I’m loving the blue long-sleeve!
Thanks to Lynn for pointing this one out to me; lifestyle site Refinery 29 have came up with 5 hairstyles allowing girls to not have to choose between protecting their nuts and maintaining their style on arrival, nice idea assuming you can keep your composure and don’t get carried away on the ride!
On Thursday night we attended the launch party for City Cycle Style courtesy of the Grange Hotel St Pauls.
The City Cycle Style exhibition, by leading fashion photographer Horst A. Friedrichs, will be held outdoors at London’s Royal Exchange from 28 September to 29 October, opening 24 hours a day. It’s said to capture 40 of the city’s most stylish riders on their beloved bikes.
If you want to see the exhibition which features images of Rudy and Peter then visit here. We’re looking forward to the accompanying book too!
Review: 4TN Lambswool Shoulder Patch Crew
4TN Clothing is the brainchild of our friends at 14BikeCo, spearheaded by 14 rider Odge Wong. The line is designed for city riders who demand superb quality and well-made cycle-specific clothing without compromising on style, so as expected the AW2010 collection rises to the challenge. I’m loving this lambswool shoulder patch crew-neck sweater, in a burnt orange hue.
The suede elbow patches and shoulder panels are a welcome detail on the jumper, which passes the test of quality: production on the seams is top notch and the wool is of the highest grade, so the only tearing up you’ll be doing is on the road, track or the local trick spot. The cuffs are specifically designed to be long, so no more exposed wrists on the ride; the length of the garment has also been thought of so wearing this is also great for avoiding a cold arse.
As every savvy rider knows, lambswool along with other wools wick moisture away pretty well, making the lambswool sweater not only super warm but good for sweating in without stinking of BO. My only gripe I that this baby doesn’t come in a girl’s fit, but I’m appreciating the baggy style that I can rock with this in the small size, which can look great in a more casual outfit as below, thrown on with some staple Carhartt chinos and all-leather Vans. The 4TN sweater comes in this bright colourway along with a more subdued grey or navy. Not everyone can wear orange like me you see…hahahaha
