Sample views of velo-themed menswear seen at the Oregon Manifest handbuilt bicycle show. I should have forged some faux Sartorialist press credentials and requested that people actualy pose for me. My kid pix digital camera w/five second flash delay did not inspire confident spy shot photography. One look (not pictured) appeared to have been art directed for an editorial spread in the Thursday Styles section of the New York Times: fedora hat paired with blue blazer, knickerized trousers and Sidi cycling shoes (I’m imagining a new trend of Sidi shoes doubling as work shoes–even for the non-cyclist).
Not much to speak of in the way of female cycling fashions save for the typical embellishing accessories of raingear, caps and bags (Lemolo!).
Spotted lots of roll-top Chrome messenger bags in shades of grey and black. This bag is one of those accessory items I’ve come to admire (for the metal hardware, rolltop design and generous pocketing) but will most likely never own.
