Here's a cycling science project brought to you by Assos. Go ahead and browse through our inventory of vests and pay careful attention to the armholes. You'll notice that most look like jackets with the sleeves lopped off, a vertically oriented cuff. But on the thermal IG.works_teamVest_evo8 Men's vest, the armholes describe deep, sinuous recessions into the upper chest before curving out again to wrap the shoulders and upper back.
This design may not quite look right on a model standing in the typical Assos manner: rigid, stiff, carefully posed in order to foreground the jersey instead of the personality of the guy wearing the piece. But posing, preening—that's not the point of cycling kit. It's about fit in the saddle, and those agro armholes translate to no bunching or restriction while you're in the saddle reaching for the bars.
The material is standard thermal jersey fare as viewed through the Assos design lens. That translates to four different fabrics combined in 13 (lucky you!) separate panels meant to build on the saddle-specific fit embodied by those forward-oriented armholes. The yoke beneath the nape of the neck, the dedicated panels atop the shoulders—these are the hallmarks of a thermal vest built not to stretch to your body but to just fit it.
