Nice but 3XL way too small.
I ordered a size large and yes I double checked it's a size large. Blah ha ha, are you kidding me? I'm 5'11" 166lbs and this large wouldn't even come close to zipping up. I've got a good 4 inched to get to where the zippers would attach. AT LEAST 2 sizes too small. Also holding it up to the light the material is fully see through thin. A rip is just waiting to happen. The zipper is plastic and cheap. Shame on you Giordana - never again!
This is a great training jersey, not too tight, not too loose. The zipper is a little clunky, but very nice still. Pockets are in the right places and don't droop. Doesn't bunch up anywhere.
Material feels it could be better.
Unraveling thread from the cuffs and hems and arm elastic that isn't elastic were the first disappointments. The arm holes are uncomfortably small and I'm 162 lbs and 6'1 and ordered a large. Please notice the wrinkles around the upper pecs and arm on the black jersey in the picture above. That doesn't feel good. On the bright side, the jersey looked sharp while unpacking it.
I am fairly tall and lanky, the L jersey was too loose and the Med was a great fit but too short - it tends to ride up easily and doesnt quite stay put. Overall I am pleased with the kit but these are not my go-to jersey/bibs. Still, the quality is there and I feel if I were slightly shorter I would prefer these over most of my kits.
This is a great jersey. The fit is slim as all Italian jerseys but not a second-skin feel. The material is light and comfortable without being super fancy and bringing the price up. The sleeves are a good length and not too long, not too short. The body is a touch short for taller skinny riders but works fine if you're wearing bibs.
im a bigger slim rider.
this jersey seems real high quality.
but....the arm, armpit, chest area is so tight it makes it completely uncomfortable. this was an xl size.
if you have any muscle development.....look elsewhere
I'm 6", 215 and ordered the XL. It's a good fit around the torso--no bunching and isn't skin tight and the length is almost perfect. However, I can't recommend this unless you've got thin arms (like a racing pro) b/c the grip is about 3/4" wide and fits very tightly around my biceps (which aren't like Popeyes). I like my Sport Elite jersey better which is more breathable and not restrictive in any way and costs less on this site.
the jersey is made real well with a lot of ventilation to keep you kool when it get hot and humid outside
This jersey has many features only seen on super high price point jerseys. The stitching is impeccable and the variety of fabric make this a performance ready piece. The material is adequately comfortable, but robust. The Silverline pieces from Giordana are perfect for the all around cyclist who wash their kits on a regular basis. This jersey will last the long miles and be ready for the next ride.
The fit is more spacious than race pieces. The shoulders fit true to size, but the mid section is a bit more relaxed. Oh that Fluo color is awesome, keeps the cars at bay.
Tired of old, shabby, out of style jerseys? Need to up your game in the cool factor? Wife telling you that you stink, or need more sunblock? Look no further, as the Giordana Silverline jersey has you covered! Excellent color options and styles, so you will stay visible, and also snag a compliment or two just on looks. THEN people will compliment on how fit you look due to the excellent cut of the jersey. Definitely a next to skin fit, but a comfortable next to skin. I am generally a large T-shirt, and XL jersey in most Italian brands. I went XL in this with good results, but could probably fit a Large for a more aggressive fit no problem. They are cut a little long, so coverage around the mid section is great, and the sleeves are a little longer too, but very nice feeling. Do you have issues with the sun, need sunblock, or limited to time exposed to it? Well good news there, is that ALL Giordana jerseys are UPF 50+ rated, so say hello to better/longer summer rides with great protection. Did I mention the jersey also breathes great? Well if not, the jersey breathes great!! If you need a new jersey, this is definitely a great option to consider.

This is one of the very few non-race cut jerseys I'll wear. After 8 or 9 rides, I'm prepared to double down on my initial assessment. The Silverline collection is excellent. Giordana cuts this jersey perfectly. It's not skin-tight, but it doesn't have the dreaded t-shirt feel that plagues so many non-race jerseys. The materials, premium hand, and aesthetic delivery far in excess of their price point, and I can say with a good deal of confidence that if you pull the trigger on anything from the Silverline collection, you won't regret it.
Let me start by stating the Silverline is a quality jersey for what it accomplishes. You'll ride it day in and day out and you won't give it a second thought, but eventually you'll find yourself wanting a bit more.
The fabric has a decent hand and does well at keeping moisture wicked away, but the looser fit does not manage to keep good contact with your skin. I suggest pairing it with a baselayer if you really want a productive moisture management system.
Overall I like the jersey for the price, but I am irritated by the cut around the arms. I found it cut into my armpits and created some discomfort after a while, but your results may vary.
Great inexpensive jersey. I like the quality of it a lot and it will certainly last. It's not quite as light as I like, but it still breathes pretty well. Just not something I would wear on those real hot days. The pockets do a good job holding your gear. Great match with the Silverline bibs.
The SilverLine classic represents the best value jersey we carry at the moment. Now, when I use the word "value," I don't want you to think about the giant bag of off-brand Lucky Charms. I want you to imagine feeling incredibly satisfied with an experience, considering the barriers to entry. For $100, I guarentee that you will be incredibly satisfied with the SilverLine jersey (and the rest of the SilverLine series as well.) The quality of construction and premium hand are extremely impressive. Fit is pretty standard for Giordana, and falls somewhere between slim relaxed cut. I wear a small in all of their other pieces, and the Silverline series fit true to size. For reference, I wear a medium Assos jersey, medum Castelli, medium Sportful, and small Giro.
Because of my size (5'9", 240 lbs), I often have problems finding cycling clothing that fits me properly. Now, just because my body is more about fatness than fitness these days doesn't mean that I don't want high-end technical fabrics and a body hugging fit to help optimize the fabric doing its best job... it doesn't matter to me what you think I look like in Lycra, it only matters about how comfortable I am when riding.
At first try-on, the Silverline range from Giordana is quite comfortable; good chamois in the bibs, and I was able to put on the bibs and jersey without too much struggle over my thighs or my belly.
One of the things I really like about the fit is that the jersey is relatively long, which means not much of a gap between the bottom of the jersey and the top of the shorts. There is a nice closed mesh panel right at the base of the back just above the pockets and similar panels under the armpits to help vent excess heat, and subtle reflective accents on the cuffs, below the pit mesh panels, and on the pockets for additional visibility when riding in low-light conditions.
The extra length in the jersey can also be found in the bibs, but in this case the extra length is also one of the downfalls for me.
I have long femurs for my height, so I've always liked bibs with longer inseams. As is typical with a lot of cycling clothing, as you increase the size of the garment, the length often increases proportionately ... and in the XXL bibs I have, the inseam measures out at 12.5", just about an inch too long from what would ideally suit me. If I were 2 or 3 inches taller, with the same girth, I think the XXL bibs would fit me perfectly. If I were only 170 lbs. instead of 240 lbs. I think a Large would also have a suitable inseam length ... but at my current height/weight combination, I do wish the legs were a little shorter.
On initial impressions however, the leg length issue is the only downside, and that's obviously particular to my own body shape. I have yet to decide if the extra length is something I will be able to ignore when riding, or if it's going to be something that bugs me. On the bright side, however, we often have customers looking for bibs with longer inseams, and now I know for sure that Giordana fits that bill quite well.
The jersey looks and feels good.
Just right for my base miles
I bought the Silverline bibs in large, and they were almost too small. I bought the shirt in XL, based on that and the size chart, and it's just annoyingly close to being too big. I like a slim aero fit, myself.
But all that aside, this is a very nicely designed shirt with great fitting sleeves and a sturdy zipper (that many much-more-expensive shirts don't have). It's great for my fat season, at least.
