Far from the worst thing I've seen in the Pitti photos...
The swedes are really rockin it. Great job! Also the groomed beards are a refreshing change from the unkempt lumberjack look I see around my town. Thanks EFV!
Thanks - I might just ask Luxire to hot wash the raw denim before cutting to minimize the risk.
@Bakkerrr looks great - did you measure off of an existing pair of jeans or did you specify measurements in some other way? And did you find the shrinkage was close to what Luxire specifies on the denim ordering page?
Adding to the Stowa love-in. Stowa Marine Automatic. I ordered it on May 21st and it shipped on May 30th. I actually have to send it back to Stowa as the crown is unscrewing from the stem when I set the time in the forward direction. Stowa has offered to pay shipping both ways.
It's the middle of summer and I'm wearing autumn clothes - IDGAF. Luxire Dugdale bottle green cords, Luxire warzone white oxford, navy j.crew crew neck sweater, Stowa Marine Automatic, Kent Wang captoe.
Conventions change. Lapels get skinnier or wider, shorts hemlines get longer and shorter. The world turns.
The Rapha stuff is gorgeous, but I participate in too many different sports to buy a lot of sport-specific clothing. Today I rode in to work in the pouring rain wearing my Arc'teryx Sidewinder ski coat with an lightweight Icebreaker merino wool base layer underneath. No cycle fashion points but I stayed dry.
Also go through a few wash/wear cycles before deciding on any fit adjustments.
It's been a few years but I think it from Linus. The frame has an eccentric bottom bracket so the shell rotates slightly when it is adjusted which severely limited my selection for a chainguard. It had to mount so that it rotated with the EBB.http://www.linusbike.com/products/linus-chainguard?variant=252281892@GuidoWongolini - what exactly is the anti Rapha sentiment? Is it due to the 'premium' brand positioning? Other than being in the 'steel is real' group I try to stay...
