If you’re the type to ride your bike anywhere and everywhere but want to arrive in style, the Rapha City Collection might be for you. The collection offers versatile urbanwear combining Rapha’s performance expertise with tailoring and aesthetics suited for everyday living.
New this year are updated pants, an Oxford shirt, a short-sleeve polo and a windproof wool jacket. There are nearly 170 combinations of pants to choose from, including multiple lengths, waist sizes, leg trims and fabrics from traditional cotton chinos to U.S.-spun cotton denim with a polyester lycra mix. Prices range from $150 to $220 per pair.
The 100-percent cotton Oxford shirt was designed with riding in mind, including a drop-tail hem, stretch across the back and side panels, and hidden buttons to keep your collar flat while pedaling hard into the wind. Retail is $140.
The Essential Polo is a cotton-polyester blend made in Japan and designed to be quick-drying. Retail is $120.
The new, windproof wool jacket features a cinch cord at the hem, a concealed front zipper, front and rear pockets, subtle reflective details and a Polyester panel in the front to protect you from the wind. Retail is $320.
The Rapha City Collection also features shorts, socks, gloves, backpacks, sunglasses and base layers.
