I'm in the market for a new summer jersey... after wading through the masses of garish garments, does anyone have any recommended brands to look at?

- UK/European based would be ideal, although Australian brands are a possibility.
- Subtle design, (that well known single armband manufacturer kind of style)...
- Well designed not garish pattern
- Not bank breaking

This is an example of the more classier well designed jersey I'd like to get.

Any recommendations would be most appreciated, thank you!

Checked La Passione? Haven't got a kit of theirs myself, but I like the new jerseys. The raw collection with just 1 colour or the camo jerseys with only some graphics on the arms. http://www.lapassione.cc/collections/new-arrivals
Or the Helen Wyman signature jersey from Velocio: https://eu.velocio.cc/product/mens-hele ... re-jersey/

Thank you, already some great suggestions.

I'm not a huge fan of La Passione's jersey's, though I'm pretty close to purchasing a pair of their blue bibs! Having said that, their Raw jersey's do keep growing on me.

My only problem with Isadore is their valuable's pocket placement. I've heard several people say they often catch their fingers/wrist/pocketed items on the zipper. Granted it's not a massive thing, but i'd rather not have to worry about it.

I haven't seen much of Giordana's things so I'll check them out, thank you!

I quite liked some of PNS's last season things, this year... I'm not so sure. Their prices are a little eye watering though.

I currently have a TORM long sleeve jersey (UK brand). I absolutely love it, but I just feel their colour range is a little lacking and I'd like something a little more different this time around.

I'm also stuck on whether going down the sportwool™ fabric route is wise again. Whilst my Longsleeve jersey is sport wool, and in mild weather it's fine, I haven't been able to experience the sport wool in +20ºc weather. Any thoughts?

They produce their own, in-house. Which is why the pricing is so nice.
I like them quite a bit.

I'll second Q36.5. I've worn Assos tops for years and Q36.5's L1 is my new go to jersey when reaching into the closet. All the performance of Assos but in simple plain colors.

If you're going to LMGTFY at least shorten the URL so people don't expect it...

The Q36.5 kit looks pretty good, thank you for them.

I'm surprised there aren't many other brands mentioned... Besides the usual branded 'race' gear on the market, their isn't really much else.

Thank you for all of the recommendations so far.

You checked out Void? Swedish brand, not sure if it's what your looking for but worth a look.

I recently bought a jersey from Endlesscycling.cc Currently only got aero jerseys but the quality seems good so far.

Arenberg.co also got a more subtle design in the jerseys, but it's Australian so probably a lot more expensive.

Q36.5 collection looks nice and simple!
From what I understand though Q36.5 is collaborating with already established italian manufacturers. So, they design but they don't actually make the clothes themselves.
