De Marchi - Heritage Jersey - 1972 Australia
It's impossible to forget the immortal Sefton's legendary push for silver in the road race at the 1972 summer games in Munich. While not many can dream of a medal to match Clyde's, you can honor the Aussie with De Marchi's 1972 Australia Men's Cycling Jersey, which mirrors Sefton's medal-winning kit incorporating some modern touches to create the perfect contemporary throwback.
Wool fell out of fashion for years, but its moisture-wicking, breathable, and temperature-regulating properties can exceed anything offered by synthetics. De Marchi wove the Australia from a blend of merino wool and acrylic to keep you dry and comfortable on course or during leisurely cruises.
In addition to the classic fabric and retro styling, De Marchi's Australia jersey has genuine mother of pearl buttons on the three rear pockets, which is something Sefton probably never had. A short zipper through the round neck provides the possibility for extra ventilation, and the elastic knit at the sleeves keeps them in place when you're on the road.
Merino wool blends are natural fibers that are amongst the best breathing materials known to mankind. Merino wools can vary in quality, and De Marchi only uses the finest qualities and highest grade blends for their products. De Marchi's Merino blends are always made of the finest qualities.
The jerseys are hand made in Italy. Merino will keep you cool when it's hot and warm when it's chilly, so it's a perfect fabric for three-season jerseys, and it has natural stretch that accommodates your movements without restriction. The Touaregs in the hot and cold deserts of Marokko have known these characteristics for years and used such blends for their clothes until today
