The past is the future.
Castelli designed the Classica Jersey for those who place an overall value on quality without sacrificing race-ready characteristics. Think of it as a hybrid -- Italian styling crossed with technical racing materials. Pull on the Classica when you're planning on stopping at the cafe mid-ride for an espresso or when you're gearing up to hammer laps at your weekly criterium.
The Classica takes a nod from jerseys of the past, using an understated, single-fabric style throughout. The Prosecco multi-denier material is soft and silky-smooth with a topical hydrophilic treatment that pulls moisture off of the skin and disperses it over a large surface area for rapid evaporation. This exclusive microfiber fabric maintains the jersey's clean drape regardless of how much sweat you produce underneath. Advancing this principle, a sleek mesh collar lining wicks moisture and keeps your neck cool and comfortable, even when the jersey is fully zipped.
The sharp cut of the Classica Jersey, along with smooth seams and a full-length hidden zipper, completes the streamlined, elegant fit. Three external pockets along the back make it easy to grab your extra gear, and an additional zippered key pocket keeps your valuables safely hidden and out of the way. Small reflective tabs line the bottom of the center rear pocket, completing this gentleman's jersey from Castelli.
Look closely at the Classica and you see the attention to small, but necessary, details has not been overlooked. Graphic treatment is subtle, with just two tasteful logos and a thin, contrasting band across the upper chest and shoulders.
The Castelli Classica Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black, Orange, and White.

Quality materials missing the ideal fit.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
When I pulled the jersey from the package, I was impressed by the feel of the material used in the jersey. Additionally, the styling was exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, the fit was not. I ordered according to measurements and previous experience with Castelli jerseys. The fit of this jersey was a bit too loose for my liking. I'm 6'1", with a 38" chest and 155 lbs and ordered a medium. I placed a few items in the pockets and found that they didn't handle much without sagging. I'm bummed to be returning this jersey as the styling is right up my alley.
