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.

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.

Danner Union Way is a slick  concept shop recently opened in Portland’s retail retail corridor Union Way which is also home to a Steven Alan and Self Edge among other shops. Yes, the store stocks a variety of Danner boots but it also offers other great American-made goods from brands like Archival Clothing, Topo Designs, and Taylor Stitch.

The T-Shirt

tees-1

As simple and seemingly boring as they are, t-shirts are probably the most important piece of my wardrobe to me. Shown here are some of my favorite brands that I think put out the best tee’s out there. What makes them better than a Hanes? Fit, weight, feel, details.. pretty nit-picky for a t-shirt but hey, that’s what I wear most days so they might as well be good. Continue reading
