It looks very much like an afterthought . .

A wrong one at that.

This Muji 3 button linen jacket looks like a reasonably priced choice for summer wear, a bit like Uniqlo's summer jackets of last seasons, but I'm cautious about sizing, as they don't have XS sizes. Has anyone tried this? Do they come snug or loose?

From Zara, but be warned, there are no natural fibres whatsoever in these cycling tops:





Meanwhile, these monkey jackets (also by Zara) not only look the part (even the subtle side pockets), but are 100 % cotton. They come in navy, white and pale blue (the only one that oddly is a poly/cotton mix) too, but I bet nobody here has got a yellow monkey jacket (and you'll have to admit it doesn't look half bad):

If you want natural fibres on a cycling top you need to go to Rapha or Torm. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

Yup. Especially since Feed Perry ended their run with Wiggins.

I have a lovely DiMarchi merino cycling top in France 1954 colours which is too small. Any of you small faces interested let me know, otherwise itís going on eBay.

The De Marchi tops are beautiful and they seem to be quality (with according prices), but I've got too many cycling tops and I don't wear them that often nowadays.
