Our heaviest item ever produced, the Monviso is the ultimate Winter commuting jacket. Unsparingly crafted in Conegliano, Italy on archaic, 3-gauge manual knitting machines that literally takes hours just to boot, the Monviso is a triumph of tradition and modernity. Every single jacket is obtained from nearly two pounds or about a kilo of 100% recycled and sustainable wool and then treated with an effective WR coating to get you through the Winter in a breeze. Made to celebrate De Marchi’s 75th anniversary of uninterrupted activity, the Monviso features a commemorative woven label, a jacquard ''1946'' inscription on back, De Marchi classic chainstitched logo on chest and a sturdy brass RiRi Swiss ''M8'', two-way zipper individually antiqued in liquid silver.
1973 Switzerland Merino Jersey
A white cross on a red ground has always identified the Swiss national uniforms, no matter the sport. One of its most illustrious flag bearer in cycling disciplines has certainly been Peter Frischknecht that in the seventies did set a record as multiple National Championship winner and World Championship medalist. Made in Italy on traditional warp-knitting machines like back in the day from Merino wool blend for classic performance and easy care and featuring chainstitch logos, vintage zippers and traditional back cargo pockets, the 1973 Swiss National Jersey pays homage to the first ever World Cyclocross Championship held in England at Crystal Palace, London, on February 25th, 1973. A defining moment in the history of the sport as it marked the definitive transition to modern Cyclocross.
