Feb. 27 Newsletter: Crowdfundable Commuter Couture

In today’s newsletter: new Bike to Work fashion, four new women’s jeans, and our latest COLOURlovers design contest.

New, Crowdfundable Bike to Workwear

We’ve been making clothes for two-wheeled commuters since 2008. And now through the magic of crowdfunding, products designed by fans and staff alike are popping up on our site faster than ever!

For example, today’s brand-new trio of Bike to Work prototypes: a blazer from Christian Prasch, a skirt from Mickey Roxas, and shorts from Jason Van Horn.

Scroll down for more photos and some extremely important FAQs.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why would I want to wear any of these? I’m quite happy cycling to work in the nude or, occasionally, a suit of armor. Well, our Bike to Workwear is designed for all-around comfort and utility, whether you’re on a bicycle seat or in an office chair. Features include subtly stretchy water-repellent fabric, handy pockets galore, and blinding reflectivity for evening commutes.

2. What if I prefer changing into work clothes in the unspeakably vile confines of an office bathroom stall? Far be it from us to deny you life’s simple pleasures, but consider that these garments are perfectly suited to a casual work environment.

3. Is it really up to me whether or not these products get made? More or less, you narcissist. These prototypes turn into actual products only if they reach their funding goals. That’s where you come in.

4. Can I really save up to 95% AND get a free ham if I help crowdfund these items? Up to 30%, and no ham (for now). That’s still an awfully good deal.
