Indeed. Love the "Ford France" one. Could see that making an appearance in the Dordogne this July & August.

Should go down a treat, Steve as I believe Hutchison tyres are French too, tho' I've never rode one in my life. .

Yes they are Simon...
"A French company established in 1853 by Hiram Hutchinson in Langlée near Montargis, Hutchinson first made coated fabrics under the brand name, Aigle.

In 1890, Hutchinson started to produce bicycle tires. The company won its first competition with Léon Georget in 1909 thanks to the ‘Monofil’ tire. The biggest names in the world of cycling then bore the brand to the highest peaks, claiming victory of the Tour de France from one year to the next (Louis Bobet 1953, 1954 and 1955 –Anquetil 1957, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964).

Raymond Poulidor carried on the spirit of this golden era through the famous Mercier-Hutchinson partnership.

Today, it is the last French bicycle tire manufacturer to make its products in France.

Hutchinson continues to excel with the greatest road and MTB cyclists. In 2012, Hutchinson Tires, a partner of Team Europcar and FDJ-BigMat, won five stages of the Tour de France. As for MTB, in 2012, Hutchinson supplied the DH world champion, Morgane Charre.

Today, it is the last French bicycle tire manufacturer to make its products in France"

 Ah yes , a potted history of Hutchison . .

I have used many different tyre manufacturers over the years but never Hutchison, as I mentioned. Firm believer in Conti's , maybe not cheap but the roll very well , even on SHABBOS!  :D

The belgian brand Coreur du Monde has just released these 2 polo shirts as an homage to the upcoming Ronde; I like the minimalistic approach (and their trademark back collar button, a nod to cycling past):





Prices are moderate (74 €), but not so the shipping costs (15 € for Spain)

J Smedley are doing their version of the cycling polo in a collaboration with Rouleur. I like it, even if it's just 2 buttons (there's a long sleeved top too):

TBF they just look like regular John Smed' to me , with the addition of the pocket on the top one being the only discernable difference . .

I like the Santini one, but my preference is for Jura. 100% Merino wool. Made in Turkey so not sure about the manufacturing conditions but hopefully better than far east sweatshops. UK made too. I have 3 now and they are great both on and off the bike.

They've got a back pocket too, but that's it. I guess I'm more inclined towards minimalism as I get old.

Funny you mention Jura jerseys, Steve, as the new "Coppi" maillots from Rapha are very close-looking to them, only sensibly more pricey.
