Rapha Jackets

Rapha's got some new essentials for your closet and this time we're not talking about their cycling styles. They're offering up a fresh take on the blazer and wool coat and you definitely can't go wrong with either choices. The Shadow Blazer is made from a technical material that is treated with DWR and then shrunk to enhance its water-resistance. It's also got taped seams and four-way stretch that eliminates the restriction to movement you would feel from a traditional jacket. 

The wool coat is a versatile design built for addressing various weather conditions with a material that protects you in the rain while a removable gilet made with Polartec Alpha insulation gives you another layer of warmth when the temperature starts to dip. The coat was also built to perform laser cut holes that add ventilation and a relfective strip keeps you visible in low light situations.
