This dark trend on winter gear from the high end brands still baffles me. Thinking about it I have been quite happy with all my recent Castelli tops (mostly all variants of the Gabba) so all is well. Bright orange works !
    Chpt3 has a few designs in bright orange they call Fookin Red or similar. Might be of interest to you?

    I suspect it was for the standard reason: low sell through. The style is admittedly a bit of a marmite, so it probably appealed to a limited number of people.

    You guys have seen this right?

    It’s a voltron of cycling + street style fashion branding that can only happen in 2020.

    I did not think about them as I never bought a chpt3 piece but yeah, color looks good.

    Kit aside, I have less than no interest in modern production road bikes but I’d buy one of those Cannondales.

    I quite like their shorts but I got rid of my jersey and I've bought a couple from Torm which I really like - nice understated style, available in millions of colours and a better shape than Rapha IMO - particularly in length of the body.
    It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage.

    Rapha actually makes some of the best sweaters around in terms of style and function. They make a merino crewneck sweater that is perfect in winter with a long sleeved Capilene shirt for a great low mass/high warmth ratio.

    And they used to make a wind-front sweater that is a slightly felted merino knit with a nylon liner sewn in the front. Great thermal insulation for windy and/or damp conditions.

    I don't wear them cycling but I do wear them snowshoeing, wood cutting, yard work, hiking, etc.

    Their pants, not so great. And someone ruined their city shorts. More like a skort now. Way too much fabric. That's okay though as SWRVE does pants and shorts right.

    But sweaters, Brits have those figured out. Hopefully the Arkansians don't ruin that.

    Here's a q for all the rapha users: If a rapha classic jacket in small is fine in the shoulders and the sleeves are spot on, but it's just a hair too tight in the chest/stomach (yeah...). Hunch is a a medium won't really fit (and they don't have any in this color in medium, anyway), so what's a brand that'll fit like a just slightly roomier small rapha's classic jacket, without being a whole size bigger and flappy/baggy? Velocio, Ornot? Love that rapha classic winter jacket's chartreuse color, but it's tight enough that a few more pushups (or sandwiches) will make it uncomfortable, despite perfect length.
