I quite like the new Giara series from Sportful:

Quality should be great. I have a lot of Sportful clothing and accessories, and can't think of a thing that have disappointed me. Much better than similar (and more expensive) items from Castelli.

I agree that Sportful are slightly better than Castelli although both are produced by the same company (Manifattura Valcismon). IMHO if you want really the best from Made in Italy you should try Alé, Giordana and Santini.

Yes, but there are hardly any jersey designs from Alé or Santini that are subtle ... Giordana have som that are not too high tech euro pro robocop-ish.

Anyone know a source for the Campagnolo branded kit shown on the Campy website?

I just grabbed a DeMarchi Corsa Evo jersey to test. Price was right. Sizing comments seem to indicate they are cut large but not quite club fit yet, so I went a size down. De Marchi has a whole bunch of very understated jerseys. I'll report back on the quality.



Stoli, did you get the DeMarchi in Vienna or online?

How are you liking the jersey? Thinking about getting one too

Marin,
I got the jersey online as part of an order through Cicli Corsa.
The jersey is fine, but my dad-bod, winter weight did not help.
The one issue is that the arm cuffs are quite tight, but as the seasonal weight comes off that should be less of an issue.
If you have a longer torso, then the length would be good. If a shorter torso, then the jersey might bunch a bit at the bottom.
I still view this jersey as a solid training jersey with subtle design and sturdy construction.
It is definitely a little heavier in weight so it would not be a good choice for high summer temps, but for spring with arm warmers it should be just right.
Just for reference, I am wearing a size L in this jersey and am 186 cm tall and 88 kg now.

@Stolichnaya, sorry but I saw your question only now!
That kit (including bibs) are from a friend's brand located in Perth.
His website should be on very soon according to him escapeapparel.cc .

Thanks, Micky.
I'll keep my eyes open for that site.

Shutt do some nice stuff. Not quite the spray-on aero thing that's de rigueur at the moment, but nice nonetheless.

Not european, but search and state fits the well designed/subtle bill, although it seems a little bit bank breaking.

so many nice gear on the market but many are Euro-cut which does fit me right since I don't have smallish shoulders and arms.

I'll bump Q36.5 back to the front of the line because I'm so pleased with their kit. Their jerseys are so nice. Both the L1 and L1 pinstripe are solid colored, comfortable, and perform every bit as well as Assos stuff.
