It probably has something to do with the fact you cannot go out and buy proper biking clothes that DOESN'T have a bunch of pro-looking sponsorship type b.s. all over it. Just a guess.
Nope, not at all.
The pro stuff is much more expensive. The blank stuff is cheap (Nashbar, REI, etc).
Don't confuse club kits (legit) and pro kits (poseurs).
Both have sponsors and look like "racing kits".
