Claudio says, "Ouch!" But mostly from his wounded sense of Italian style.

Just took delivery of a Rapha Hardshell jacket and long sleeved merino base layer. I don't buy into their marketing/lifestyle vibe and so don't purchase their cycling clothing because of it. I buy Rapha gear (bases, bib, jackets and 3/4s) because of the quality of the finish and long lasting nature of the gear, that is why I pay the extra money. It is stylish to boot; simple and subtle.

Personally I don't get the hate. For those that do, don't just take it as read that anyone in rapha gear is a posing a'hole who takes him/herself too seriously – at least one person doesn't – me. And not being an a'hole I don't judge other people by the company that makes their gear.

teamjva is very funny through... who doesn't love a good parody.

Love some of the comments ...

'Thereís even a story about an epic ride sewn inside one of the rear pockets (not shown). Itíll probably be made from Sportwool, the wool having come from sheep that graze on Alpe díHuez or from Bernard Hinaultís private flock.'
