  2. » Milano-Roma Classic Cap


Run only twice, in 1906 and 1918, the Milano Roma race pitched racers against each other over two days of racing on a testing 666-kilometre parcours. Back then, the design of the now-ubiquitous cotton cap was yet to be settled upon. A century on, this limited edition version of Rapha’s classic cotton cap celebrates the forgotten story of the race. The cap’s striking two-tone colour palette is sub-divided by a black grosgrain stripe and celebrates the unique aesthetics of Milan and Rome while the jagged design takes its cues from the futurist art movement of the early 20th century. A special edition Milano Roma patch is sewn onto the side and a Rapha logo features on the underside of the brim. A double ‘XX’ stitch on the brim adds a final touch, recalling the two-stage format of the race.
