Cycling jerseys get a face lift

Britain's Rapha brand joined cycling enthusiast and designer Paul Smith to create a special-edition jersey to commemorate the first two stages of next month's Tour de France, taking place for the first time on English soil, Details says.

My favorite jersey is one my father gave me a few years ago during a cycling vacation in Northern Italy. It's red, black and white, and based on an Art Deco travel poster for steam engine train rides between Milan and Venice. The maker is Giordana. I'll wear it when we ride in southern France this fall.
