Rapha to hold sample sale in Manchester

London clothing manufacturer offers bargains in the North West

by Mat Brett   May 14, 2012  


Rapha are holding a sample sale in Manchester later in the month. Get yourself along there to grab a bargain.

This will be the first time the London-based clothing company has held a sample sale in the North of England or indeed anywhere in the UK outside of the Big Smoke.

Rapha say, “Aside from burly sprinters and wiry grasshoppers wrestling over base layers, there will also be some ludicrous discounts on a whole range of end-of-line stock, returns and one-off samples.”

Specifically what items from the range will be available, we couldn’t say: you’ll just have to rock up there and take your chances.

The sale will be at Thomas Street Post Office – and that, funnily enough is in Thomas Street. Number 61, to be precise, opposite Oi Polloi. It’s on Saturday 26 May between 10am and 6pm.

Bollox, was hoping you might not announce this until the last minute (for entirely selfish reasons...)! Crying Smile

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...

Howies have done a couple in the past, they are usually pretty good. I might pop along to see what all the fuss is about.

Having met the Rapha people they are really really nice people and are very passionate about cycling.

I must point out that unfortunately they did not give me ANY Rapha kit Crying
