Riding your bike to work is a good thing for your health.
Dressing for the ride is not a good thing for anybody with eyes.
DayGlo this. Waterproof that. Plus the spandex moose-knuckle — it’s not a good look.
Bridging the gulf between dressing for the ride and dressing for the office: Parker Dusseau, a new kid on these hilly streets trading in dapper activewear.
Dusseau’s suit jackets, chinos and dress shirts are hand made with clean lines and breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that stretch for action in all the right places. But where they truly shine is in the clever details.
Pop a collar, cuff or flap: reflective surface.
Pockets: deep, for the whole not losing your keys, wallet and phone thing.
Waistband: stays where it belongs and has a stow-point for your U-Lock while riding.
All of this while looking like, you know, real clothes for men.
Consider it a gift to yourself.
The gift of not being the guy in the helmet and spandex dodging into the lobby bathroom for a quick change.
