Mars / Flandria Retro Jersey - Short Sleeve

Size Guide
Size Guide: Santini Short Sleeve Jerseys
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 Large 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 Up to 32in 32-34in 34-36in 36-38in 38-40in 40-42in 42-44in 44-46in 46-48in 48-50in 50-52in 52-54in 53-55in

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.

Whilst Roger De Vlaeminck is no doubt most famous for wearing the bold, iconic and unmistakable Brooklyn retro jersey, before that he was in the Flandria - Mars team for the 1969 to 1971 seasons. De Vlaeminck won his national championships as well as Het Volk, Fleche-Wallone, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège during those three seasons.

We are delighted to be able to offer this new version for Spring/Summer 2016 and we must thank both Flandria Bikes and Mars Chocolate UK for their cooperation with this project.

We first sold the Flandria de Clerk jersey in 2008, which was followed by the Flandria Mars in 2011. It gives us great satisfaction to introduce a new version for the 2016 with a refreshed design whilst keeping the jersey as accurate as possible (ie no full zip cutting through the team name). Additionally, we've added a few modern touches that add value, like the additional zipped rear pocket and internal silicon gripper as well as keeping the essential three rear pockets.

We quite often trawl the Internet for archive photos of cycling's golden age and actually Flandria Bikes have a fabulous history section that is well worth a visit. They've also done a tremendous amount of great work in researching their heros; riders like Briek Schotte, Herman Van Springel, Freddy Maertens and of course Roger De Vlaeminck.
