Rapha button-down cycling shirts

by Modculture 19 February, 2010

I know a lot of you are into your cycling, so you might get a kick out of these new additions to the Rapha range – the Rapha button-down cycling shirts.

Yes, take your pick from short and long-sleeved styles, both slim fitting and made from a cotton-rich fabric that soaks up the sweat and dries quickly, offering details like displaced shoulder seams to avoid bag straps rubbing, a covered front panel to protect buttons from wear and tear, Raph branded buttons, contrast stitch button holes and a single button pocket on the back for your essentials (like a bank card for example).
