Having read previous posts, I ordered the correct size which for me was XXL, I am 6'1" 190 and normally wear a XL short sleeved cycling jersey. The wool blend content is not itchy and does a great job of keeping your upper body warm, including the arms. Very breathable, in 4 rides in temps from 60 to 74 perspiration was easily wicked away. The shirt was dry after I took it off. Love the styling that other brands are now starting to copy ( eg Rapha). Leave it to the Italian fashionistas to pull this one off, just be sure to order the right size as they run much smaller than labeled.

This is a very high quality wool product. My law practice is a "Bike Law" practice- I will use this sweater for meetings, speaking at bike events and other "showy" things- I'm sure you can ride in it, but it is far too nice for me to want to sweat in it! Just a great looking, high quality sweater... Like most Euro cycling products, it tends to run small to my US body - I am 6' 200lbs and ordered an XXL to be comfortable..

Believe the reviews when they say this jersey runs way too small. My husband usually wears a mens large jersey and after reading the reviews and knowing the european sizes run small I bought him the 2XL. The 2XL was just slightly big on me and I'm 5'1" and 130lbs. Order at least 3+ sizes larger than your usual US size jersey. If you can get the correct size this is a great jersey.

I read reviews on this and ordered 2 sizes larger than I normally do. Still way too small- and I understand Euro-Cut garments are snug. Could not get the 2XL size even on -and I wear a Large size in most cycling jackets

I originally ordered a small but returned for a medium because the small barely came down to the top of my shorts. I'm 5'7" and can normally wear a mens small. Beautiful blue color, great material, sleeves are plenty long. Would have given 5 stars if the zipper was a little longer. Wore it on a ride that was 60 degrees at the start and over 70 by the last climb and was never too hot or cold. Worth the money for sure.
