Dec 22, 2014 – It’s Day 9 of Dig and we bring you two pairings – one for the high-end, style-hound commuter and one for anyone looking for a little bit of two-wheel fun with the significant other.
Parker Dusseau Commuter Blazer
Every time we get an email from Parker Dusseau we immediately want to buy its offerings. The Commuter Blazer is on our list: the material stretches, repels water and stains, it’s designed for riding, and it looks great once you lock up your bike. Pictured above.
Price: $425. More: parkerdusseau.com
One of our go-to choices for daily commuting, the solid and stylish U.S.-made Shinola Runwell is now available in five colors, including red for 2015. If you are thinking about taking the plunge for daily (or at least weekend) commuting, the Runwell is a great choice.
Price: $2,950. More: shinola.com
Club Ride Rialto Jersey
When the mid-ride coffee is more important then the ride itself, getting kitted up in full tights might not be necessary. Club Ride’s Rialto offers an alternative. It features what they call a sport fit, tailored and slim, but not a traditional race cut or even sportive fit. The fabric is called RideXDry and is lightweight, breathes well and wicks moisture to the surface where it can dry quickly. It’s got a secure pocket for a cell phone and some cash plus a single pocket just right for a water bottle or flat repair gear. It’s vented and has a half zip so don’t be afraid to drop the hammer in the Rialto. It has UPF 20 sun protection plus subtle reflective accents to keep you visible when the sun does go down.
