The De Marchi Men's Ghisallo Merino Jersey pays homage to Italy's most famous cycling museum, which lies a mere stone's throw from the Madonna del Ghisallo hill where a number of iconic cycling races finish. Besides its historic and beautiful location, the Ghisallo Cycling Museum has a number of antique and race-winning bikes from throughout the past century, as well as the original tools used to build bikes at the beginning of the 20th century.
As such, you'll find the appropriately named Ghisallo Merino Jersey takes a nod to the past with its retro-themed graphics and merino wool-blended fabric. Details like mother of pearl buttons and a vintage zipper make it a veritable replica of jerseys from the past. It's entirely made in Italy, so you can wear this classic cycling jersey with the pride and heritage evoked by De Marchi's 70 years of Italian cycling heritage.

Converting more and more of my gear to quality wool. This fits that mark. Jersey pays tribute to the more recent cycling museum in Italy...right next to the 'Cyclists Church'...on my bucket list to visit sometime. I consider the fit to be a sport cut fit--not racer tight. Planning a future Eroica ride and this will fit the bill nicely as the retro inspired attire the series requires. Dinging a star for value--I've got surly wool jerseys that seem the quality of this--just not style--for a substantial discount. Fit, finish, feel of this jersey is very nice. Embroidery well done.
