De­buts ga­lore as Foffa en­ter the world of cloth­ing while Rapha do sim­i­lar for hel­mets. And keep a track of Tile Mate…

The Lon­don-based out­fit

are bet­ter known for their range of sin­gle­speeds but have re­cently dipped into the cloth­ing mar­ket. Their Har­ring­ton jacket is Foffa’s flag­ship item and is… okay. We like the price – half that of brands like Rapha and Vulpine. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s not the finest-fit­ting gar­ment, hang­ing a lit­tle un­com­fort­ably. That could be down to the ven­ti­lated back, which clears sweat ef­fi­ciently but to the detri­ment of com­fort and looks. In fact, we’d say this jacket’s very much func­tion over fash­ion with a 10k hy­dro­static rat­ing show­cas­ing its water-re­sis­tant qual­i­ties. Long sleeves come in handy when down on the drops, and we ap­pre­ci­ate the con­fi­dent zip­per.
