Just in case anyone would like to see a little film i made on a visit to the MOA/ Nalini factory in italy, have a look here:

http://blog.wiggle.com/2013/04/19/moa-s ... roduction/

They're a great bunch of people, really amazingly hand made still in the face of stiff far eastern opposition and yes, there was still a load of old Carrera denim retro kit knocking about in the nooks and crannies.

Thanks for looking.

Nice film. I read somewhere that they make some of Rapha's kit too.

a pleasure.

Before I actually saw the European production of team kit, I used to think of it like a football shirt and couldn't help thinking it was a rip off at £60 odd. Now having seen how much manual labour, various processes and care and attention, not least to the staff making the stuff, I can't believe they break even for that money.

The work that goes into a pair of MOA made socks is quite incredible. You'd never think it.

:D
