A luxury cycling jersey inspired by the sport’s famous black jersey and Giuseppe Ticozzelli, the footballer who rode Italy’s three-week tour in 1926, in turn becoming the inspiration for the jersey honouring the race’s last man.

The first man in black

While never worn by a rider as masterful as Fausto Coppi, the black jersey - denoting the slowest rider in the race - is an integral part of Italian cycling heritage and as such Rapha presents this luxury merino wool jersey. Designed to be worn both on and off the bike, the jersey is made in Italy at a factory specialising in high-end knitwear. Its design and motifs reference Giuseppe Ticozzelli the professional footballer and keen cyclist who decided to ride Italy’s three-week tour in 1926 at the age of 32. It was an unconvincing debut, unsurprisingly, and Ticozzelli - who raced in black - is the supposed inspiration for the black jersey that would thereafter be worn by the last man in the race. The jersey is fully-fashioned for a shaped fit that is very comfortable both on and off the bike, while a distinctive rose-silver plated zip and puller echo those used in jerseys of Coppi’s era. Over time, they will develop a lovely patina too. The black fabric ‘leader’s plate’ on the chest has also been sourced to replicate those sewn onto leader’s jerseys of the time, as have many other features included in this luxury piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful garment! When I opened the package and saw the jersey, I was almost afraid to wear it. It is such a gorgeous garment. But, I was doing a metric century with weather that called for a jersey like this. Beautifully made and just the right weight. Ideal for Spring and Fall and Summer days that aren't too steamy. This will probably end up being my favorite jersey of all time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and fabric This jersey is extremely comfortable and a great weight except for the nasty humid days. The design is A-1 except I've developed a couple of small tears getting it on and off

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very delicate jersey I have loved every single piece I've ever purchased from Rapha, and I would have loved this jersey except it is so delicate that it rips and tears at the slightest tension! Such as pulling it on! I've worn it 4 times now and it is full of holes. I had to take it to my dry cleaner seamstress to sew up the holes, and I already have a new hole in the arm pit from putting it on the other day. Holes in the back pockets are aplenty.
