The Brooklyn based brand, ICNY, unveils its SS14 Collection, “Changes and Transitions.” Based on the idea that when maneuvering in an urban environment, clothing should provide a level of both function and performance, the collection is filled with the highest quality 3M reflective details. One highlight is a full redesign on the knit structure of the brands iconic 3M reflective socks in a more colorful palette than past seasons. A colorful range of tees, tanks, and hats comprise the collection. Watch for special product drops throughout the season. To see and be seen, pick up the ICNY SS14 Collection in select shops and on the brand site, www.icnysport.com in March.
Don’t miss out on Ragpicker’s new additions. All UK orders this week are guaranteed before Christmas. Their merino products are really good, my two favourite being the base-layer and scarf. But check out the whole collection here.
Words by the designer, Matt Standbury : This t-shirt is cyclist take on “mans ruin” which is money drink girls and gambling. So “Cyclist Ruin” is too many fancy coffees, overdosing of sugar gels and chocolate bars and the devilish addiction to cake!!! And bowl moving bananas.”
T-shirt will be screen printed on a grey gildan heavy cotton t-shirt. £14 posted to the UK, £15 posted to Europe or £10 collected from London. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and if you want to pre order one.
Finally it’s feeling like summer, and finally it looks like i’m getting to pack my winter wear away. As Phil said, he feels like he’s been racing cross season since last August due to the on-going cold whether we’ve had.
Face value reviews are easy to dish out, but when it comes to winter gear what really matters is how the kit deals with the daily rigours over the harshest months. Over the winter season I’ve been testing out the Torm T5 Jersey and the Raincoat, Merino base and Thermal bibs from the lovely folks at SOLO.
I love researching a good piece of kit, sites like Carryology and Every Day Carry have allowed utter indulgence in this. When it comes to cycling gear I’ve always started with Washing Machine Post, not only are these some of the most comprehensive and trustworthy reviews but they are also bound up in an interesting tale that always makes for good reading and provides me a ‘word of the day’. More recently I’ve added the discerning cyclist to this list of resources, with its beautiful layout and hand drawn accompanying pictures what’s not to like. Bookmark em now.
