Just like the overall design and color scheme. Bontrager jersey have always appealed to me. Do not see them everyday, not covered in logos, like a team jersey. And my bikes are red and black!

My dream jersey would have a Mariners Logo on it. Alas, there are none to be had.

I am thinking of a pro team jersey that borders upon nascardom. It proabably has two more on the back, bringing the total to 7!

I already have most of my "dream jerseys": Molteni, Brooklyn, Peugeot, all from the early to mid '70's pro peloton (the design, not the actual jerseys - those are repros). I'd still like to get a Belgian champion's jersey c.1970 (meaning just the three colors divided by straight lines, not artsy-fartsy swirly with the sponsor's logos more prominent than the bold black-yellow-red color scheme. I also wouldn't mind a late-70's Raleigh or an early '60's St. Raphael. All such things exist, but it's hard to find them in my rather gi-normous size.

This is my favourite jersey. It looks good and supports a good cause.
