Back to my roots. Love it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
6' 186 lbs size 3X in Castelli. (Years of the iron.) I was pleasantly surprised to find the cut of this thing is athletic just like their other jerseys - accommodates my shoulders without being baggy on a 31" waist. The pockets are perfectly designed - just right for a larger hand and slightly constricted at the top with elastic. The partial zip simplifies things and the wool quality is good but not great - about like thicker Smart Wool stuff. (ArcTeryx being the cashmere standard.) I am also pleased to report you can dry this thing with your jeans until it's toasty; just a touch of shrinkage the first time and none thereafter. Perfect for cool days and at 70 degrees in the sun it's not oppressive. Excellent.

is this an itchy jersey? or itch fee like Rapha??
Bill, I just purchased this (the Vittore Gianni wool jersey) and have not experienced any itch associated with regular wool or wool blends. Although I don't own any Ralpha, this is made from Merino wool of the highest quality. It does run a bit small as do most Castelli products.
