I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour – Emanuelle Alt
Despite appreciating the odd splash of colour, usually on other people, my clothing colour palette is what some might describe as… well, lacking.
Much to Victoria’s amusement, my off-bike wardrobe is an embarrassingly tri-partite colourway with shades of grey, blue and black – no others shall pass!
As you might expect, my on-bike uniform adheres to similarly strict parameters; only recently have I branched out and allowed Velobici’s Maroon Rene jersey to disrupt my equilibrium – it is a beautiful thing (and looks great with black).
With all that in mind, I decided to bring you a run-down of my favourite black cycling jerseys for 2017. There are some stunners in here – be prepared to part with some cash…
