Rapha Softshell Trousers

I'm needing some cycling pants that are as close as possible to the Rapha trousers(which have been discontinued) in terms of form and functionality. Any ideas? Man, I hate that they discontinued those!

They need to be a softshell, stylish enough that you won't be out of place in public, and be able to wear a thermal bib tight underneath. They have to have a good fit over winter boots(Northwave Fahrenheit) to keep water out. The Raphas are almost like dress slacks. I commute to work 12 miles each way.
