I have found few options for a purple jersey that does not have busy graphics and is not some shade of violet or a more feminine purple. The closest is the Rapha Classic in purple (image below). Last year Vulpine's alpine jersey had what looked like the right shade, but those are no longer in stock. Anyone know of another option for a simple purple jersey?

I missed that one ..... that is the style and color I am looking for. Any issues ordering from the US?

I have a lot of Cafe Du Cycliste stuff and have always been able to get it in the US fine, either from the CDC site or from alwaysriding.co.uk.

I have ordered from the CDC site successfully. It's very nice kit.

Anyone who orders from there should add the merino-blend neck warmer/bandana. Awesome.

One thing to keep in mind when shopping with CDC is their pricing policy. The prices they list in USD are heavily marked up and completely inconsistent with exchange rates. The items should actually be priced MUCH lower than the euro given the market value and that there is no applicable VAT. I contacted them about this received some jerk response about their inability to make any adjustments. I even tried shipping within europe, but they automatically adjusted the currency back to USD based on credit card. Stopped dealing with them since that.

Just for example the purple jersey is $179.00 vs 120.00.

Alwaysriding does direct conversion from the British pound and in the US, we get to avoid VAT. The prices are usually better except for when CDC is running an end of season sale.

This. I've worn that Loulou neck warmer on every ride since, like, December.

And judging by the current weather, will continue to until May.

Bite your tongue... If I had the time I would post an OSU jersey but that is just because my Tigers can't seem to get things figured out - like how to sign and develop a quarterback!
