  • I freakin' love the Rapha packaging. Something as small as a merino hat gets dressed to the nines.

  • i really like my rapha socks... but it seems the gf likes them more and has stolen them :(

  • I was asked in the changing rooms if that was a Rapha top I was wearing. I meekly replied it was but that I do try and avoid Rapha for the commute as I find it a bit poseur. He then pointed to my hat, oops, my shorts, more oops, my gloves, bugger, he did not spot the socks.

    I am DJ and I claim my five pounds.

  • My boss gave me a Rain Jacket for my birthday today.

    Happy days..

  • Back on with Winter Jersey this morning - that's the 5th time I've worn it - nice but pricey

  • From the always magnificent Jens Voigt Army blog

    *Our January jaunt to the bucolic wonderland of Vernonia was truly profound. It had all of the elements that one has come to expect of a Jahvahaah Internationale adventure. Photos of coffee. Photos of exhaustion. Photos of us riding towards the camera. Photos of us riding away from the camera. Photos of us celebrating ourselves while looking tired and eating gas station food.

    But more that that. It’s that we did it together… without you. Because that’s what building our luxury brand is all about. Us doing things without you. And then asking you to buy the things that make you look like you did it with us.

  • I'm okay. I do my own things.

    Me thinks the lady doth protest too much...

    In how many years?

    Flogged mine on ebay. Useless piece of kit.

  • Wore the 3/4 shorts on the ride to work today. Great stuff. Anyone know if there are any major differences between the new ones waiting release? I'd like another pair... but at $200 could probably wait for a sale.

  • The only thing I noticed was that the little button straps at the bottom are no longer houndstooth. Nor is the strengthened belt loops.

  • Rapha shipped today the wind jacket i ordered on sunday, but still not the softshell which i ordered on friday.
    Anyway, i could probably have it tomorrow but because i paid only for standard not express delivery rapha needs to punish me.

    really bad service

    There's a lot of orders getting processed daily.

  • Currently in my basket: 2 3/4 bibs, 1 softshell and 1 gilet.

    I can more than justify the bibs and the gilet, but somebody tell me why the softshell is better than my Reebook jacket with detachable sleeves?

    Rapha classsic look better than Reebok classic?

    since November - it is a bit niche

  • Rapha classsic look better than Reebok classic?

    I have to say 'YES' :-).

  • Hmm lost my merino hat. Damn god knows where that's gone. I know I won't need it for a few months now (hopefully) but that's besides the point.

  • have you checked your head? I often put my glasses up there and then forget where I left them

  • You just made me check that I had my hat in my bag.

  • I found Rapha just after xmas, ended spending more with them than I had spent in the last three years combined...

    I'm a bit of a slut around Rapha.

  • anyone ever buy their jeans also at 150quid are they in any way worth it?

  • The jeans fit me very strangely. I spent less than half on a pair of swrve jeans and am quite pleased.

  • +1 for the Swrve jeans, got the skinny ones about a week ago and very pleased with them. Can't compare them to the Rapha ones, but I do prefer my Swrve 3/4 skinny shorts over my Rapha fixed shorts, fit-wise anyways

    Right I need a Gilet, the Rapha ones look nice, but pricey. Not sure between the lighter one or the softshell, else there's a slew of decent gilets at about 30-40 folding, should I pay the extra for the Rapha ones? After loving my softshell all winter, got a hankering after the softshell gilet for those spring mornings and fast descents

  • Also worth checking out Muxu jeans. £80 and I'm very pleased with mine.

    Sizing is screwed though so order a size down
