Crafted in Italy from 100% Superfine merino wool on 7-gauge, old-school looms, the Criterium Track Jacket has been in production here at De Marchi since day one. Back in the day it was the only conceivable lifestyle piece and it was worn on any pre and after race situation. Originally only available to pro teams for budget reasons, eventually it became a standard also through amateurs.
Slightly more comfortable than the original to comfortably accommodate either a jersey or short underneath, the Criterium is thick and warm and features the hallmark Emilio De Marchi chain-stitched signature on the chest, striped ribbed hem, collar and cuffs, a fully-divisible, 2-way, brushed brass zipper and a commemorative woven label.
A timeless item, our classically-styled cycling gloves are cut from the finest cowhide that has been carefully vegetable-tanned for high durability and that will improve with age, providing a refined vintage look and comfort as they shape to your hands. Featuring a reinforced, textured leather palm for shock-absorption and grip plus a popper strap for a snug fit, the Classic Gloves are not meant to be washed so excess dirt may be removed with a damp cloth.
