Taken directly from Gage + DeSoto (because I wrote it):
This year, we had an elaborate April Fool’s story prepared about finding a barn in France full of NOS jerseys from a defunct cycling team. It was meant for our blog and we even mocked up a design to go with the post. It was going to remain just that – a prank, until we thought it would be even more fun to make a few samples of the jersey.
We immediately realized we needed to make this. It’s nothing less than ode to summertime in the 80’s, and to our childhoods. We think the design speaks for itself (and we’re worried that including the text of the “sponsors” would somehow find a way to our desk).
So, we’ll be taking pre-orders for the jersey for the next few weeks. The jersey is produced by Sommerville Sports at a factory that might be responsible for a jersey you already own. This particular model uses a recycled Eco Green fabric, so you can feel good about reducing your carbon footprint.
Extremely limited to pre-orders only, so don’t wait around on this one!
