Clean and functional.
De Marchi jerseys always stand out for their clean design, detail-obsessed craftsmanship, and exceptional fit, and the PT Men's Jersey isn't any different. It's one of the simpler kits in De Marchi's lineup, with a solid-color background and Italian-flag-inspired print, but its multifilament polyester fabric wicks moisture and breathes with incredible efficiency. This will help you stay cool and dry in the saddle, while the full-length front zip provides unlimited ventilation options and reflective detailing helps you get home safely.
Of course, the PT has all the classic details you'd expect from De Marchi, like three elastic rear pockets and a rear hem gripper elastic that stops the jersey from riding up. The fabric is thin and breathable, but it also boasts SPF 50 sun protection, so you can ride under midsummer rays without getting fried by the time you make it back home.

This jersey is simple but really good looking, breathes well, and fits great.
Personally, I like it in pink in honor of the Giro d'Italia but it looks great in the other colors too (color is obviously personal). I own a lot of De Marchi gear. De Marchi makes classic (almost retro) bike clothing in Italy (unlike Castelli), superfine quality and sewing QC, with obvious pride by the De Marchi family since 1946. It shows.
One caveat. This fabric will snag on Velcro. Be careful if you have velcro on your gloves!
