Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features ! I´ve got a few Essential T-shirts. They are very comfortable. I love it for its slim fit, style and quick-drying fabric. Perfect for bike and off bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabric - soft Bought this about six months ago, it's a nice shirt to wear, very comfortable and soft. When I was packing for overseas it was the first shirt in the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife was aghast... "you bought 2 of these in white and you want me to only wash them on a 30 Degree wash? You must be mad" she said to me. I don't care, the styling, the fit and the comfort are all first rate. Understated, I simply forget I'm wearing it, unless I'm eating a spaghetti bolognaise that is.

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 4 out of 5 by from Sizing!! Bought this T-Shirt recently but had to return due to being too big. Runs bigger than other styles & riding jerseys. Have ordered a smaller size.

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.
