My round-up of vintage-style cycling tops was incredibly popular, so I suspect the vintage-style cycling clothing by Tiralento will hit the mark too.
Of course, there are plenty of outlets right now for this kind of stuff, with Magliamo being top of the tree for me. But this label runs it close, not least because of the depth of the range on offer.
Tiralento is a brand created by vintage cycling obsessives (and cyclists of course) with a love of the clothing of a bygone era. They wanted that clothing to be loved once more and as a result, created a range of clothing and footwear worn by race cyclists up until the 1970s. So the Tiralento label was born.
But note that this isn’t budget cycling gear. The clothing made by Tiralento designs are produced using high-quality materials and produced in the same way as the clothing of that bygone era. Yes, we are talking handmade clothing, produced in Italy.
So you do have to pay for it, but that’s not surprising with the amount of work that goes into this gear.
Talking of the gear, the range currently offers cycling tops, shorts, shoes, training jumpers, woollen caps and a nifty vintage training tracksuit, as well as some cycling accessories.
All work for the retro cyclist, but also double up as stylish casual wear for the cycling-loving mod. You can even customise some of the designs, should you want your own wording on the front. That’s another positive of having things handmade to order.
If you want an idea of just what is available, a selection is featured on this page. Those are (working down the page)…
An Italy national team lightweight training jumper (€130) which is available in the same style with other colour options.
Continuing down the page, we have a heavyweight training jumper (again with plenty of colour options) (€140), a cycling tracksuit (available in Italy colours plus more generic shades) (€170), a France national team jersey at the Tour de France (€150) and a long-sleeve Belgium national team jersey at the Tour de France (€130).
Also here is a long-sleeved DDR national team jersey at the World championship (€165), USA national team jersey at the World championship (€125), the Frejus jersey (€175), a long-sleeve Molteni jersey (€180) and a Rainbow ‘Silk’ jersey for €95.
Some impressive cycling shoes as well, like the ‘walking shoes’ for leisure use pictured here. The ones shown in suede go for £205.
