If you ride the bike to work, then you know the challenge it presents to your outfit: your work suit just isn’t designed to keep you comfortable during a commute. Not the case with Rapha’s Shadow Blazer, which is designed for seamless transition from the bike to the office.
Made using the same Shadow fabric Rapha uses for their racing garments, the jacket should handle foul weather just as capably as their jerseys and bibs. Even better, it’s a lighter version of the original fabric, turning out a lightweight blazer that’s wind-proof and impenetrable to water, so you can commute on a bike regardless of weather.
The Rapha Shadow Blazer comes in a tailored silhouette that will keep you looking sharp, whether you’re riding a bike to work, grinding in the office, or enjoying a drink during happy hour. A soft-piled fabric interior provides comfortable wear while aiding in moisture regulation, while a four-way stretch ensures you enjoy freedom of movement through any activity. We love the pitch black color of the Shadow fabric, too, giving it a look that should pair well with dressy outfits and casual Friday attires alike.
Features include taped seams, a high-visibility tab with reflective branding behind the collar, microsuede fabric inside the neck for comfort, vent holes on the arm pits, and metal snap button closures. It’s generous on storage, too, with two zippered pockets on the front and three pockets inside.
Available now, the Rapha Shadow Blazer is priced at $470.
