Spanish high-street brand Mango have been the last to jump aboard the faux cycling clobber wagon, judge for yourselves. IMO, it's not the most interesting garment they're offering right now, there are some wool & cotton/wool jumpers cricket-style in their webstore that look better.

I'm tempted by the second one, but the zipper and logo are putting me off. Shame as it's only 12.99 in the online sale at the moment

I'd swear it's burgundy.

The logo puts me off too. Mango and Zara haven't used them until now, and I can't see the point of using a logo on a cheap brand,

Maybe not the more stylish clobber out there, but they come fairly cheap and  look quality, in fact the jersey -shame about the chest logo-reminds me the basics of the FP Wiggo collection. The monkey jacket is only 70 pounds, so a decent option too. Oh, the brand is Reynolds and it seems to have an illustrious history in bikes' accessories' manufacturing. You can find them in the Oi Polloi webstore.

Nearly bought some Garneau myself - but then found a pair of SH Fizik R5 which had only been worn in the house (???) for 65 on eBay so snapped them up. They are truly superb. I'm a black shoed man myself - white socks in summer and darker colours for colder times

Yeah the Fizik ones I have seen are certainly light. My shoes are generally covered with overshoes in winter so no one sees the colour of them , keeps them clean too. . ;D

there is that - I'm not a fan of overshoes and tend to wear sealskinz socks in winter instead but that was with an old pair of diadora's - not been out in ages so may dig my endura overshoes out
