Essential item No.1. The Rapha+Paul Smith shirt.

July 27, 2011

I love this shirt, It’s fantastic. Since I first laid my hands on my Rapha+Paul Smith windproof shirt I have been using it nonestop, bar the washing.

This smart, highly technical jacket/shirt hybrid is made from the same fabric as the Rapha Wind Jacket. It has a water-resistant treatment to repel sudden showers and when paired with a Rapha base layer, is all you need for fast summer riding in town.

Seriously, it’s all of that and then some. The versatility of this shirt is second to none and that, my friends pleases me. I have it on right now, back from a short cycle ride to my local store, complete with a sweet potato and a packet of couscous in the rear pockets. I love it. I can now leave the bag at home.

Rapha’s latest collaboration with Paul Smith sees the classic Grand Tour Gloves given a sartorial twist. Featuring the English designer’s signature stripe, the multi-coloured pattern is used on the piping of these black leather race mitts. This limited edition piece was designed for the Favourite Shirts exhibition, a celebration of cycling jerseys featuring Rapha and Rouleur photography, held at the Paul Smith shop in Tokyo.

Please note the gloves are an extremely limited edition and only 20 pairs are available

The Rapha Condor Professional Cycling Team, home to the current men’s national road race champion, today announced the signing of three new sponsorship deals that will bring some household names to their distinctive jersey. Sharp Electronics, Paul Smith Jeans and Malmaison Hotel Group will be supporting the team for the remainder of 2009.

The deals mark a watershed in cycling sponsorship and the sport, with a number of premier household brands entering a market that has traditionally been dominated by names from within the industry and lesser known brands. The support and interest from such cool brands is a real breakthrough.
