Outlier for Women

For over 8 months now, Lauren has been loving her Outlier women’s shorts and I wish I had taken more photos of them while shooting her Icarus because they fit her like a glove! Here’s the scoop on the full Outlier women’s line:

“Why should better clothing just be made for the boys? It’s taken far too long, but we’ve been working extensively on our women’s clothing and we’ve finally got some more good stuff for you. We started by taking some of our favorite garments and rebuilt them from the ground up for women’s bodies using the same great fabrics found in our menswear, of course. So here’s four for the ladies; four new garments that we hope you’ll consider future classics.”

See the full line at Outlier!

Giro Introduces the New Road Apparel Line
Giro_NewRoad_Merino_jerseys

After months upon months of design, development and prototyping, the Giro New Road line is now available at select shops. I’ve had hands on experience with many of these pieces and I’m very impressed with the concept and construction. While they look like casual silhouettes, these jerseys are part of an innovative design that allows you to access pockets on the bib “briefs”. Some of these products are meant to work as a kit and others are to be treated as a normal jersey. It’s hard to describe but the product photos below explain better than I can.

The technical, merino blends fit great and have clean, modern lines but most importantly for me, the New Road line is made in the USA and is still affordable. I have and will commend Giro for developing, designing and manufacturing this product line in the state of California.

There’s more to come but for now, you can see the product shots below.

Chari & Co: Gear PDX Rider Shorts
Chari

It’s spring in NYC and that means you can put your favorite riding jeans away and swap out for some shorts. Chari recently collaborated with Gear PDX on a pair of rider shorts:

“The new Chari & Co. NYC x GEAR PDX joints are the perfect shorts for people on the go. They’re slim-fitting and have a ton of features that urban cyclists will find useful:

-Two front pockets
-One vertical zip-up pocket
-Reflective liners on the inner cuffs (roll ‘em up!)
-Three rear pockets, including one specifically designed to hold a u-lock
-Stretchy!

Made in beautiful Portlandia, these shorts are only available at United Arrows Beauty & Youth in Japan and Chari & Co. NYC. $110.”

I’ll swear by Outlier but it’s nice to have options and these look a lot slimmer fitting than other options.

See more at Chari! and no, the balleur-ass LOOK is not included!
