Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great fit. Every piece I have from Rapha is at the top of the drawer, except this...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a t-shirt Similar to Rapha's other t-shirts in sizing/fit (eg logo t-shirt) but in a slightly lighter fabric. Can't vouch for the technical aspects of the fabric but it didn't feel overly hot on a recent summer's day. Blue is quite 'petrol' in appearance and the white - unusually for Rapha - is ice bright, not the usual cream that many of their garments are. In short, it's a t-shirt and no more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favourite T Always on the look out for something in this colour (burnt orange... mustard to you and me), and good to ride in, or wear under a jacket. Cut is pretty relaxed, fabric perfect in terms of feel and temperature. Only niggle is label on the back which can scratch a delicate soul like me. Raglan sleeves, fwiw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good enough. I bought the medium of this shirt and also the merino T-shirt. The merino fitted me perfectly but this one was too large so I returned for a small which does fit me well. The dark purple is a great colour. Some of the photos on the website give the impression that the sleeves are tight fitting on the upper arms but that's not the case with me. It's a relaxed fit. There's a photo of a bloke modelling the purple shirt whilst leaning against a wall..... that's how it looks on me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The yellow one isn't that bright It's a great size and fit.... but the colour isn't accurate, it's a lot duller than the photo.

Hi, are the sleeves designed to be loose on the arms or close fitting like your merino tees? Hard to tell from the photos.

Asked by: Dougalm
Hi, the sleeves on the Essential T-shirt have quite a relaxed fit. The fit is slightly looser than our Merino T-shirt.

Hi, how is the sizing on these? I am 5'8 and 59kg, with a 35" chest. I like my tshirts to be fitted. What size do you recommend? Thanks

Asked by: buttonmoon
Hi, these T-shirts are regular fit (slightly looser than our Merino T-shirts). We would recommend a size Small. As always we have a free 90 day returns policy if you needed to change the size.

How is the sizing? I am S in the merino t shirt, is it the same fit or is it slimmer than the merino t shirt?

Asked by: Boss_OCD
Hi, the fit in the Essential T-Shirt is slightly looser than the Merino T-shirt as it has a bit less stretch. We would recommend ordering the same size.

Is this t-shirt the same as the rapha logo t-shirts without the branding on the front>

Asked by: Connor
Hi, the two T-shirts are slightly different. The Essential T-shirt is made from a fast drying cotton/polyester blend, whilst the Logo T-shirt is 100% cotton.
