Best Buys from the January Sales


They say hair of the dog is the best recovery method for a hangover.

So, obviously, what better way to get over that lingering stress of Christmas shopping than a splurge in the January sales?

It sounds horrendous, I know.

But then again there are some rather good offers knocking about, so maybe just grin and bear it.

However, to try and limit the amount of time you have to browse the virtual shelves, below we’ve ever-so-kindly compiled a list of five of the best stylish cycling clothes on offer for men and women in the January sales. You’re welcome.

For Men

1) Levi’s Commuter 511 Slim Fit Jeans – £59.90 (RRP £85)

Part of a massive sale on Levi’s superb Commuter range, Levi’s Commuter Jeans are renowned for the high quality of the trousers and are one of the largest mainstream brands to have successfully adapted to the stylish cycling clothing industry.

60 quid for a pair of high-quality jeans is good, but add to that the cycling-functionality that these boast and you’re looking at a real bargain.

One problem here is that they one have limited sizes left, with the ‘Indigo Rigid’ in particularly short supply. More are available in ‘Green Rider’ and ‘Black Mid’ colours though.

2) Rapha Merino Polo – £55 (RRP £110)

Every time I look at this polo it makes me happy. It encapsulates “stylish clothes you can cycle in” perfectly. Admittedly, the fact that that provides me with so much joy should probably suggests I should be re-evaluating my life, but I digress.

Rapha are the kings of cycling style, although they are infamously costly. But, with a full 50% off, this polo becomes very decent value. Merino wool, lower back, urban chic.

Available in blue and purple.
