle summer cafe trips but if you are a true rider it’s just not suited for summer exertion. It will suit cool spring/autumn rides but arm warmers will be needed spoiling the look.
    Affordable at £34 but on hindsight I’d have rather invested this in another merino wool jersey which out perform this material hands down and is worth the expense.
