Celeste Green - A Minty green that stands up to the test of time

The core color of this retro jersey is Celeste Green - a color made famous by Bianchi Bicycles.  The garment has three colors, Celeste Green, Black, and a creamy white.  The Celeste green is reminiscent of the Bianchi bicycles of 1979. A very popular bicycle at that time.  

The Bianchi Celeste green has much history behind it with the Italians calling it the "color of Milan's night time sky."  Others say it was the "turquoise eye color" of the former queen of Italy for whom Mr. Bianchi made a custom bicycle.  The truth is anyone's guess.  One likely source of the famous color is that it was a "mixture of wartime surplus paint" that was surprisingly inspiring for riders at the time.  Regardless of its origins, the color continues to evoke the tradition that is Bianchi Bicycles.  The color is unusual and inspiring for riders of the famous Bianchi bicycles.  The origins of the 129-year-old Italian company's marquee color are still a bit of a mystery. "We have no real answer," says David Reed, Bianchi USA's vice president of marketing. "Years have gone by and the stories get more glorified and less truthful." Though it has always been called Celeste (which translates roughly to "sky blue") the green has had a slight variance over the years.  It continues to inspire avid cyclists even today.

    Great jersey. Made with the middle age American male body in mind. Comfortable, not clingy; great for long rides. If they make another color/style, I'm buying it.

    Awesome retro style cycling jersey

    Posted by Jeff on Sep 12th 2017

    Love the color and fit. I don't like the skin-tight jersey, but I also don't like my jersey flapping in the wind.
    This jersey fulfilled both of my likes. Plus it is very stylish.

    These jerseys are high quality and look and feel great! I love that they are made in USA! I wish there were other similar retro color schemes so I could buy those too.

    Great jersey and the retro look is great! Had to go up an overall size - the sleeves seemed a tad short and going up a size got the overall fit with the sleeves being better/ Looks great on and stands out in a good way - really good looking and well made!

    SOOOO Comfortable

    Posted by Mike on May 19th 2017

    As a big guy I had got used to squeezing into cycling clothing that was too tight and too short. I wanted an outfit that would not look out of place at Eroica. The fit was perfect according to the size guide and the jersey (and matching shorts) are so light and well fitting that it is almost like riding naked!

    This jersey fits very well - just slightly loose. Nice quality and the celeste & cream colors match oh so perfect to my new celeste & cream retro steel Bianchi. Gotta love it.
    Thanks Aero Tech!
