Size Guide



In the golden age of the Campionissimi cycling jerseys were beautiful things, heavyweight wool, casual tailoring and limited, if any, sponsor logos. Coppi, Bartali and Anquetil looked like film stars with their sunglasses and brylcreemed hair and the sun always seemed to shine.

Sometimes we want to ride our bikes without worrying about being aero, going deep or – frankly – being seen in figure hugging lycra. Our answer is the Café Jersey, technical enough to be practical and stylish enough to be proud of off the bike and in public!

With three pockets, a hidden gripper and subtle reflectivity the Café is certainly at home on the bike but with a relaxed fit, old school zip length and super classic stripes you can stand your round and stand out from the crowd.

Perfect with casual shorts and equally at home with a pair of bibs you can be confident the Café jersey will see you through any ride no matter the destination.

Wish there were more like this

As stated in the title I wish that there were more companies (chapeau included) that would do similar products, a cycling jersey without aero in mind and with pockets to carry stuff, for us commuters out there.
Regarding this particular one;
I like the fabric and the fit and I wish it could be a little longer but you'll only notice it when off the bike. I'm 1.82, with 1.02cm of chest with 74kg and chose a size "M" as per site suggestion, I'm usually a size "L".
Since I only carry a phone on the back pocket the sagging as pointed by others is not very noticeable.
Also like the very subdued logos.
One thing that I don't like is the pointless waterproof zipper in the back pocket, it's hard to open on such a soft fabric.
Would buy more styles or colours if available

Nice fit, good style, bad pockets

Awesome style and nice fit the only problem is the pockets I cant really put anything in them without the jersey becoming 'saggy'

Great relaxed but not floppy fit. Old school and really beautiful. Wonderful quality/material/value combination. Only downside is you really can't put anything heavier then few bills in pockets, the stretch is waaay under your bottom then.

This top looks good when you're sitting posing in a café. However when I put few things in my pockets and rode my bike, the pockets sag and the top swings around, it's very off putting. The bottom of the jersey catches on the seat.

This top has not been design for cycling. Very poor, do not buy!

Cafe jersey white

Love this jersey loads!!,top quality material,nice retro fit and looks real good and turns heads,not a racing jersey at all i just wear it with a pair of casual shorts with my mountain bike for a casual social ride ,this jersey is top value and puts more expensive jersey's to shame,on a note of caution it is "loose fitting" so order next size down from your usual fit

Really beautiful, nice fitting and comfortable

I am really happy with this jersey. After the design changes operated by Chapeau in most of their jerseys, I am really happy to see some of their initial "jersey style" back on their portfolio. The jersey is not only beautiful but also comfortable and technically complete.

Old Friend

This top has a charm of its own. The softness of the material makes it feel like an old friend the moment you first put it on. As in the description, the sizing is a little different, particularly in the length of the tail. Initially I went for a medium which had the relaxed width but which was far too long at the back. I exchanged for a small which for me meant a more club-like fit across the chest but now at least the tail was on my bottom. Having said that - and the reason for 4 not 5 stars - if you put anything of any weight into the pockets, then the stretch lowers the tail further. I found I ended up either sitting on the pockets or hooking the jersey around the saddle.
However the comfort was great and I like the more subtle design. You could wear this jersey out even if you didn't have a bike with you!

For info: I'm 5'9", 69kg

(Btw the colours are burnt orange and black stripes rather than red and white as it appears in the photos.)

Rediscover what riding is about


For a more in depth look at the Cafe jersey see my review above. But this is a lovely thing. Soft and so comfortable. It's not for doing hill reps, but you could. It's for getting out there and riding to enjoy yourself. Ditch Strava, get this, go out for a coffee with mates. Top jersey.

We advise you to compare these flat measurements to a comparable garment (do not compare a jacket to a base layer for example) that you already own and like the fit of to help you work out which size to order from us. However, please remember this is a guide only - 2 garments with same flat dimensions but made of fabrics of different stretch will fit you very differently. If you'd rather buy 2 sizes and send the one back that doesn't fit, this is fine by us!

This is James, he is wearing a Small Cafe Jersey, Medium Club Bibshorts and our tall club socks. The Cafe is loose fitting/casual so James went down a size to his normal jersey size as he prefers the tighter jersey.
