Okay, so I don't know how much Rapha stuff is rediculed here on RBR, but for some reason, I just really want one of the new tweed cycling caps they are coming out with.
Yes, they cost $55 dollars, plus whatever shipping is. Yes, they are kind of dorky and ugly, but man, for some reason, I just really want one.

You want what you want. Why ask a bunch of people on the internet what we think? Buy it if you like it.

That cap doesn't qualify as "fashion" except among wool knicker wearing, Brooks saddle loving, full beard sporting, retro wool jersey using, former Earth Science teachers.

Maybe he's asking on the wrong forum. Oh crap, did I just describe Dave Hickey?

Wanker? Of course not, Lousy. You wear one of those and you'll be as cool as Hollywood, the ultimate Lounge hipster.

Buy it and wear it proudly.

I own numerous tweed caps, collected from travels all over. I don't have any cycling-specific hats though, which is odd since I have more hats than all of the Village People combined. Hell, this week I've worn a trilby, a fedora and probably half a dozen different caps in wool, tweed and linen! When it comes to hats, you've just got to go with your gut. I like those caps, and $55 is not a bad price for a good hat. If I see those for sale around here I just might pick one up.

I approve!:thumbsup:

I love Rapha stuff. I have the "winter" gloves and can't wait for spring for the "summer" gloves to come back out. But you're still a wanker. HTH

///OMG, they're out!

I saw Robin Williams in Mellow Johnny's buying one of those. So it's definitely cool.

The day before i had a really funny exchange with robin over the tweed ride, he seemed to think it should have been called the wet sack ride...

Fwiw Lousy several other companies make these, none are cheap per se but they arent Rspha cost. PM me if youd like, we typically have a good amount of these
