If you are unfamiliar with Rapha they produce top of the line biking gear, so when they decided to make the foray into actually manufacturing bikes they wisely turned to some of the leading frame builders around.  It’s like a celebrity deciding to create their own clothing line and getting Paul Smith to help out (oh wait, Rapha did that too).  The Rapha Bicycle Collection features four different rides each unique in purpose and each crafted by one of four different frame building masters.  There’s the “Every Day” bike from Beloved, the “Continental” from Ira Ryan and Tony Pereira, the “XS” from Independent Fabrication, and the “XCR” from Cinelli.  The bikes all share a Rapha color palette and look sleek without being flashy.  They’ll be available for two years so you’ve got a little bit of time to decide which one you want – or get all four if you’re crazy rich.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
