Rapha-Timothy to produce three-piece cycling suit

Apr '09
Rapha, the most desirable clothing brand in cycling, is proud to announce a unique collaboration, the result of which is a genuine first: a bespoke three-piece suit designed specifically for the gentleman city cyclist. For the past 12 months, Rapha has been working with Timothy Everest, the renowned Savile Row tailor, to develop a suit that is at home both on the bike and in the boardroom.

Comprising a jacket, waistcoat and trousers or plus fours, the finished suit offers elegance, thoughtful touches and luxury finishing, the trademarks that have helped establish Timothy as one of London's leading fine tailors. At £3000 it raises the bar for cycling attire, and is the perfect solution for looking the part and dealing with the functionality of cycling.

Features and fabric
The suit has a number of features for on-the-bike comfort. The front flaps of the jacket turn back and button under the pocket so they don't flap when riding and, along with the underside of the collar and sleeves, are pink for visibility. For additional reach on the bike the jacket has an 'action back' and the cuffs turn down making the sleeves longer. Specially designed by Timothy Everest, the fabric is a beautiful wool with a Prince of Wales check. Using a nanotechnology in the fabric it is amazingly water and stain resistant, and keeps the wearer cool in summer and warm in winter.

On the collaboration with Rapha, Timothy Everest comments:
''The brief was to tackle the response to growth in commuting by bicycle and current compromises in available clothing. The first suit is a purely Bespoke design with the ergonomics needed for cycling as well as looking reasonably smart. The fabric is inspired by old boy country suits worn by farmers to market - think Reid and Taylor 1958. Having said that, this colouring is more urban being black based with grey and a Rapha pink overcheck, so that it fits with most people's wardrobes. The yarn has a nanotechnology making it very shower proof, but unlike Teflon it doesn't affect the appearance or how the cloth handles.”
