Is that an earlier pre-lycra version of the TA kit, orange with 3 maroon bands?
Yes, from the very late 70s/early 80s made by Tudor Sports.  The 3 coloured bands were stitched in, so the stitching tended to burst when trying to remove a sweaty top - after a few years of course.  That one, modelled by Mac, is in remarkably good condition.

And the joint winners of the longest track stand are the TA (again). I love the stance of the at ease tricyclist none of that leaning with one foot on the ground malarky

Lurking at the bottom of the cycle kit drawer.  positive Re-stitched multiple times as per Tatanab's comment and now with holes in all the pockets, hence it not being worn for ages. Museum piece? (Like it's owner  Very Happy)

Very nice, I bet it was inspired by trike tyre tracks, Adidas must owe the TA millions in royalties!
