It's almost definitely Saffetti linked with Caro Ferrer. Maybe a custom for them.

Yup, custom LTD edition for Caro Ferrer.

Does anyone have any experience with the Safetti kit?
Thanks, Point. Appreciate it.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned Dotout here yet, but I picked up two in a recent sale and am pleasantly surprised. The quality is solid, nice lazer cut cuffs and collar, good looking schemes and colors without being too outlandish. There are also some nice reflective elements that have been worked in to the design, which are very appreciated. There seems to be less of the thin side panel mesh in the Dotout designs than seen on a lot of other brands lately, but the jersey does not ride warmer. The SS arm length strikes a good balance without approaching that ridiculous trend to the elbow and the sleeves lay completely flat on the arm. There is zero air getting in there to cause flapping and drag. The brand seems to be putting their motto on the jerseys subtly "Back in two hours" and the jerseys are meet that motto well. I can recommend so far. The wife gave me a wink and the thumbs up on a ride recently. I'll thank the jersey... The Dotouts are at a good price point too. For reference I am 186 cm tall, 84 kg heavy with a 106 cm chest and am wearing an XL in both the Hybrid and Flash model jerseys. I could certainly stretch into an L, but it would be just that, a stretch.

Sorry but the world needs more ridicoulus elbow sleeves lenght! :lol:
Seriously, Dotout is from Treviso, right?
I live very close but the first time I saw this brand was on some foreigners websites, almost appearing from nowhere.

No clue about a Treviso HQ, but the jerseys say "Made in Italy" on them... :)

Go drop in on them and let us know if they are good folks. :thumbup:

The Assos Anthracite, Quartz and For Toni (actually 3 different colors) are all 3 only a „one production run only“.

Yes, and yes, there are 3 colours of the ForToni. All of these are a single production run. We wont be producing any more. We will do something else instead! But Tony, this is progress, no?

Yes! Bravo!!

And I have bought the 2 designs of the Anthracite and 2 colors of the For Toni (dark and light blue)!!

I have however the feeling that the fit of the Anthracite is less tight/ racy than the For Toni or Cento.

I do love the idea of the single production run associated with a designer/ architect etc....A good new marketing method!

I’m going to bump Q36.5 back to the front again since I’m so pleased with them. Their L1 and L1 pinstripe are just about the only jerseys I ride with anymore. They’re so comfortable and effective at both wicking on hot days nd keeping me warm on cool ones. They’te so light that honestly I feel like I’m not even wearing a jersey at times. I also lkke the Rapha Superlight jersey on hot humid days. It’s another low key under-stated piece of kit.

Thanks to this thread, I took delivery today of a Q36.5 pinstripe jersey. Whoa.... seriously sweet! The material is odd stuff, certainly not like the Assos, Primal, or Pactimo that I normally wear -- but the Q36.5 seems to indeed 'disappear' when I put it on. There's no sensation of weight at all.

FWIW, taking it out of the box, I feared it would be way too small. But, seems to fit perfectly and stretch nicely into place. I am 5'8" (172cm) and 140# (63kg) and the small size fits the way I like. Tight, but not like a sausage casing. Pockets are weird, and I hope I get used to them.
