Stylish Cycling Clothing for Men

Primal Wear Paxton Men’s Hoodie – Review

Layering in the winter months is vital. And a key asset in your layering arsenal should be a nice hoodie. Pop on a t-shirt, throw over a hoodie or jumper and a medium-weight jacket and you should be plenty warm on your upper body for whatever chills you may face. Read more >

Resolute Bay NX1 Cordura Cycling Jeans – Review

For the most part of 2016, I have been wearing pretty much one pair of jeans: the Resolute Bay Cordura jeans that I reviewed back in March. It’s not that I don’t own other jeans. I probably own four or five pairs (I know, what a show-off). But the simple Read more >

LUMO Clissold Bomber Jacket – Review

Last year I reviewed LUMO’s Herne Hill Harrington, a jacket that was particularly eye-catching due to its unique LED integration that ensures maximum visibility in low light. Now LUMO are back with an all-new, yet ever-so-familiar, jacket. LUMO caught people’s attention with their cycling-friendly products that offer LED lights embedded Read more >

Next in line for the West Sussex-based start-up are Read more >

John Smedley Hugh in Silver Pullover – Review

One of my favourite things to discover is an outfit that is functional for cycling without necessarily having been intended to be so. Any clothing that is comfortable, flexible, and ideally breathable, is off to a winning start. John Smedley’s ‘Hugh in Silver’ pullover is one such example of every Read more >

Resolute Bay Cordura Jeans Review

Regular jeans can be some of most unforgiving pieces of clothing when it comes to cycling, they can get warm and sweaty, rarely offer much give (especially if you opt for a slim or straight fit) and can also leave your rearside exposed. That’s not to say you can’t cycling Read more >

Ministry of Supply Dress Shirts – Review

I received a couple of new shirts before Christmas that feature, ahem, NASA technology. How many shirts do you own with NASA technology? Didn’t think so… peasants. Alas, though, I’m not about to join Tim Peake on the International Space Station anytime soon. But my bike rides over the past Read more >

LUMO Herne Hill Harrington Jacket – Review

When reviewing products for Discerning Cyclist, I often find that they tend to lean more towards style or – as is more often the case – functionality. It is a rare case indeed that discovers the perfect balance between the two. In the ideal world, an onlooker shouldn’t even be Read more >

5 Great Places to Buy Office-Appropriate Cycling Gear

Cyclists often believe there are only two options when it comes to selecting what to wear for their ride. They can either: 1) wear cycling kit and then get changed when they reach their work place, or 2) wear their office gear which is far from optimised from cycling. At Read more >

Can a Woolly Hat Really Save Your Life?

You can’t beat a good old hand-knitted woolly hat for the colder months, can you? It’s the epitome of a cosy winter. So it’s all the more impressive that On The Glo, who launched their Kickstarter campaign on 23rd October, have taken such a classic simple design and added a Read more >

4 (and a half) Superb Merino T-shirts for Cycling

Merino is a wonderful material when it comes to cycling. It wicks sweat. It keeps you warm when you’re cold, yet offers bountiful breathability when you start heating up. And it’s also odour resistant. All of which are fantastic qualities to have in any t-shirt when you’re cycling about. Below Read more >

24Bottles Salva Gamba Waterproof Cycling Trousers – Review

Okay, so a while ago I was sent the Salva Gamba waterproof cycling trousers from 24Bottles. And, after checking out there website I discovered that these cost €69! That’s just over £50 – for waterproof trousers. To me that seemed like madness, considering my previous pair of waterproof over trousers Read more >

The Best Cycling Jeans Around for Men and Women

I’ve found the most unforgiving article of everyday clothing – when it comes to cycling – to be jeans. They’re thick, warm and don’t typically offer enough give or stretch for riding comfortably – making it hard even to get your leg over the saddle. It’s unsurprising, therefore, that there’s Read more >

Svelte Heritage Jersey – A Rapha Alternative?

In the past, whenever I’ve try to explain to somebody the concept of Discerning Cyclist, I say it is a website devoted to either: 1) “stylish cycling clothes” or 2) “stylish clothes that you can cycle in”. While these might semantically seem to be the same thing, I have discovered Read more >

The Ultimate Survival Guide to Cycling in the Cold and Wet

As another page on the calendar is turned, there’s no more kidding: summer is over. The days draw shorter, the air a little chillier, the ground damper and the sun no longer an occasional visitor, but a hazy memory. Alas, we’ve been through all this before. The seasons are nothing Read more >

Top 10 Stylish Cycling Bargains from the Summer Sales

One of the regular quips that I hear – and I agree with – regarding stylish cycling clothing, is the high price tags associated with the products. Unfortunately, that puts many cyclists off purchasing more functional yet stylish cycling clothes. Fortunately, though, at the end of every season comes a Read more >

Helly Hansen Kos Polo – Review

After reviewing the excellent Helly Hansen Universal Moto Jacket not long ago, I decided I tried out some more of Helly Hansen’s gear. In particular, their summer wear – the Kos Polo coupled with the HD Classic Shorts. Kos Polo The Kos Polo isn’t specifically built for cycling – like Read more >

Managing the Summer Sweat Problem

There’s nothing quite like heading out on a bike ride on a crisp winter day – beautiful scenery, an invigorating ride and, most importantly, you’re as fresh when you arrive home as you were when you left! In summer, it’s a different story! Most of us struggle to manage the Read more >

Café du Cycliste Paulette Cycling Shorts – Review

I can’t speak for the UK, but today felt like the day summer truly arrived. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the climate of south Germany, which has been quite frankly, lush. One of the key steps to getting ready for summer, especially if you’ll be cycling frequently, is to get Read more >

Is This Cycling Jacket Ready for the Boardroom?

Cycling jackets, well more specifically cycling blazers, are something that many ‘office’ cyclists have yearned for. Blazers are one of the key items that generally aren’t built for cycling, as they are normally offer relatively little give on the back and around the arms. Meaning cycling can put an almighty Read more >

Helly Hansen Universal Moto Jacket Review

My jacket for the last few months – as we’ve transitioned from winter to spring and towards summer – has been the Helly Hansen Universal Moto Jacket. Norwegian dynamos Helly Hansen are renowned for producing tough, lightweight, yet well-designed jackets largely thanks to their background in the outdoors. Since 1877, Read more >

Le Col Neck Warmer Review

A few months back, Le Col kindly sent me one of the neck warmers to try out. Now, I appreciate this is not at all seasonal – but at least you can plan well ahead for autumn and winter this year! I’ve never previously worn a neck warmer before, and Read more >

Tesco’s Outdoor Clothing Waterproofer + Wash – Review

I was asked to test out some of Tesco’s Expert Outdoor Clothing Waterproofer and Wash products a while ago, to see whether – despite being half the price – they can match up to some of their competitors. These products are, essentially, for looking after your waterproof gear to ensure Read more >

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 Read more >

A Cycling Poncho?

There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning – set for work – then taking a peak out of the window to see the last thing in the world you wanted to see… bloody rain. Fortunately, I’ve been blessed for the past couple of years as my commute has Read more >

Is This Cycling Bag Too Cool for School?

[FASHION PHILOSOPHY RANT WARNING] It’s strange how what you wear can alter your mood and even how people treat you. It’s an extension of you. Maybe more than that, it’s your front cover. You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but everybody does. It’s one of the Read more >

Cycling to the Office PART 3: Footwear

If you’re a regular reader of Discerning Cyclist, you may have noticed that I’m a big advocate for stylish clothes that have performance aspects subtly built in suited for commuting on a bicycle. However, when it comes to cycling-friendly office shoes, I am, quite frankly, at a bit of a Read more >

Autumn: it’s the season that never lets you down, it gets dark, leaves fall off trees, epic sun rises and sunsets and it rains… a lot! So you’ve got two options: 1)  Pack up your bike, put your kit in the bottom drawer and start hitting the gym forgetting all Read more >

Bluff Works Wrinkle-Free Pants – Review

Finding trousers that are not only office-appropriate, but also cycling-friendly has been one of the toughest things to find since starting The Discerning Cyclist over two years ago. Some kecks look smart but don’t function too well. Some are poorly disguised performance wear. And some just don’t look good. Gah. Read more >

Stylish Cycling Shoes – Quoc Pham The Derby – Review

I’ve long been doubtful as to the value of ‘cycling shoes’ for commuter cyclists, like myself – probably because I’ve never owned a pair and have suffered no cycling atrocities despite this fact. The ones I have seen knocking around town haven’t changed my mind either, with many appearing to Read more >

Showcase: Ted Baker – Raising The Handlebars

A new season is upon us. Unfortunately that season is autumn heading into winter. Summer is over kids, go home. Sorry. The good news is that with the new season comes new clothes lines. The better news is that brands are finally waking up to the fact that most regular Read more >

Sako7Socks – Review

Style and panache on one’s bicycle are paramount. For someone with a little more talent I imagine they probably ‘let their legs do the talking’… if my legs could talk they’d probably be saying “can we get off now” or “when’s the cafe stop”. To this end I have no Read more >

How to Slim Your Wallet – Bellroy Review

An advert popped up on my Facebook feed not so long ago that I felt compelled to click. The link took me to a page telling me how to slim my wallet. My interest was piqued. A Marketing Tangent I love cycling. But I also have an unhealthy obsession with Read more >

Fairwear Silkroad Office Cycling Shirt – Review

When The Discerning Cyclist was launched in 2011, one of the key aspects I was interested in was finding cycling clothes that were office appropriate.

Hackett Cooper Bike Shorts & Polo – Review

Tom and Jerry, Batman and Robin, Morecambe and Wise, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, Marmite and Cheese… you should probably add Hackett and Cooper to that list of partnerships that just, well, work. Who? Cooper Bikes make bicycles – cool bicycles – and have done since 2009. They do form Read more >

Foska Heinz Tomato Ketchup Jersey – Review

We get sent all sorts of things at the Discerning Cyclist to check out – and this is certainly one of the most ‘interesting’ yet. Made by Foska, this Heinz Tomato Ketchup jersey is certainly an eye-catching number – something you’d expect from the people who shot to fame after Read more >

3 Vital Cycling Accessories for Rainy Days

It’s 8am,  I’m on the way to work and it’s pouring down with rain. Urgh. Cycling in the rain can often leave us asking: “why do I do this?” But, wrap up well, don the unflattering waterproofs and invest in some cheap accessories for your bike, and your journey’s will Read more >

Bianchi Men’s Modica Jacket – Review

Upon first glance of the Bianchi Modica Jacket on Probikekit, I wasn’t sure whether it was to the Discerning Cyclist’s typical taste, in that it appeared – online at least – to be more of a cycling jersey than a stylish jacket. However, when the jacket landed on my doorstep, Read more >

Timbuk2 Chug Laptop Backpack – Review

Now I’m not one to be seduced by cheap gimmicks, but the Timbuk2 Chug Laptop Backpack has a bottle opener on its strap. You heard. If that alone is not enough to convince you that you want this bag, then I guess you should continue reading the rest of the Read more >

Frankly Mens Basic Crew Tee – Review

My initial reaction when I got my hands on the Frankly Basic Crew Tee was somewhat of disappointment. The material seem too feel a little coarse – as though it may irritate the skin – and the fit around my chest seemed overly snug. Initially I was skeptical about even Read more >

Muxu Tempest ¾ Shorts Review

Summer’s here and, for me at least in sunny Gibraltar, shorts are now a daily necessity. Personally, I’m not usually a huge fan of ¾ length shorts; I feel they run just a little too far down your shin and, in doing so, offer a relatively unflattering fit. However, I Read more >

Vulpine Merino V-Neck T-shirt – Review

One thing that really sets Vulpine apart, and something of which I’m rather fond, is their attention to detail. As soon as you’ve received your order you know you’ve got your hands on quality. My order for the Merino V-neck t-shirt arrived in a fetching green Vulpine shoulder bag – a Read more >

Vulpine Lightweight Harrington Jacket Review

Finding a cycling jacket ready for the rigours of winter and the cold is a much easier task these days. Thicker softshell types, waterproofs and fleeces are widely available. Great. However, it has been known for the British Isles to warm up now and then and enter a season called Read more >

Frosty the Bike Messenger

Guest post by Andrew Stephen. Spring may have blossomed, but in the northern latitudes the air is still chill, the light still short, and cycling remains challenging even for enthusiasts.

Vulpine Softshell Jacket – Review

Okay, so this has been reviewed and given the plaudits by such sites such as The Washing Machine Post and, so it would be easy to end this review here with: ‘what they said’. I’m not going to do that though because I know how much you’re dying to Read more >

Muxu Town Jacket – Review

There are so many types of jackets that have the functionality required for a cycling journey. Some fare better than others in certain categories.

Endura Urban Pants – Review

When I’m searching for a good pair of pants to cycle in, I look for flexibility, breathability, horizontal front pockets, a bit of extra coverage for the behind and, of course, a bit of style and comfort. With the Endura Urban Pants, I can easily say that they tick all Read more >

Vulpine Long Sleeve Merino T-Shirt – Review

It’s getting to the time of year where we can shed a layer or two. Where the woolly hat is replaced with the cycling cap, the winter gloves no longer need the liner that provided such strong back up during those colder January days; one thing does remain constant all Read more >

Swrve Cycling Trousers – Review

Searching for some trousers that can take regular use on the bike, look smart enough when you see clients and also actually be warm and comfortable is quite a task. One of the curses of a regular cyclist is the developed leg muscle that seems to make nearly all trousers Read more >

Union 34 Men’s Paragon Long Sleeve Shirt – Review

It seems when most companies who produce smart cycling clothes start up they usually bring out a jersey/t-shirt as one of their first pieces, understandable it’s a key stable in the diet of cyclewear. Union 34 have mixed it up though and have no t-shirt in their startup range but Read more >

Vulpine Cycling Shorts – Review

Having swapped my clunky old hybrid for a beautiful (and very discerning) Cooper Kyalami to tackle my central London commute, it quickly became apparent that the least stylish thing on my bike (by quite some margin) was the rider. To help alleviate this, I decided new shorts were in order; my Read more >

Union 34 Element Water Resistant Trousers – Review

Helly Hansen Warm Base Layer – Review

Trakke Wee Lug Harris Tweed Messenger Bag – Review

To cycle with a bag is pretty much a necessity really. Very few occasions you will find it okay to leave the bag at home and venture out on the humble push bike alone. Finding a bag that suits your every day needs whilst suiting your riding style is no easy feat. The iL Read more >

Cleverhood Waterproof Cape – Review

The rain is a constant irritant to most cyclists but there are many jackets and coats around to help keep you as dry as possible. However they are not without their flaws. Breathable rain jackets are not truly waterproof and on the other side of the coin fully waterproof jackets Read more >

(Il) Soigneur Musette – Review
