Cool cycling clobber

Worth a thread in itself I think.

I'll kick off with Vintage Velos (http://www.vintagevelos.com), which has a cracking range, including this Merino tricolore in long and short sleeve:

Have had a couple of pairs of the Quoc Pham 'Fixed' shoes (which have been featured on the site before), which look lovely but can't take much punishment.  http://www.quocpham.com/products/index.html



Am now in love with the Vittoria Line 1976 range - especially the suede/calfskin ones (though yet to find a UK supplier of the latter - anyone know...?)

Parker International seem to stock the black ones but not the suede. Can't see the suede ones (lovely though they are) lasting long in British cycling weather.

These are an alternative

Absolutely dying for a pair of these (or the lace up Giro's that Phinney dons) but unfortunately records have rinsed me of any reasonable funds for them.

the Rapha Grand Tour are my favourite shoes but at 300 - they're never going to adorn my feet

I don't even look at Rapha any more mate, it's depressing.

Some lovely stuff on there. Have the orange short sleeve one that my brother got me as a present but is a bit too tight I'm afraid. Might have to chuck it in the sales section ;-)
