3M Caverni is a Florence-based company that had been making cycling tops for longer than anyone cares to remember. Many of these makers packed up when professional and serious cyclists moved to lycra, but not this one. They carried on making the gear and judging by what you see online, didn’t hike the prices when retro cycling gear came back in.

So classic cycling designs for a reasonable price. Cheaper than a Fred Perry polo, for a start.

The company does make team jerseys and national jerseys, but they are a little more pricey. The value and the appeal is in the more generic tops. The kind you could wear for cycling or use for more casual wear too.

Images of a number of those are shown on the page here, all with subtly changing details, but all very much from the same mould. So different colours, different tipping, perhaps even different colours or pocket options. But all cycling tops based on clothing worn in the middle of the 20th century.

As for the price, the majority are around the €44 mark, with some rising as high as €55. All are available to buy directly from eBay and all seem to show worldwide.
