There was some time ago a wonderful white, long sleeves cycling polo with red tipping al Vintagevelos -more tennis than cycling, really-, but it disappeared suddenly from the page before I could buy it. By the way, does anyone know an e-store which sell cycling polos? I mean cycling jerseys with polo collar and -usually- two pockets in  the chest. I know some italian brands are making them, but I can't find them online.

Funnily enough, I'm looking for one of those 'cycling polos' myself, particularly the Bianchi ones from the 50's. As for Cycling polos, tried looking for the One True Saxon ones? They pop up on eBay more often than not for under 20.

Thanks, Jonny, in fact I bought the red/white one & other in grey/black when they appeared, maybe three/four years ago. The red/white was beautiful, but it didn't stand even one wash, the red faded and mixed with the white, a total mess. I still use the other, though. That was OTS: fine designs but a risk when it came to materials or sizing.
If you're lucky with the Bianchis let us know. Guess I'll wait for some archive reproduction, may be Le coq sportif? their last line of polos&cycling tops is great, smarter I think than the Bradley Wiggins' for Fred Perry.

the very same thing happened with my OTS red/white top, annoyingly I managed to 'hole' the blue one that i bought at the same time rendering both as 'house wear'  >:(

nice, I like that. I could spend a s**t load with prendas! Quality is good and their service is second to none. Their meraklon arm warmers at 7.50 pair are superb value

The yellow one isn't any better, I wouldn't wear any personally. Also I was in Oi Polloi yesterday and had a look at those Le Coq Sportif cycling jerseys but I thought they were very thin and not the greatest quality, I wouldn't pay the 60 asking price for one.
