Each refresh of the Japanese cycling outfitter Rin Project site reveals a new product obsession: wool cycling sweaters, retro hairnets, knicker hose, mod coats, leather cycling shoes and Brompton compatible shoulder satchels.
My top Rin Project product pick is this cycling pullover with retro-inspired front carrying pockets and wool sourced from the UK. It reminds me of the derby tweed sweaters that Rivendell Bicycle Works used to make in the 1990s.
This is the sweater to wear during your recreation of the Tyneside endurance test.
We’re thrilled to announce that Archival will be participating in Pop Up PDX in Tokyo sponsored by the Portland Development Commission on April 20-24. Archival will be one of eight brands exhibiting in Tokyo as part of a larger trade mission to promote business between the two cities. If you live or are visiting Tokyo, drop by and visit the Archival booth at the lovely Macch Ecute venue. If you are a Japanese distributor or store interested in working with a Archival, email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.

Someday I’ll mount a dollars-for-miles cycling campaign to fund my own custom watanabe bag.
