There is a fantastic gallery of classic jerseys on Pinterest, thanks to the guys at Milltag.

Ron,
How do you think that this one would go with the rasta Superlite?

Well some people really like those rainbow colours, but probably not mixed like that - not after a hard night anyway.
But I don't mind it at all.

I scored this black one from one of those UK sellers so I look the part on my Olympia and the purple one from a US seller. I had to get the zipper replaced on the black on though.
Mid 90's I believe.

Some really great stuff there. A good example of how graphic design has changed over the years, as well as the rise in more 'minor' sponsorship and having to squeeze more names onto a jersey.

Always been partial to the La Vie Claire jerseys myself. One day I'll get one.

Dave Moulton has blogged a thumbs up on these. Not bad. I have a fantasy about lobbing up behind the Turramurra Cycles peleton with a few guys in these, astride a collection of horizontal toptube steelies. Noses would go in the air, no doubt.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

My wife bought herself one from Prendas. But back in the early 90's, with unaccountable fashion foresight, I actually bought a Look rain jacket with built in hood and all, and the same vibrant mondrian design. I eyed it hanging in the window of the lbs for months, until one day the price was reduced and I couldn't resist any longer. I still have it, and it's probably been used no more than a dozen times, and it's still in excellent condition.

The Prendas quality is good? It appears to be, but I've not actually possessed one.

Yes Jim, I've been a Prendas customer for quite few years - most of the goods are well-known and respected brands anyway, but even the house-branded items such as socks and under clothes are good quality. Service and prices are also very good, and it's not at all unusual to receive a hand-written thank you note or a small gift item with orders.

My collection of Retro jersey's, some you would recognise & some you wouldn't.

Quite a few are from Swedish & Norwegian Cycling clubs, one there from the 1998 UCI World Masters Championships, others are very well known Pro or Continental Teams.

One of these is on the way - not exactly classic, but very retro...
