I lived in Rapha's short sleeved Fixed Shirt last summer. I needed just two of them to get by shooting on the road. Washed and hung to dry at night, the shirt was always ready for action the next morning... no ironing required. This season's Short Sleeve offerings in powder blue and pink up the style ante with the beautiful tailoring, stretch cotton fabric and details that are the hallmark of all Rapha products.
Unsure I could carry off the pink like the Continental's Ben Lieberson does on the Rapha site, I bought two XLs in blue and love them.
The Rapha shirt is matched here with a pair of Kühl Renegade trousers. The Renegades are super lightweight pants, styled with Kühl's signature articulated knee and relaxed fit. Rated at SPF 50 they have plenty of pockets: two front, two concealed and zipped side, two velcro-sealed rear and a cell phone pocket on the outside of the right leg just above the knee. My iPhone fits comfortably. I like the fact all those pockets don't compromise the clean lines of the trouser.
Last but not least I'm wearing a pair of Five Ten Spitfires, a versatile midtop skater shoe in Black split-grain leather and gray nubuck with a small RAF roundel. The shoe has a nicely padded heel collar, stealth traction sole, and killer good looks.
The Rapha Short Sleeve Shirt is $110, the Kühl Renegades $70 and the Five Ten Spitfires $90.
