A classically styled jersey for cooler conditions

Fusing the classic jersey designs of the early 20th century with modern performance technology, the Classic Long Sleeve Tricolour Jersey features three stitched panels of material to symbolise the ‘Tricolore’ flag. Harking back to a time before printed logos and neon colours, the Classic Long Sleeve Tricolour Jersey takes style inspiration from the earliest cycling jerseys.

Made using a comfortable and breathable merino wool blend, and traditional twin needle stitching - a technique used to create a precise hem in stretch fabric - the Classic Long Sleeve Tricolour Jersey is ideal for rides in cool weather. A Rapha logo is embroidered onto the chest, and an embroidered ‘Tricolore’ logo features on the back pocket. Cuffs and hem use a traditional rib knit which, coupled with a lock-down front zip keep the jersey secure while riding.


  • Twin needle stitching detail to create a precise, neat hem
  • Cord holes for headphones
  • Merino-blend body fabric for comfort in a wide range of conditions
  • Merino-rich ribbed cuff and hem combine for warmth and comfort
  • Concealed zip pocket for essential storage
  • Lockdown zip to hold the zip in position
  • Zip guard to prevent neck chafing

  • Wash with non-bio detergent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent autumn jersey I bought this for an October cycling holiday in Northumberland and it was ideal, looks stylish and is also very practical. Wore it with the Pro Team (summer) base layer in temperatures of 10 C and it was plenty warm enough, it would work in conditions a good few degrees colder with a merino base. I wanted more visibility in low light so used it with the brevet gilet, which folds up compactly enough to go in one of the jersey's pockets when not needed. The navy jersey and the navy/ high vis pink gilet are a good colour pairing. I am 6 ft 1 in tall, 160 pounds, 38 inch chest and the medium size in both jersey and gilet were a good comfortable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooler weather jersey I tend to wear short sleeve jerseys with arm warmers when the temperature dips. But this jersey, with its gradations of color, looked so awesome I decided to give it a try. It’s got a true Rapha classic fit, which suits me perfectly. (I can’t do pro team.) I also really like the ample sleeve length, since the last thing you want is cold wind getting in under sleeves that don’t overlap your gloves. I’m a huge fan of merino, since it’s really comfortable, breathable, and warm when you need it to be warm. I’ve been wearing the jersey over a Rapha long sleeve merino base layer and under a Rapha softshell gilet. (Does Rapha even make that any more?)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very smart, everso slightly too short at front IMO Very smart-looking/classy long-sleeve top. Have worn with skimpy base layer and lightweight jacket in 3-5 degrees and was perfect. Pockets easy to reach and perfect stretch and depth. Nice long sleeves, perfect cuff elasticity and width. The only thing I would change is to make the front just a wee bit longer. Not for any technical reason other than what I am used to. It's my first Rapha jersey so it may be the typical cut, which I am sure I can get used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish comfortable and practical! This jersey is fantasic. High quality material which fits perfectly (normal cut, not like the pro team stuff). Very stylish and comfortable for long rides! What else could you ask for? Rapha well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes you feel special. It's my second purchase from Rapha, I bought the large for my chest size and I can still get a base layer underneath, which is what I wanted for cold weather riding, i am 5'7" tall and was concerned that the sleeves would be to long, after trying it on I would have been happier if the sleeves were an inch shorter but you can't please all the people all the time, so I kept it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great piece Very stylish and feels great on. I did have to return a medium and upsize to a large, although I wear a medium in the classic jersey. I like the classic styling of it, without logos and decals all over it as on so much gear today.

I am 6ft 3inches and worried this will come up too short but love it? Could you advise me of something with a bit of length?

Asked by: GHaynes
Hi, this jersey should be a good option, as would jerseys in our Brevet range.

Hi there! I used to have the classic short sleeve jersey in a (m) but I always found it a bit on the looser side - I think fit between the s-m so I'm curious if I should go with the (s) vs the (m) the discription says that the cut has also been improved?

Asked by: Chris21
Hi, the fit of this jersey (which is based on the Classic Jersey II) has a slightly closer fit than the older jersey which you owned. We recommend you try a medium again as this is likely to fit you better now. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Hi, is this inclined to shrink or stretch over time? 

Asked by: Willm
Hi, this jersey will holds its size over time. Please always wash the jersey at 30 degrees celsius using non-bio detergent to ensure this happens.

Hi, what's the min / max temp range for wearing this? (sans gilet!) Many thanks  S

Asked by: Stephenc1973
Hi, it is hard to advise an exact temperature range as this is always dependent on your own temperature regulation and exertion level. However, this jersey can be used in a minimum temperature of 4/ 5 degrees celsius and up to 15/ 16 degrees celsius depending on your choice of base layer.

What is the fit of this jersey? Is it tending toward super skinny or more generous all-day comfort? 

Asked by: SeanS5000
Hi, this jersey has a fit in line with our Classics range. It is designed for all-day comfort but would work just as well for short rides. The cut is not as close as our Pro Team range.
