Midsummer T-Shirt Round-Up

When I’m not in the jersey, I’m usually a t-shirt-and-jeans kinda guy. Admittedly, I go a little bit crazy for bike-themed tees. If I see one, I get it. Now my drawers are full of cycling-related shirts and it kind of makes me feel like a bit of a bike geek… probably because I am a bike geek.

Here’s the latest round of t-shirts that have come out around the world and made it onto my wish list…


Very classy tee (as classy as a t-shirt gets anyway) from Ohio framebuilder Stanridge Speed featuring Adam’s “ghost rider” headbadge design. Support independent framebuilders — twenty bucks and it’s yours! Get one here.


A new t-shirt from Toro Quality Goods. Not the lowest price tag but when they say “quality goods” that’s what you can expect. This tee should be able to withstand years of abuse. Get yours for $25 here.

Cantgoslo's new fitted t-shirts are available in these three colors and feature their iconic shield logo. Twenty quid each and available here. Also check out their new coach jacket.


Andey at Flwrider just unleashed this tee on Monday and everyone’s been all about it. At ten bucks including shipping, it’s probably the best deal on the net (or off the net for that matter)! I’ve already ordered one. Have you? Get it here.


And when the weather starts to get colder (which won’t be for a while here in Los Angeles), I’ll definitely want to layer up with one of these hoodies from Domestique. They aren’t available just yet but as soon as they come out, you can snatch one here.

Want!

Someone please get me this new Milltag mod jersey, an homage to Bradley Wiggins.  Here’s what they say about it:

Inspired by Wiggo’s performance last year (note the Number 58 on the pockets!) and his love for all things Mod, we think it’s the perfect nod to the man and our own vote of support to young Bradley as he sets off on this year’s Tour.

The jersey is manufactured using the latest performance materials and features a full length front zip, 3 standard rear pockets and a zip pocket for valuables and silicon gum around the full bottom hem to keep it from riding up.

The jersey will be retailing for £70 (plus P&P) and hopefully will be ready for purchase and posting by early next week. As with all Milltag jerseys, numbers are strictly limited edition – in this case only 30 (each individually numbered) so if you want one it’s first come first served: email me now!

Here’s a video from the Moncler fashion show which I posted about yesterday.

Not sure I would wear any of those clothes even if I could afford them but that’s just me.

Moncler recently showcased their 2011 Gamme Bleu (by designer Thomas Browne) collection in Milan using the Vigorelli Velodrome as a runway.  Here’s what style.com says about the line:

"This season, Browne took the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia as inspiration, borrowing competitive cycling items such as zipped racing tops and shorts, adjusting his cuts by extending jacket hems at the back (even adding a peplum effect here and there), and inserting gusseting to ease body movement in his tailoring. He also introduced a Neapolitan ice cream color palette—pink, white, brown—before closing with a classic biker jacket in black leather, a wittily tough little kicker at the end of all that precise, even pretty clothing."

I’ll be the first to admit that I was never so hot on the Cinelli x RVCA collabo frames — nice bike and nice art but I always figured they were just some kind of overpriced novelty item.

Well the build on this Cinelli x RVCA x Barry McGee completely changed my mind.  Definitely a gorgeous work of art and a steed worth riding.
