We’re not usually advocates for silly or costume-y cycle wear, but we do love the aesthetic of a Tweed Ride.

While we think full Edwardian garb is just about crossing the line, we love these tweed knee socks with optional garters which were produced by Rapha for the recent Tweed Run in London.

We even contemplated getting our own pair – but just stopped our mouse from clicking on ‘Buy’ when we realised we were going to be paying around $70 for a pair of socks, luxury merino or not.

Please let us know if you spot a pair of tweed/argyle knee socks which are reasonably priced!

If you’re really into tweed rides, you can buy more Tweed Run products like silk scarves and hip flasks in their online store.
