Updated to enable comments: Rapha is bringing to cycling a level quality in design and materials that I would never have expected. Aside from a really cool looking header graphic, Velodramatic has showcased (some might say shilled, though I believe the guy is seriously in love with the gear) some really amazing product.

If I had the means and the wear-with-all, this would be my kit of choice.

What brands are you interested in based on the quality of design, materials, and class? Which brands have redefined quality in their respective markets?
