A jersey is a piece of wollen or cotton
clothing with sleeves worn as a
pullover; this is to say,
it does not open at the front as does a
cardigan. It is usually
close-fitting and machined knitted in contrast to a
guernsey that is more often hand knit in a thicker cloth.
Alternatively, a jersey as used in sport
is the name of a shirt worn by a member of a team, usually
oversized, typically depicting the athlete's name and team
number as well as the team's
logotype or corporate sponsor. Notably, jerseys of specific
colour or pattern represent certain statuses in
cycling - such as the
yellow jersey of the leader of the Tour de France.
