Description

Details

You won't find a more sophisticated and elegant a piece of cycling clothing than Vespertine's reversible merino wool tweed Road Hog.  See it come to life fully in the attached Vespertine YouTube clip - it's really the only way to do it justice.  The classical elegance of this soft, light-weight merino wool Heritage Tweed incorporates high-tech 3M reflective thread woven seamlessly into the tweed itself using traditional techniques in Scotland.

The reflective threads lie dormant within the tweed - until they awake to astonishing effect in direct light, such as a car's headlights or the paparrazi's flash.  The reverible interior material is a water resistant Eco Circle™ 100% recycled (and recyclable) polyester made in a closed loop system and finished in thrilling Cotton Candy pink with grey Scottish Heritage Tweed detailing.  The Road Hog's exquisite cut combined with such luxurious materials means you'll want to cycle in it partly as an excuse to keep it on once you get to your destination!

Who's Behind It?

Designer Sarah Zoe Canner is the talent behind Vespertine, now well established as one of New York’s foremost cycling fashion names. Through Vespertine, she has – in her own words – ‘re-invented safety wear, integrating luxurious fabrics, exquisite tailoring, eye-catching colours, and the most reflective materials into Haute Réflecteur designs for the new urban lifestyle’.

The catwalk appearances of Sarah’s designs are testament to that.  Vespertine products are actually made in New York itself using sustainable materials.  All their products combine a rigorous attention to detail (you should just see the stitching!) with the brightest reflectives out there.  Plus, of course, some of the funkiest designs ever invented for using on a bike.

Vespertine’s is a heartfelt philosophy: ‘safe is chic and cycling is a revolutionary act which sets good karma spinning’.  Who are we to argue?
