Rapha Bespoke Cycling Suit by Timothy Everest

England’s Rapha company looks to fill a niche with their latest project. Recognizing that more and more gentleman cycle to and from their offices – many of them in suits that are not fell fit for the cycling commute, Rapha has teamed with Savile Row tailor, Timothy Everest on a suit that is “at home both on the bike and the in the boardroom.” We should add that the entire suit is a bespoke product and will only be available through fittings.

“Because Tim is a pretty active and knowledgeable cyclist, the details for fit on and off the bike have been really well thought through- the facing buttons up for clearance when you pedal, the cuffs flip down and the collar pops and fastens up. The back has been built so it gives when you get down on the bars for fit and comfort. Both the jacket and the vest have two pockets on on the back in case you need to cary a phone, wallet, or a flask.”

Currently, Mr. Everest is taking on a handful of fitting appointments for the new Rapha suit. Be sure to contact Rapha for more details.
