The best of both worlds.
The Giordana Sport Wool Jersey provides the benefits of wool while remaining practical for frequent use on your most strenuous rides.
Rather than use wool exclusively, Giordana added polyester and polypropylene to create a blended fabric for this jersey. Your favorite cycling kits get a lot of wear, and this fabric was designed to withstand machine washes and resist shrinking better than its more delicate 100% wool counterparts. The synthetic polypropylene also helps pull moisture away from your skin faster on long rides. Expect a jersey that’s softer than wool on its own as a result of the added polyester and polypropylene.
Giordana decided to construct this jersey on the same machines it uses for its seamless base layers, which means you get a fit that’s stretchy and accommodating like a knit, but still fitted enough to stay in place while you ride. While the jersey isn’t entirely seamless, four-needle flatlock stitching throughout adds comfort and helps eliminate abrasion. For stashing ride essentials and nutrition, three rear pockets provide plenty of room. The jersey also features a 14cm zipper to help manage temperature mid-ride, with a zipper garage at the collar to protect your skin.

Made for athletic body type only. If you're fat or almost fat but have that extra fat around the arms, belly and chin, this jersey is not for you.
What an awesome jersey!

I saw it was on sale, and always wanted to try a wool jersey for cooler mornings so I got the Italia/black color. The jersey is a combination of wool and synthetic fabrics, which is great for retaining shape and fit. I'm just about 5'9", 155 lbs, with an about 40 inch chest. The jersey fits perfectly. I disagree it fits way too small. Perhaps it doesn't fit well people who are out of shape and carry extra pounds around their torsos or waists, but if you're lean, it fits custom made.
WAAAAY TOOOO SMALL!!
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I should have known better. In the past, I've tried Giordana clothing, but their sizing has always been WAY TOO SMALL. I'm 5'11", 190 lbs. and ordered an XL. This thing wouldn't have fit on a 12 year old! My choice was to return it for an XXL or just get a refund. I got a refund. Apparently, they don't make Italians as big as I am. This will be the last time I even think about buying Giordana clothing.
