get this - http://www.rapha.cc/cross-scarf

Winter's coming and it would look so good with my black overcoat. Surely it would make hot girls drop gushers in their knickers no?

(anyone know how I could get it cheaper?)

    I would. It's very nice and not badly priced considering it's 100% Merino and Rapha. I like the colours/design of their cross stuff. Go for it.

    Sadly, I doubt it will make any lady gardens tingle.

    The fact a woman is wearing it in the rapha pics might suggest it may not have the desired effect you envisage. Instead you might get a lot of them asking you where you got it from and discussing hair care tips.

    It's quite, er, 'feminine' isn't it :shock:

    I'd give it a miss but each to their own :wink:

    Its not even sticked in logo like my TB, its just a tag stitched to it!

    Rapha should stick to cycling kit.

  • No, no, no. That's not what you wear to cross, this is what you wear...

    Men tend to buy branded fashion goods because they're not confident in their own look and want something that is 'pre-approved' by a big label. It's just a scarf. Get a scarf from TK Maxx and write Rapha on it. Spend the other £38 on a hooker and a bag of chips.

    :shock: Wow, hookers are cheap round your way :wink:

    Out side of Amsterdam you could probably get a 15mins suck & *uck....

    I'm not sure that's overly fair Mike. I like the colour mix of it and it would go well with a black wool (or likely imitation wool) overcoat on a night out/way to work.

    As i rapidly approach my 30's (shudder), don't look young enough to get away with the student/skater boi look, and also have some money to be able to buy decent clothes, I'm starting to pay a bit more attention to stuff like that now. It's also a bit of a nod to my cycling identity to which I like. I would nt ever buy Rapha to wear riding, I think you can do just as good for much less.

    ..or maybe one weekend in Windsor has warped me a bit ;)

    I have no idea but I wouldn't be letting myself go with one costing that much!

    Get it then. Make sure you take the label out straight away for maximum coolness and to avoid the risk of being associated with 'hipster douchebags'. Just sayin' :wink:
