I enjoyed the article as I recently discovered Prendas and didn't know much about them. I bought some very nice Santini Giro d'Italia kit from them at much better prices than the bigger stores. However, I am always drawn to exclusive hard to find items, which Prendas have in abundance, and the bigger stores rarely stock.
The only other store I've come across with a similar attitude to exclusive kit at a great price is the German store TrikotExpress but as Prendas are British, I would always check them out first. Having said that though Prendas and TrikotExpress were extremely helpful during my transactions. Andy at Prendas communicated by email personally, which I really liked and he applied a discount without me even asking. It definitely means I will buy from them again.
I can see why Wiggo likes their stuff as there's lots of retro jerseys and a number of Mod styled items, which I am sure he appreciates.

Brilliant supplier! First stop for gloves and socks. Fantastic, personal service. Glad to see the guys getting the recognition in the well-written article.

If Prendas have it I will buy it from them, they stock Etxeondo which I like and not many others seem to have. It seems slightly chaotic and not as slick as the big boys but is efficient nonetheless and that is oddly part of the attraction. If not then Parkers, for components - especially Campagnolo, are as good and I get 15% off at Wiggle so they are my 'everyday' store for quick and easy purchasing although they are not as good as they used to be.It's not your destination that counts, it is the glory of the ride.
