This jersey was lost in 1955 years and was not discovered for another 60 years. The original jersey is now housed in Museo Ghisallo, where it is preserved as a true relic of the cycling world. It can only be viewed. Never touched. Never worn again. The only exact replica in the world:Made with exactly the same materials, with the same machinery, by the same designer, and to the same specifications, this replica jersey is truly one of a kind.

Elda De Marchi herself has made this replica jersey on a semi-automatic warp-knit, 12-gauge vintage machine. This is the same machine that was used in the 1950s to make the original. The jersey is 100% Merino extra-fine wool in the nominal 2-32 tile.

Everything – from the material to the shape, colors, and proportions – have been recreated. The original jersey was tailored for Fausto Coppi himself, and Elda has kept note of these measurements for all these years. The original “rainbow” stripe colors have been replicated as they were 66 years ago – before they were altered by sweat, sun, and countless washings – with the non-chemically-treated, off-white base.

The construction is tubular with no side seams, and the buttoned shirt collar has been doubled exactly like on the original one. The three classic cargo back pockets are also individually buttoned, and there are no labels or markings other than the manufacturer label placed inside the front bottom hem.

Sleeves, collar, and pockets are stitched to the body using the very same thread on the same sewing machines as in 1953, perfectly preserved by De Marchi today.

The is the only jersey of its kind that will ever be made.
