Smart city tailoring in revolutionary Shadow fabric
A smart city blazer made from Rapha’s revolutionary Shadow fabric, providing sharp style combined with comprehensive weatherproofing.
Shadow fabric was the result of extensive testing by professional riders and featured a revolutionary woven material, pre-treated with water resistant coating and then shrunk 50% to increase density and prevent water penetration. The result was an almost completely waterproof, highly breathable fabric. A lighter-weight version of this fabric has been used in the Shadow Blazer, creating a tailored garment that is windproof and water resistant and will transition the wearer from bike to office in total comfort.
Taped seams, branded snap buttons to neck for multiple styling options, two zip pockets to the front, internal zipped passport pocket, internal phone pocket, zipped credit card pocket to the left sleeve. Hi-vis tab with reflective branding to the rear of the collar. Microsuede fabric has been inserted inside the neck for comfort while mesh fabric to the upper inside back and laser cut holes to the armpits aid ventilation.

The care instructions on the jacket says to machine was at 30 degrees celcius, but then also says dry clean only. which one is it? does this mean the kit needs to be dry cleaned as well? a bit in the fog here.
I'm wondering if the performance fabric holds body odor?
Hi, I am wearing "S" size for my Rapha poplin shirt and cotton shirt. Which size should I select for the Shadow Blazer ?
What is the season (spring/fall) this blazer designed for? Does it keep warm, even off the bike?
I am wearing "M" size for my Lightweight transfer jacket and Softshell Overshirt. Which size should I choose for the Shadow Blazer ?
Does this jacket have similar fit to other Rapha city jackets? Would I stick with a S?
This jacket has a few creases due to packing that are making the fit less than ideal, especially in the shoulders and lower back. What is the best way to remove the creasing without ruining the materials?
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Shadow Blazer is available.
