Rapha sounds already bad, like anticipating such a fake retro style, that can only be fake by definition, as traditional cycling clothing from the past is there, on the past. I think Assos, or gore, or pearl izumi, are more interesting. Technical apparel for a technical stuff. If we start comparing cycling apparel with fashion, I'd rather cycle naked, quite frankly. It's important to understand that style has a limit, and if you go over it, it becomes anti-style, and enter the field of pathetic, poser, hipster, and specially fakeness and makeup. Cipollini would love old this crap.
Adias, should i say nalini, previous kit was already bad (as it was a nalini rebranded to adidas). This one is worse. It's as bad as a pinarello, so i think it's a good kit brand that will match a suspicious sponsor, suspicious frame manufacture, etc... they should wear all fizik shoes and mavic wheels, to close the circle.
