    Hi all,do you know of any suppliers that don't add the word retro then charge you £90 for the privilige?
    I am never gonna make it into lycra for personal reasons so just want a good old fashion top to go with my camouflage shorts sandles and black socks

    Planet X do wool in their Holdsworth range

    The orange might look bad with your other attire however!

    There are other options if you Google around,

    Dedicated quality cycling kit is rarely cheap and can still be a tight/sport fit regardless of the material

    Could also look at outdoorsy shops like Mountain Warehouse

    Be aware, cheap Merino can be scratchy

    Chapeau do a looser fitting cotton 'cafe jersey' that might suit.

    A woollen zip top.

    Sounds like a cardigan to me.
