1974 was a great year in Belgium. RDV won Paris-Roubaix, the Giro di Lombardia, the points title in the Giro d'Italia, and the Belgian national cyclocross championship in a kit that looked strikingly similar to the De Marchi Belgium 1974 Men's Cycling Jersey.
Whether you're a fan of De Vlaeminck and Belgian cycling, or just a cycling nostalgic, the Belgium 1974 is a must-have piece of kit. Made with a blend of merino wool and acrylic fibers, it has a soft feel and keeps you comfortable during rides warm and cool. Merino is naturally antimicrobial, moisture wicking, and temperature regulating, so you'll always feel great and smell fresh, while the Belgian tricolor on the chest, sleeves, and collar leave no doubt as to what cycling power you support.
At the back, three pockets hold your essentials and close with real mother of pearl buttons, a detail that De Vlaeminck probably never had. An embroidered De Marchi logo at the chest adds extra sophistication, and the 1/4-length zipper helps you ventilate whether you're pounding over pavé or out for a leisurely summer ride.
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
