Salsiccionewrote a review of Castelli Fama Long Sleeve Jersey on April 18, 2012
Just got the FAMA Jersey and I am not a FAN-A.
Great fabric, feels smooth and comfortable to the skin. As most of the Castelli gear the quality of the fabric seems pretty high.
Overall some nice details to the jersey like the rubber grippers, and the graphics look great.
There is a light fleece layer on the inside that looks like it would do a pretty good job knocking the chill out of the air on a cool morning but not sure if it would do much on a 40 degree day.
First off- I ordered the yellow expecting a fairly bright yellow like the photo. Unfortunately, the color is a washed out yellow closer to a washed out "you're in" color.
Second I am not tall and bit carry more girth. I am 5-7 with a big frame and close to 190. I know, I know, but still other Castelli stuff like the GPM in xxl jersey fits well- maybe even a touch big. With this one it was a bit short in front, very tight throughout, with long sleeves that were very loose fitting.
Overall I would probably have kept it but the horrible yellow color tells me it would never really grow on me so it is going back.
