Long before the Rapha Cycling Club, members of the Rapha riding community formed part of another club, or gruppo sportivo. Based in London but with an Italian soul, Imperial Works was a secret society of sorts which took its name from the turn-of-the-century piano factory that housed Rapha’s first offices. Only for RCC members, we’ve recreated the club’s luxurious livery. Based on the knitted track jackets often created for Italian cycling clubs, the Imperial Works Track Jacket is made with a luxurious merino wool blend for complete comfort. A contrast lining gives added insulation to the jacket which, with the two integrated hand pockets, helps keep you warm in cooler conditions. Design elements also include the hallmark Rapha armband and striped ribbed trims on the collar, arm cuffs and hem, giving the garment a luxury feel.
