    LOL - yeah, my thoughts too, but if someone here does know the history of each I'd love to hear it. Alternatively, I could go and read about both styles on Wikipedia :)

    well in short, it's overpriced poseur cafe wear.
    Seriously there's so much better stuff out there for people that are serious about cycling.
    Despite what you might read on tumblr, wool jerseys aren't used by the pros anymore for good reason. For a 30km cafe ride, they are perfect. Not so much for a 120km hill session. But if your paying $150 for a set of gloves to look good at the local bunch ride cafe of choice you've got more money than sense.

    the herring shoes are weybridges on sale.

    the PRL safari jackets were 70% off at their outlet, which was in my budget. No way i am paying full price for their level of construction ($499).

    Ah well... At least Ms X is pretty easy on the eyes.

    Interestingly, Vox posted a pic of a very dapper and young Steve Jobs in a sport jacket and bow-tie on his tumblr a week or so ago. Don't know if it's still there.

    P.S. Just ordered the silver and navy glen check! :slayer:

    The cloth is from one Deer Style's "house" books. It's a light, summery cloth that wears well.

    Sorry if there was any confusion, I wasn't specifically referring to PG personally there. Everyone's ridden with a rapha poseur at one time or another. They're not just contained to darlinghurst cafes I'm afraid!

    I am still not sure what the fuss this Mr Guido is about. All got was a guy who gets very annoyed very quickly wen you ask about PJ prices.
