Best shoulder season jersey
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
I have owned my share of jerseys in the past 40 years. This one is my favorite long sleeve. The fit is superb (I know, it's designed for bearded, bandana wearing graverlers, not me, a roadie) it's fitted yet a touch relaxed. Great for a base layer underneath, so I would say slim not skinny fit. I am 6'1", 175 and the XL fits perfectly, just like XL Castelli gear. (Same parent company you know?) The sleeve length is spot on. Works great with 3 season gloves with cuffs.
Great for 40-60 degrees F with a thin gilet or not. Subtle fashion accents, nothing gaudy. Pockets are deep and elastic is strong. The tail and waist fit me just right, so many jerseys are being made with longer tails, I really hate those. The collar is tall but not too tall and it's a strong zipper as well. I cannot fault this garment in any way.
Yes, I love parentheses.
