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!
This fall, I’ve embraced the hue of the season. Hunter, or safety orange and two brands have done the same: Giro and Rapha, each in their own unique way. A wise man once told me that a *down vest, or jacket could be the difference between an enjoyable ride and an utterly miserable death march.

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!
I hope everyone had a wet, muddy, fun weekend at their local cross races. Here’s a video recap from the Rapha Super Cross event!
One thing I’ve always respected about Rapha is scouting the perfect locations to photograph their seasonal lookbooks. This is deep winter. I.e. the reason I live in Texas.

For the past two days, I’ve been preparing to head back down to Australia for a few weeks. Lauren is there, working again and so I get to spend some more time with my bestest mates. As I was packing this morning, I noticed some color-coordination happening and thought I’d take a minute to shoot these two photos.
These are all products I use and wear on a daily basis. With all the “what kind of _____ is that?” I experience, let me break it down:
Manual for Speed shirt
Rapha Brevet Gillet
Rapha Winter City Riding Merino Socks
Giro Atmos helmet
Giro Limited Empire MTB Shoe
Topo Designs Mountain Shorts
Topo Designs Nesting Pouches
I won’t even begin to lay out all the orange and camo gear I have…
For Autumn / Winter 2013, Rapha revisits some of their classic cold weather gear. My favorites this season are the thermal bibs, the longsleeve brevet jersey and the extensive women’s line. See the full product like at Rapha and check out the lookbook here.
Check out this series that Muc-Off did with Rapha Condor Sharp JLT during the Tour of Britain. It’s a bit long of a watch, but worth it. Besides, I know you’re not actually working on a Friday afternoon…
