Urban/cooler bike clothing

Postby davidf140270 » Sun Sep 15, 2013 12:06 am

As I am a larger rider and no multinational company is willing to stump up money for me to wear their logos on my bike gear (tops, bibs etc) I would like to know if there is a company that does clothing that for want of a better phrase is urban/cool style. I do about 300 k's a week so I'm fairly serious about riding so I still want road bike specific gear if possible.

Suggestions welcome. :D

bit confused with your question, do you want road cycling wear that is not logo crazy? or do you want road cycling wear that does not look like cycling wear? Are you having trouble finding clothing because your "larger"?

if its the first see here plenty of cycling jerseys that are almost logo-less. There are plenty of other places to get jerseys that are not billboards. I have not seen many in Australia though, all the bike stores seem to only stock the walking billboard stuff.

Sorry, should be a lot more clear. I'm trying to stay awake for the Vuelta and this is one way to do it.

I like hotrod/rockabilly shirts for everyday living and I think I look like a bit of a dick in the trad cycling wear. If i was 183 cm and 82 kg's I'd be wearing all the good Italian stuff but I don't and am embarrassed enough in my tight fitting Netti gear.

It may not exist what I'm looking for but if anyone will know it's the BNA experts.

How do they go with sizing. I'm 184cms and 74kg, normally medium in British stuff and large in Italian. I was going to go medium with this US stuff?

Wasn't there some South Korean company doing groovy jerseys? I seem to remember there was something on here a year or so ago.

Urban/cooler bike clothing

I was going to post a link to Retro Image Apparel. They also have fantastic beer jerseys, novelty and retro jerseys. But the company seems to have disappeared. I've just discovered that the owner died suddenly last year.

There are still some jerseys in sale but it's not clear if supplies will continue.

Check out the Coney Island Lager jersey - it's a beauty.

I noticed they disappeared too. Unfortunately I found their jerseys to be very small, I ended up with a couple of XXXLs and they are still too tight and too short. Great designs though, love the Horton Collection jerseys. Would really like someone else to make those, in a larger size.
