1967 marked Eddy Merckx's first appearance at the Giro d'Italia and showed the world what the Belgian was capable of. Despite its name, Blockhaus is actually in Italy. Precisely, it's a German fortification in the Abruzzo region. When Zilioli unleashed his attack on this now epic climb, a young Merckx in a checker Peugeot team jersey was the only one to follow him, and won his first Giro stage. Our Blockhaus 1967 polo celebrates that exact moment when everyone discovered what the ''Cannibal'' was really made of. Made on the same machines that originated many epic jerseys back in the day, the Blockhaus 1967 polo is individually knitted with 100% pure cotton and features three back pockets with genuine mother of pearl buttons and Cornely-type embroidery. Slim fit. Entirely made in Italy from Italian materials.
