I’ve accumulated a pretty good collection of cycling socks and some of my favorites have been Tenspeed Hero and Girafe Sportive (their side line) designs produced by Defeet. All of the socks pictured above are done up in Defeet’s tried and true Aireator design- tall, light, and made in the USA. Check out the TSH shop for some of their new styles and colorsways.

Rapha SS14

TTJ02-Loc-SS14-07

As always I’m interested to see what Rapha‘s doing each new season and this collection does not disappoint. New styles of old favorite pieces, and new additional pieces that expand the brand’s offerings for the sartorially discerned cyclist. I’ll just touch on what caught my eye but the whole lookbook can be viewed here.

The Trade Jersey (pictured above) was introduced last year but they’ve taken the concept of the jersey further with the addition of embroidered text and graphics inspired by the heroes.

Rapha City Riding 2013

Jake Stangel shoots the Rapha City Riding collection throughout Antwerp and Berlin. This year’s collection brings some new pieces (merino gilet) as well as past favorites with updated features and of course new colors. The ‘old gold’ color pops up in quite a few pieces like the long sleeve city jersey & winter city socks. One thing that did stick out to me was the unnamed brown jacket which I’m quite sure is a yet to be released color of the already offered city rain jacket. I personally own their classic softshell jacket and it’s easily my favorite piece of kit, I certainly wouldn’t mind adding a more casual piece of Rapha outerwear to closet. View the rest of the lookbook here and some words with Stangel on the Rapha blog.

Topo Designs Fleece

topofleece-1

Jedd from Topo Designs sent over one of their fleece jackets at the tail end of last winter and I’ve been excited to make it a part of my regular outerwear rotation this year. I couldn’t help but notice how well the red and yellow placket trim went with my FairEnds livery so I expect that it’ll be a go-to jacket for both warm-ups and post-race hanging this cross season.

Boot Season

All of a sudden everywhere you go the beer’s got pumpkin in it, the donuts are filled with cider, and then just like that the mercury drops down to a sensible temperature. Summer’s great and all but I’m pretty pumped to put on some sturdy footwear after wearing plimsolls sans socks for the past few months. Pictured are my go-to boots from Danner, Red Wing, Vasque, and Yuketen.
