With the success of the Rapha Raeburn line earlier this year, my friends at the Rapha North America office reached out to me for a different kind of press. I was very impressed with what the first Raeburn line accomplished: high end, performance cycling wear, manufactured in the UK and developed by one of the UK’s most renown fashion designers, Christopher Raeburn.
Check out my interview with Christopher and his brother Graeme Raeburn for Rapha below!
From the Supporter, to the Rookie, the Urbanite, the Racer and the Dandy, Rapha has put together a series of holiday gift guides on their site. I love the illustrations!

If you’ve been paying attention to West America, you would have seen that Jordan Hufnagel has sold all of his frame building tools and is heading to Patagonia with James Crowe, his shop mate. Before they leave, however, they’re finishing up some projects with US manufacturers. One of those companies is Danner Boots. Here’s a video lookbook the guys helped put together.
All I have to say is: rope swing.
Year after year, the Rapha City Riding line expands and evolves into a full range of practical garments. My favorite this year is the Merino Gilet and of course, the Town Gloves. See the full lookbook at Rapha. You can also purchase the new City Riding line at Rapha.cc.

Benny Gold and I have gotten to know each other over the years through various outlets, one of which being the track bike scene in SF. Back in the mid-2000′s Benny was designing logos for numerous bike shops and brands, including Mash and City Grounds. Since then, he’s been focusing almost exclusively on his brand. Each season, look books are essential in a brand’s marketing and while I was in SF, he wanted me to shoot some photos. I don’t really do lookbooks, so it was something different from my day to day shooting style.
These are some photos from the Guerrero Collection Look Book, see more at Benny Gold and check out the Guerrero Collection line here.
