Long sleeved shirt made from performance cotton
Rapha’s take on classic shirting, for 2014 the Long Sleeve Shirt is made from an Italian-milled fabric that uses a higher yarn count and closer weave to give the shirt a luxurious finish. Traditional tailoring defines the garment, with a hidden, button-down collar point, contrast piping under the cuffs, and elbow darts for an improved silhouette.
The fabric’s stretch creates a comfy and elegant fit both on and off the bike, and the concealed placket front is a simple solution for keeping buttons out of the way of messenger bag straps. Rapha’s traditional rear pocket uses a reinforced ribbon and is secured by a single button.

‟It’s as soft and luxurious as cotton, but the quick-dry fabric breathes, sloughs off sprinkles, and doesn’t wrinkle even if you cram the shirt in your pack.”
