    Commuter Fashion

    OK, granted, in VT we are more known for flannel than for our fashion sense, but I don't think I'll be sporting this little number from the Pedal Savvy fashion show on my commute anytime soon...

    Aren't her boobs too big to be a model?

    Anyway, I guess its cool to be fashionable to an extent, but I prefer function and don't worry too much about looking good. All I try and do is not look like a train wreck.

    What!! No matching designer helmet? Maybe a couple of Blinky Straps on each cheek to complete the red-light district look? Next, they'll have speedos with chamois fo rmen?. The very thought makes Spandex stretched over a too large frame sound good.

    while I don't think that particular outfit will catch on soon, after reading the article I do have to agree that there's plenty of room for functional, yet fashionable clothing that can work on the bike and in the workplace. While I don't see a gore-tex 3-piece suit with reflective cuffs catching on anytime soon, I would very much like to see more clothing that doesn't require a full change-out when you get to the office.

    Way cooler than that baggy tattered hipster look. I say bring on the umbrella girl / race bunny kits -->

    As long as whoever is wearing those outfits look like those ladies, I have no problem with them.

    The ridiculousness of cycling clothes increase exponentially in relation to the distance from your bicycle.

    MTBX, stop posting pictures of yourself it makes the rest of us feel bad about our bodies.

    I posted a pic of my commuter fashion on the "How Was Your Commute" thread on Friday. Muddy is in! I look pretty similar to that most days in the summer, sans the mud.

    I'm not too fashionable on my commute. I generally have on mountain bike shorts, some sort of synthetic t-shirt (EMS Tekwik usually) and an REI 25L internal frame backpack.. If it's really hot out I'll wear spandex, but since I'm the only one in an office building of around 600 people who rides to work, I admittedly feel a little weird walking to my desk with just spandex on (I DO have nice legs though...).

    ha! Not likely, I am more likely spotted in a merino T & baggies.
    Today though I got some bike shoes (for the x-bike) in my least favorite colors for MTB shoes - white, with silvery mesh. How dumb for shoes that get dirty. But for $24.99 on gearscan from $240 (only my size was available), I will sacrifice my idea of fashion for function. They looked big, but they feel wonderful, much better fit than my black ones from Big S.
