Size Guide
Size Guide: Giessegi / GSG

All size guides on the Prendas website have been specifically prepared to help you get the right size garment. We do not use generic charts from manufacturers, we measure every garment that we sell.

For this garment, "Harry" the mannequin (which the vast majority of our product photographs are taken on) wears a size MEDIUM and he measures chest 39"/ 99cm, height 6`0"/ 183cm. It is worth noting that our sizing recommendations are based on a close fit, so if you want a bit of room, it is sometimes advisable to go up one size.

Summary Guide:
Chest Size 36in 38in 40in 42in 44in 46in 48in 50in 52in

Detailed Guide:
The detailed size guide allows you to compare an existing garment that you own, measure it like we've done (taking all measurements from the outside, with the garment lying flat) and then compare the sizing.

Picture showing where you need to measure your jerseys to determine what size you will need.
Chest:  Lay the garment flat and measure between the lowest point of the arm seams.

Front:  The length at the centre, from the top of the collar to the bottom of the hem.

Back:  The length at the centre back, from the top of the collar to the bottom of the hem.

Sleeve Length:  Measure from the bottom of the collar to the end of the sleeve.

Waist:  Lay the garment flat and measure on the outer edges along the bottom.

We've always had a soft spot for many of the GiS teams from ’78 to ’91 - we recently talked Rouleur through our personal favourite designsGiessegi produced the team kit back then and now this highly accurate retro jersey features a full zip and silicon gripper at the jersey hem.

Sizing: We are currently preparing a detailed size guide, but we do generally advise going one size smaller than your usual Santini garments.


  • Exclusive to Prendas: A great retro look!
  • Fully covered full zip to maintain the look of the design
  • Three Rear Pockets
  • Silicon gripper on the waist
  • Matching bibshorts also available!
  • Made in Italy by Giessegi

Although the current trend for fluro yellow might have something to do with it, we've always had a soft spot for many of the different GiS teams over the years. The Italian ice cream producer’s logo adorned jerseys from ’78 through to ’91.   Giessegi produced the team kit back in 1991, it's great that we can link up with the original manufacturer to reproduce the jersey and matching team bib shorts.

Not only have we ensured the accuracy of the jersey, we've added some modern styling features like a full zip and silicon gripper at the jersey hem to improve the fit and function of the garment.


There is a great blog review of the GiS Gelati/Ballan retro kit by Wheelsuckers when we originally sold the kit back in 2013!
