The classic t-shirt in 100% merino

The classic t-shirt revised, with a slim fit and constructed from improved, softer merino for comfort, breathability and natural odour resistance. The rear hem is dropped to keep the back covered while on the bike and the signature Rapha band features on the left arm.

Seams have flatlock stitching so they won't chafe and are positioned behind the shoulders to avoid bag or bib straps rubbing while cycling.

To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural cedar extract to help repel moths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely fit and finish When it comes to T shirts I'm very fussy on the fit and feel and this top didn't disappoint. The material is lovely and soft with a slight stretch but doesn't lose it's shape or become scruffy looking after a days wear, i also like the fact the sleeves sit slightly lower down your arms and don't ride up, and the slightly extended rear means it sits well and doesn't do the same. Overall outstanding T shirt and i purchased in the other colour as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A T-Shirt for life in general, not just cycling. I have found my style, jeans, trainers, keys, phone, Brompton, the love of a good woman/children and this T-shirt. Super comfortable, cut is slim so buy a size up if you want some 'beer' room and let this garment do the rest, not too hot, not too cold, not too long, not too short. It is nothing more than a great T-shirt for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great t-shirt I used to have few other merino garmets in my closed and as I saw that rapha has made merino t-shirt I decided to give it a go and as expected I wasn't dissapointed at all. Merino is a beautiful fabric for all kinds of weather, doesn't matter if it's hot, cold, rainy or steamy, merino performs tremendously wll. Perfect fit as usuall with all rapha products. I wear M jerseys and M t-shirt fits just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite T-Shirts These merino t-shirts are without doubt greta value for money, I'm 6'4" and take a large. The cut is awesome and with a little care will last you a couple of years minimum. I've purchased the last 4 seasons versions and highly recommend. I wear my new ones as smart casual wear as the finish is premium and wear my old ones for gym sessions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a touch of class! I'm a stripes person. I have a few Russian navy tops like this but they are quite course and heavy. This is a beautifully made lightweight comfortable T that looks so good I immediately ordered another one. I'd order more if there were any left in my size.

Is this warmer (or thicker) than the merino base layer? Or lighter? Wondering about summer in LA...

Asked by: Anonymous
This T-shirt will be slightly thicker then a Base Layer as it can be used as primary garment.

Hi, is the fit similar to the merino base layer? Cheers.

Asked by: Tweedie
The fit could be slightly more lose as Base Layers are designed to be worn underneath cycling attire and generally have a tighter fit then standard T- Shirts.
