Size Guide: Santini Full Zip 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:

There is a strong affinity between cyclists and coffee, Rocket Espresso is a producer of some of the finest Italian handmade espresso machines, so why not celebrate that connection with this beautiful full-zip jersey whilst supporting young riders who are very grateful recipients of grants from the Dave Rayner Fund.



Back in 2009, Rocket Espresso produced a limited edition "Giro d'Italia Cento Anni" domestic coffee machine.

Only 100 were produced (ALL OF WHICH HAVE LONG SOLD OUT) and it was a "must have" for Prendas as it was a thing of beauty and we have long been associated with all things Giro and Santini of Bergamo, the current manufacturer of the Giro D'Italia leader jerseys. Rapha must have also had the same thought as they also own one of these machines.

Mick's quest for this beautiful machine brought him into contact with Andrew Meo, a New Zealander and keen cyclist who is a partner at Rocket Espresso of Milano. Mick's many trips to Italia resulted in many lunches with Andrew and cycling was always high on the list of things to discuss.

Andrew is a keen racing cyclist himself and although he is too modest to brag about it, he was a regional and national champion in his age group which is no mean feat in the world of Italian amateur cycle racing as it is extremely competitive at every level. His son Felix is also showing promise on the track and the road.

There is a strong affinity between cyclists and coffee and this is very evident in the growth of cycling cafe culture in the UK. Fast forward to February 2014 and a visit to Rocket Espresso and the inevitable lunch resulted in Mick approaching Andrew about a collaboration with Rocket Espresso on a cycle jersey bearing the name of this esteemed manufacturer. This was not a business meeting by any means but a relaxed affair that gradually came to fruition with the help of Fergus at Santini and now "ecco qua", here is the result.

Like I said, there was now real structure to the financial arrangement and it was an organic process. Andrew was happy to let Prendas do the sales and he would take a few jerseys for himself, his son and cycling friends and associates. With regard to commission he was happy to make a donation to a worthy cause. We floated the idea of the David Rayner Fund which he thoroughly approved of wholeheartedly.

Hence, we will now donate £10.00 (GB Pounds) to the David Rayner Fund for every Rocket Espresso jersey sold which is every bit as beautiful as the espresso machines that they produce.

The donation is a result of Rocket waiving a royalty charge for using the name and a donation from Prendas as we are already involved as a supporter with the Dave Rayner Fund cotton cycling cap.
