In 1972, the Dutchman Kuiper shocked the world by winning the gold medal in the Munich summer games. De Marchi, always one to embrace tradition, created the 1972 Holland Men's Cycling Jersey to honor Kuiper's win and bring a little bit of throwback class to modern roads.
Wool was the go-to jersey fabric for years, until it was gradually pushed out by cheaper and easier synthetics. Although they're affordable and comfortable, synthetic fibers can never match wool's inherent antimicrobial, moisture-managing, and temperature-regulating properties, which is one reason De Marchi made the Holland Jersey from a blend of fine-gauge merino wool and acrylic fibers. Merino is also naturally antimicrobial, so you'll smell fresh as a Dutch tulip when you stop for a jenever and a stroopwafel.
Thoughtful touches set the Holland Jersey apart from the retro pack. The three back pockets close with mother of pearl buttons, and the flag-inspired pattern at the sleeves, neck, and torso let everyone know that your cycling affections lie with the land of windmills and Gouda.
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
