Show your jerseys

Creating this thread here in C&V since I know many love collecting the classic wool jerseys for both play and display.

Many like myself collect, not hoard , jerseys for favorite makers and models and events.

Its another area where N+1 can dominate especially since storage does not become a limiting factor like with bikes.

I have many for the makers and models I own and some of the events I want to pay tribute by wearing on some of my rides.

Im going to start off showing a Derosa jersey that I have which really is a symbol of my N+1 because I do Not have a bike to go with it.

Show off your jerseys and provide a little story behind the reason for ownership.
Bonus points for showing your jersey with your namesake maker or model especially if your riding your machine.

I'll need to take pictures, but I have a Nashbar classic from the early 2000s which proved so WRONG as history actually unfolded.

Does a sweater count?
Perfect for this time of year.

Back , during Eroica in Paso Robles
I found this jersey on eBay right after I bought my ‘73 Windsor Profesional. Not a repro , original Lambertini from Mexico.

I have a number, but this one's official, and happily it still fits after thirty-three years.

Our 2020 Spring Training get together with @Soup_Please. @northbend, @nlerner, @-holiday76, and @Spaghetti Legs included a stop at the famous (but sadly now gone) Bisbee Bicycle Brothel, where we saw this vintage jersey hanging on he wall:



This got me thinking. After sourcing the wool jersey blanks from Kucharik, I sent the picture, above to Spectrum Embroidery. They came up with a flocking transfer and applied it to our jersey blanks:

I was initially drawn to this jersey because I'm a fan of Selle Italia. It was an added perk to light up the face of my Colombian best friend when I sent him a picture. He knows nothing about cycling except the name Nairo Quintaña but he was very proud to be represented.



This second one isn't exactly vintage but it was the first jersey I've ever owned. I don't have any close friends who care for cycling but an old acquaintance of mine was coaching in BC at the time. Right when I started to develop more of an interest in riding, and not just for transportation, he sent me this. I don't wear it much anymore because it's not well represented on the back of a guy struggling to climb the most modest of hills.

I seem to have acquired a few vintage jerseys over the years. I'll just focus on a few of the Raleigh jerseys, since that's the main theme.

The oldest is a Raleigh jersey from the early 70's. You can tell it's old by the front pockets. The use of embroidery for the Raleigh text is another hint. It's made of a very heavy wool... almost like a horse blanket.. and is only suitable for cool days.

I got it from a local friend who noticed my habit of riding old Raleighs, and thought I might use it. It's not easy to find a good day to wear it, though.

The jersey is a tiny bit famous due to it being used in an inset photo on the International page of a Raleigh catalog...




here's the jersey itself, hanging from my 1974 Raleigh International....




Another jersey is in the Raleigh Team colors and bearing the sponsor names of Campagnolo and McGregor. I'm not sure if Raleigh shops sold these. Presumably these were team replica jerseys?? Here it is seen hanging from my Raleigh Team bike. I think it's a wool blend, and not nearly as itchy or hot as the white jersey shown earlier. The text is applied flocking... is that the term? I'm not even sure what it is, but that was the usual method of the era.




The third jersey is also in the Raleigh team colors, but belongs to the Skunk River Cyclists, a.k.a. SRC, which was sponsored and led by Michael's Cyclery, a bike shop in Ames, Iowa. I grew up in Iowa and went to college at Ames, so Michael's Cyclery left an impression on me. The SRC had some of the nation's top riders, such as John Howard, Andy Hampsten, Jeff Bradley, and others. Here's a photo of one of the SRC riders leading a lap of the criterium stage of the 1982 Iron Horse Classic in Durango, Colorado.



and here's my jersey...


I've been fortunate enough to visit a couple of NAHBS when they were somewhat local. At the 2015 NAHBS in Louisville, Kentucky, I wore the white Raleigh jersey on Saturday and the SRC jersey on Sunday. The jerseys got a lot more attention than I was expecting! I had someone ask to take a picture of me in the white jersey, and a few folks stop to tell me about their days racing when wearing the SRC jersey. Curiously, I even had Rolland Della Santa pull me over to tell me stories about the SRC and the old days! Pretty cool!

I'm a very sentimental person.
Some of the best bike memories I’ve collected over the years were while wearing a Cino Jersey.
Cino (Heroica) is a magical ride. Most years the organizers would offer a jersey.
The jersey design changing nearly every year so they become instant collectors items.
Here are the best of the bunch, all of which were made by Woolrich:

The first one I got was back in 2011. I gave it to Gugie a few years ago.

This one has crossed the USA and Western Europe. I don't suppose I'll never part with this one.

My favorite ones have 5 pockets.

I love the pre-1980's jerseys with chain stitch embroidery. Found an artist locally that could do it, so had these jerseys embroidered. The Kypo jersey is a Raxar product from the 70's, most likely acrylic, but it doesn't say. The Pinarello jersey is a modern wool jersey from Oregon Cycle Wear.











More about chain stitch embroidery here: Vintage Jersey Lettering

Also got this Sergal wool jersey from the 70's which I love. Similar to the Danish national jersey from that time, but that may be coincidental - it's made in Italy. Unfortunately it has been shrinking over time (seriously!) and the zip is wrecked, so I don't think I'll be able to wear it anymore:

Not wool, and maybe stretching the definition of "vintage," but two of these former employers of mine don't exist anymore. The third is still around, but the go by PwC now.

My first proper cycling jersey, purchased 1984/5 from the World Famous in Auckland, New Zealand Doug Hills Cycles, Upper Queen St. Long gone but not forgotten, and all others since fade by comparison, although a Santini La Vie Claire and a wool/acrylic Panasonic Raleigh saw some extended mileage.

I can’t recall the maker, and haven’t seen another although later synthetic Ariostea team jerseys with highly dubious fish scales pattern surface regularly.

Wool can often be easy to "block".

Wash by hand in hot water then carefully stretch and blot blot out on clean towels, restretch a few times while it dries keeping it sprawled out on the towels.

You should be able to find someone to fix the zipper, find a tailor or seamstress that takes on small projects, you can ask at suit shops, dry cleaners and higher end clothing stores, Nordstrom, Macys and the like.

Thanks! Wasn’t aware of blocking, will have to try it.

The teeth of the zipper are falling off, so it would need to be replaced. Just like components, any replacement would need to be OEM or a convincing replica. You’re right though, I probably need to ask around and see what can be done.

Here’s a few. First three were given to me after the passing of George Van Meter, an alternate on the US Olympic team in 1956. I wear two of them from time to time.







Last one came to me at the 1990 Goodwill Games. Mrs. Spadoni and I volunteered at the track. She got a job in the rider’s area. Dirk Meyer of the DRR pursuit liked her Oakleys, and offered this up in exchange. Sadly, it got damaged in a move.

Very carefully is key, easy, easy.

You might want to try and source a zipper yourself, if you find the right capable person they might be more inclined to help if they don't have to find a zipper.

Oregon cycle wear might be a good place to start.

Most of mine are modern repops, I do have a lot of newer wool that I use a lot, merino is almost always on board.

100% merino Bontrager


100% merino that was dirt cheap from NZ


Nod to Jens.





Many here don't like these but they were very recognizable and helped cement Moto CT's place in history.
