Replica / Vintage cycling jerseys

Postby aclivity » Sat Aug 18, 2012 22:20 pm

When I was younger I rode in a Raleigh Creda Camapgnolo jersey, a bit like this one Image ... for a very short time in 1984 I was even almost considered trendy when Mick Talbot from the Style Council appeared on Top Of The Pops wearing one. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEVSc4ejfXs)

Since getting back into cycling I've been looking for some suitable jerseys to wear, if I could find my original one back at my parents I doubt it would fit me, although my son might fit it soon.

Is there anyone making replica vintage kit? Call it nostalgia if you like, but with British cycling entering a golden era now, surely there is a market for middle aged born again riders like me? Not to mention Bradley Wiggins notable support for mod-style as well!

Prendas is your best bet but if anyone knows of others.......
None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

ETA or probably one of these: http://www.prendas.co.uk/details.asp?ID=2841

Nice to see retro tops being worn, all the breathability of a bin liner though

Strange - the Prendas ones are exactly the same as any other modern top - just with a retro design.

+1 - I've bought a couple of (retro) jerseys from Prendas and they are no less/more breathable than any of my other jerseys. In fact, the Prendas jerseys are my faves.

I've been thinking of buying this for ages and each time I visit the site I have a quick peek, so yesterday I said bollox and bought it: -

As has been mentioned Prendas, top company to deal with and some excellent bargains at the same time!

Good choice! This was the first one I bought from Prendas, love it! I've since bought the Brooklyn jersey, which my 4 year old loves as it reminds him of Captain America.

Have had to email Prendas a few times ref sizing and they've always been very good to deal with. Trying to decide which one to go for next.......

I also coveted a replica Raleigh/Creda jersey when I was younger, round about the early eighties if I recall. Halfords had one for the princely sum of £19.99. By the time I'd saved up for it the sponsor had changed to Raleigh/McGregor and shot up in price. Never did own one :( Might be forced to make amends though if I can find one.
This takes a bit of beating in the retro jersey stakes though, I think.

This place seems to do a lot of replica jersey although their 'oldies' only seem to go back a couple of years.

Vintage Velos do a range of replica wool jerseys in classic designs - these are embroidered rather than reproductions in polyester.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
