Nieuw but not new is Rapha’s Long Sleeve Jersey ($220USD). Dismissive Boredom would say it’s simply a LS version of the venerable Classic Jersey. However, that’s not entirely true. Rapha’s weighted the battle voor your temperature regulation in favor of Merino wool over polyester (52% Merino 48% Polyester). Definitely a plus voor de haarshness of the winter months. Rapha has eschewed their normal palette, going with 3 decidedly different colors for this piece. The light grey’s pretty sweet and the Old Gold is starting to grow on me. They sent me the Dark Fig version which is probably my favorite. Although, I can’t shake the weird sensation of feeling like J-Pow when I’m wearing it, though.

I was looking for the rest of the review ? Rapha has this exact jersey, in this color, on clearance for $165…. buy or pass ? 🙂 Cycleboredom Haha! One of these days. All their “Classic” garments are worth it. They take a ton of abuse. While this doesn’t carry that designation, it’s simply a long sleeve version of the Classic Jersey. I’d say go for it. Cheaper than my first of the short sleeve jersey.
