The Donkey Jersey
Normally we try to keep the DL on the DL, but with that donkey staring at us all day long, we just had to design one that gave him some props. This is about pride of heritage: donkeys are loyal, unassuming and hard working. It will be your always ready companion for every time you head out the door tired, when the conditions suck, or you just plain don' feel like it.

This short sleeve jersey looks great in black and sports the brand colors. The donkey is peaceful and awaiting the days mission on the road. Don't fight your identity, don't think you are too cool to wear a jersey with a donkey on it, embrace it and roll.
Pictures show the long sleeve prototype, the short sleeve jersey is the same design and this is what is for sale currently.
Sizing: DL Short Sleeve Jerseys are designed for cyclists looking for a more pro or race fit jersey. They are designed to be snug, but never tight (due to the Italian mesh panels on the sides and back). They will not cut off your circulation, but if you are looking for something baggy, this is probably not the right jersey (or order 2 sizes too big).
The white fabric is the ultimate lightweight material, white to reflect the sun, supple, durable (mountain biker test group selected it for its non snagging properties), and breathable. White is so Pro, keep it clean and ride clean. If you crash give it to your kid brother and get a new one.
The Black fabric is the Rouleur, a bit thicker than the white with a touch less stretch and a cool crown pattern. Black and will attract the sun as well as the opposite sex, but fashion hurts so shut up and stop bitching. Remember black is thinning.
Sleeves: the sleeves are long on the short sleeve jersey, they are designed to cover 75% of your biceps. We did this on purpose; we love the feel and the look.
Some people have requested shorter sleeves for skin tanning reasons. We named our hats after a skin cancer survivor, our goal is not more sun exposure but a bad ass looking jersey. Our general stance is that looking cool on a bike is way more important than increasing the risk of skin cancer.
When Henry Ford asked people what they wanted they told him a faster horse.
