Menswear: Bike in a Suit
Because here at Bike Pretty headquarters, we care about menswear too. In fact, there is very little that we find more delightful than a nattily dressed bike commuter dude. Sadly this breed is a rare site in the bike lanes of London and San Francisco.
With 30 days of biking starting on April 1, 2014, shortly followed by National Bike Month in May, we could all use a little office-appropriate inspiration.
Enter the Commuter Suit by Parker Dusseau. Masquerading as proper business attire, the whole ensemble is actually tricked out with little bike-friendly details like pit zips, discreet reflective piping, and a breathable, moisture wicking finish.
From a design point of view, this suit isn't pushing any boundaries. And that's just the way we like it. There's no need to go ruining a classic silhouette with some godawful hi-viz branding, right? Check out CoolHunting's review of the Commuter and see if it works as good as it looks.
