Review: SWRVE BLK Japanese Canvas Trouser Shorts

I feel like over the past few years, I’ve begun to appreciate a good pair of shorts. So far this spring, I’ve had a few pairs on heavy rotation but since acquiring a pair of the SWRVE BLK Japanese Canvas trouser shorts, I’ve barely taken them off and I’m pretty sure that’s what SWRVE wants you to do.

This Japanese canvas is coated with a special treatment to give them a broken-in look after a few weeks of wear and riding. The fabric took only a day to loosen up and break in, something I wasn’t expecting as they’re kind of stiff feeling when you first put them on.

A 9″ inseam is what many would consider too short for comfort but I’ve taken a liking to their fit. When walking or riding, they sit a few inches above the knee caps, but when you sit down, they tend to hike up a bit more, usually around your riding tan line and cyclists love to show that off, right?

Two pockets on the rear will hold your wallet and what have you, with one zippered pocket to ensure you don’t lose your keys. Signature SWRVE detailing like a soft lining around the waist, durable belt loops and one reflective loop strip set these apart from many other “cycling-specific” shorts. All this with a zippered fly.

I’ve only had these for a little over two weeks now, so they’ve yet to show heavy signs of breaking in, but as with all of SWRVE’s products, especially the BLK line, I’m sure they’ll hold up fine to daily use.

Since these are Made in the USA and small batch, you can expect a retail of $100. Money well spent if you ask me…

Bike Minimalism Reviews the SWRVE Milwaukee Hoodie

I have a SWRVE Milwaukee hoodie and it certainly performs! The Bike Minimalism crew took a swing at it recently…

“The Bikeminimalism crew had the opportunity to test the swrve Milwaukee ES -hoodies during the fall-winter season of 2012-2013. The testing commenced in September 2012 and we finished in late April 2013.

As part of our testing, we brought the hoodies through heavy winds, rain, sleet, snow, slush and various other miserable conditions. The temperatures ranged from the comfortable +10° centigrade to the downright miserable -25°C.

Filmed on January 5, 2013, it was one of the 5-6 sunny days during the winter. Don’t be fooled by the sunny skies – the temperature was more or less -10°C, it was windy and cold as hell. Nevertheless, our rider was happy to ruffle his feathers… “
