1967 marked Eddy Merckxâ€™s first appearance at the Giro dâ€™Italia and showed the world what the Belgian was capable of. Despite its name, Blockhaus is actually in Italy. Precisely, itâ€™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 â€śCannibalâ€ť 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.
