Bergamo jerseys
 
My very sweet girlfriend just got me a nice jersey for my birthday, a brand I've never heard of before. It's a Marcello Bergamo- looks great, fits perfectly, and is super soft. Nice bright yellow color. It's obvious it's Italian, but don't know any more about it than that. Anyone know anything else about this brand?

With a search I found a few websites. The 2nd one here has a brief history.

Thanks for the links- I had been to the first link, but it didn't tell me too much about the brand...

As for the review, I can't speak for their bibs but the jersey I got fits like a luxury glove. I can't wait to put many miles on this jersey:

The fabric is just sublime, and the fit is flattering. I have a Pearl Izumi jersey that just fits weird, with the zipper forming little *****s out of my stomach. This one fits much better.

I guess I was just curious if it was a recognized brand in the road cycling world, or more of a specialty here in the U.S..... I do like that it isn't a major U.S. brand, and doesn't have frivolous logos all over it.
