Although Giordana describe this jersey as a 'less aggressive, non-race fit,' we initially think it's extremely close fit and sleek lines were aimed at just that. Not important, but it does make us wonder how close their race wear fits!
Perfect for the hottest days of the summer, the Lungo is wonderfully light and airy, with a feathery open weave fabric helped out by open mesh under the arm pits. The styling is universally loved too, with great colours and some lovely style points such as the zig-zag cuffs and contrasting zips and trim.
The real devil is in the detail however. Broad 2 inch elastic cuffs and hem are extremely comfortable yet firm and supportive in use, with the hem being backed by a sliver of silicon gripper to make sure it doesn't slip. The main zip is chunkier than we would have expected but, as we are sure was the intention, the size gives it a cracking free running quality - allowing one handed action very easily.
If at first the £79 price tag makes you feel you aren't getting a lot for your cash, take it for a ride and you will be pleasantly surprised.
