designing a suit for commuting is a superb idea!
i like their way of doing things different/innovating.

Tru dat! Wearing a Rapha suit on your fixie to pop down the King's Road for a copy of Rouleur? Words fail me. I long for the old days when cycling was not so cool.

Shall expect to see you sporting the Rapha suit at work funded from the megabucks from the new job- I'm sure you'd look very impressive!

The lack of bonuses in the city may reduce the number of potential more-money-than-sense muppets out there to take advantage of that revolutionary piece of kit.

The mind boggles :roll:

Unlikely as I'm a died in the wool Primark priced shopper.


Rapha produce some great stuff but then go beyond parody with a whole range of stupid Life Style stuff - this suit (seriously, who can really spend £3k on a suit to cycle to work?), a Smythson calf bound training diary (£200 if memory serves), a badger haired brush leg shaving kit (£150ish), a £300 kit bag and then the £50 silk scarf.

Secretsofthepeleton have it nailed.
