Assos DB.2 activityPolo LS $149.95
How can you resist Struzzobaby?
The 'D' and the 'B' in Assos' new DB.2 activityPolo LS refers to 'Dopo Bici,' which translates to 'after bike.' That's exactly what this shirt was built for, as it represents the perfect balance of style, comfort, and functionality that we've grown accustomed to from Assos. The casual shirt brings the best fabrics and fit from the Swiss apparel gurus, giving us a new take on what's possible in a polo shirt design.
The DB.2 activityPolo LS was constructed from an exceptionally soft, breathable, and high-stretch fabric. This material is not unlike the lightweight fabrics used to build Assos' world-class jerseys, as it was engineered to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable with its 'soft-touch,' composition. The DB.2 was also treated with an anti-odor application, ensuring that you stay fresh and smelling great wherever your off-the-bike exploits happen to take you.
Differing from your favorite Assos jersey, however, the DB.2 incorporates a more spacious paneling design built specifically for your daily life off of the bicycle. The fabric panels were joined in a way that contours to your body without restricting movement. Accordingly, separate shoulder panels were cut in a shape that mimics your anatomical structure, which aids in a fit that greets your upper body better than most slim-cut polo shirt designs. Meanwhile, a thin collar is pulled together with the polo's sleek 1/4-length front zipper. The cuffs and hem were built with similar profiles, featuring narrow bands that lightly contour the wrists and torso.
A slight drop tail provides extra coverage in the back, and a contrasting 'locker-loop' rounds out the rear. Finishing off the front of the DB.2, Assos incorporated a single right-side zippered pocket, with small Assos logos at the chest and hem.
The Assos DB.2 activityPolo LS is available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR and in the colors Almatysky, Black, Blue, Elastic Orange, Fidji, Piton Green, Red, Struzzobaby, Titan, White, and Yellow.

great casual shirt
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm 5'10", 165-lbs and the Large fits perfectly. great material/construction that you would expect from Assos, style is fairly conservative but a little unique (single side pocket). light-weight, so not for super cold weather, but a great over-shirt when you want sleeves without a full-blown jacket. very, very comfortable and a decent deal at the sale price.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This shirt is sporty yet fairly fashionable, with a unique look to it. Very comfortable and slim-fitting. The material has a slight elasticity. The fabric, stitching and the overall construction appear to be high quality. The nice-looking seams on the sleeves that can be seen in the picture actually protrude outwards a bit. Overall, the collar, the cuffs and all of the other little details give this thing a neat, modern and somewhat-futuristic look. There is a small, round pocket on the right with a zipper enclosure which is not all that visible in the pictures.
I wear this around the house, or if I hop on the bike to go get a coffee or something in the morning but don't feel like wearing the normal race-fit Assos tops that only feel comfortable in the riding position.
The most interesting thing about this shirt is that it smells like the inside of a new car.
Great casual shirt
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a great casual shirt for the cycling enthusiast. In today's day and age of exercise clothing being the in thing, it's nice to have something to wear other than Lululemon that everyone else isn't wearing. This is really nice quality and nice weight to wear over a t-shirt with shorts or other casual pants, like the Castelli Corso Pants. Got it in two colors.
