It doesn't really matter what Phil is saying, the music of his voice is the appropriate soundtrack for a bicycle race. HTupolev
I've found that properly made cycling clothing lasts longer, fits better, doesn't chafe or flap etc. It's just better. It's hard to find properly made stuff that's also inexpensive. I tend to scour Competitive Cyclist, Jenson, Amazon, Cycling Emporium etc for sales. Sportful, Bioracer and Giordana make the stuff that fits me best. Santini is also really good and a bit cheaper. Some of the Aussie brands like Stolen Goat, Pedal Mafia, Pedla or MAAP are really good. Castelli fits me very well but I've found they use low quality zips and non-durable fabrics. Korean cycling stuff is awesome if you can get it, my mother in law send me stuff from Seoul that I really like. I will support some US-made brands like Ornot, great quality and not absurdly expensive.
Then there's the ridiculous end of the market. Assos? Kitsbow? Brandt Sorenson? $400 jerseys? $65 socks? Give me a break with that stuff.
