In my view Aldi should sell bight tops, easier to see, than dark tops. I gather a lot of people do not agree with my view judging by what many people wear or they judge the products in some other way. I generally only buy bright tops, knowing I may use them for cycling at some time, if not bright I would most likely not use it for cycling.
If it's a bright top, I probably won't wear it for anything. I have very pale skin and look pretty rotten in most bright colours - chartreuse yellow especially makes me look rather sickly in its glow. Why should people like me be denied a choice of cycling tops?
I also note that you noticed them, so it seems they were easy enough to see.
And finally, I think it takes a special kind of daft to want to cycle through rural areas camouflaged against the colours of crops and flowers. I wear black - very few crops are black and it contrasts with everything in daylight - and if it's dark, then I switch my bike lights on instead of relying on clothing.
