The USP of this fine top is the 45% Modal com­po­si­tion that’s weaved be­tween 55% cot­ton fi­bres. Modal is spun out of wood pulp from beech-tree clip­pings and so, it’s claimed, is breath­able. It cer­tainly coped with out-of-the sad­dle ef­forts from traf­fic lights, though cot­ton’s not the most breath­able ma­te­rial so don’t ex­pect to­tal fresh­ness. In con­trast to the gilet, that Modal-cot­ton blend flows nicely against the body, not only help­ing to shift sweat to the out­side but also to keep the gilet in place when down on the drops. It’s a qual­ity top that comes in six colours: blue, black, green, red, light and dark grey.
