Molteni Retro Leisure Sweater

Size Guide
Size Guide: Prendas Ciclismo Leisure Sweaters
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 35in 37in 38.5in 40in 42in 43.5in 45in 46.5in

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.

Hips: Once again with the garment laid flat, measure the width on the bottom hem..

Back: The length at the centre back, from the top of the collar to the bottom of the hem.  Note: We have not included the drop tail as part of this measurement.

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

There was a time when pro riders were given sweaters/track suit tops to wear when off the bike. Back in the day there were no sublimation (printing on fabric) techniques and all the sponsor logos had to be embroidered or in the case of felt lettering, stuck on. We have attempted to replicate this look with modern techniques. The lettering applied to this garment is both embroidery and the unique '3D' which is a combination of embroidered and appliqué. The collar, cuffs and waist are 3 colour stripe knit and the Italian scudetto is an additional detail.

The jacket is intended as a casual garment and is a fleece backed cotton/polyester mix which is what we call 'mid weight' and unlike our cycling jerseys is only a semi form fitting cut which is loose without being baggy, although it will allow other layers to be worn underneath. It`s a perfect for most temperatures, even summer when the evenings can be cool. YKK colour matched zip and slant side pockets complete a good quality and fine looking garment.

The garment is made from a 65% Cotton and 35% Polyester mix to provide the best comfort as well as being a good mix for longevity after repeated machine washes.

We`ve looked all over Europe to find a suitable manufacturer for this project and we are delighted with the results from this Portuguese factory that have made garments for some internationally renowned brands most of whom then decided to move production to the far east to save a few Euro-cents per garment. Portugal`s textile industry has been getting itself back on track despite years of competition from cheaper Asian countries. Quality is definitely not an issue.

A cautionary note on sizing: We`ve been developing a in-depth sizing chart for all of these items, but in the mean time, a rough estimate is to go one size smaller than your current (Italian made) cycling jersey. Additionally, 'Harry' the Prendas mannequin wears a size Medium and he is 6ft tall, 39' chest and 33' waist.
