    The Official Athena/ Clyde Fashion Thread

    Special Credit to BillyDon for the idea, now he better join in haha! Who knows, with all this mathcing going on lately, I just may become the next fashion diva. FTR, Gina is sweatin' me about the "not really matching anything" helmet.

    I'll start it off. My colors are plain and simple, never really trying to match anything but after the last Love2Pedal.com shipment, I did order the yellow and blue stitching on the shorts. Worked perfectly with the jerseys and bike colors.

    First of, Sunday's fashion ride. I was on my Cannondale sporting my yellow stitching on the shorts and yes, that is a brand new first ride yellow jersey (old one was 6 years old and tearing around the camera pocket).



    Last week's ride was on my Lemond showing that an outift can be matched to the bike. This wekend's ride on the Lemond was accented by yellow socks just to blow BillyDon's fashion sense. BTW, yellow socks were "Breathless Agony" socks. You have to earn them so not everybody has them. They are a rarity on the bike trail. I hsould have taken pics of the socks but Bily hadn't dreamed up this thread yet haha!



    Next are the blue Falconi shorts, blue stitching with the blue jersey. Still matching the bike and accents with they yellow and blue of the Rubba Duckey socks.



    With Gina, it's usually about "The Pink". Her bike is dark blue but while coordiating he pink with black, it actually makes her bike look darker which blends in the blue to match the outfit.



    We are budget shoppers so none of my jerseys are over $20 and Gina does find nice a bargains on workout type clothes at places like Kohl's. She found her pink outerlayer on a clearance rack for $10. A little enhancing of the outer shell really makes the garment look a little more expensive if done right. Notice the she uses the pink garment to match the Giro helmet sporting pink flames.




    Finally because her bike is blue, she will wear a blue helmet accompanied by a blue jersey and a blue underlayer on those days where she is not sure whether the weather will be cool or warm.

    If for some reason the temps should rise, the underlayer (paid $10 at Target) can be removed for better ventilation and rolled up into a very small bundle and easily placed into a jersey pocket for storage.

    Clydes and Athenas, feel free to add any of your glamour shots to the thread! That's what it's for, post pics of your best outifts, those that make you proud.

    I tend to be mismatched on my best days.



    Above, you see the helmet matches the jersey which matches the gloves which matches the bike, sort of.

    I saw a yellow and black stripped merino cycling jersey at the thrift store a month ago, and could have looked like a killer bee on a road bike. But I passed the opportunity up.

    At least somewhat related to fashion, I wear cashmere sweaters when I bike in cold weather. They breath better than anything else on the planet, and I wind up not sweating much. Plus, they make silk feel like steel wool by comparison. No pics, though, 'cause I don't have a working camera.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I like jerseys that you have to earn, like Mr. Beanz socks. The only other one I'll wear is my Marvin the Martian jersey.

    I have the rights to "buy" the Breathless Agony and Big Bear jerseys but the way I see it, they should give you the jersey for doing the rides. $80 per jersey, that's 4 tires right there!

    Actually it's frustrating. The jerseys are XXL and don't fit me. Even when I order a tshirt, they never have XXL. Of course I never find out till delivery day so I have shirts I can't wear! I tried on the BA XXL and no way am I paying $80 to ride in something that doesn't fit, and that is the largest size offered.

    Wish they still made them using Powerdry.

    That's my favorite jersey material.

    Here's my submission from a race on Jan 31. Function over style (but hey, black is slimming, isn't it?), especially when it's -7F and windy at the start and you're riding on a frozen river (I'm #104 in the photo).

    Starting at the top: Helmet with iced up goggles affixed, fleece balaclava, long sleeve jersey, windproof jacket, rain jacket, two pairs of tights, bib shorts, two pairs of wool socks, winter boots, and some warm gloves.

    I think it depends, if the ride has an entry fee, then they should give you the jersey for free, figure that the event ordering them is probably getting them for $20 wholesale, so if they are charging an entry fee and then more then the retail price for a jersey, that's just not right....

    I'm not talking about the ones you can buy if you finish, I'm talking about the ones that they give you after a ride! As far as the standard Jerseys not fitting you, didn't I tell you that one of these days all the steroid use would catch up to you.

    Here's my current favorite jersey.


    BTW, Beanz, have you tried the club fit jerseys? They usually fit me better than the race cut. I don't think I have the guns you have though.

    Here I am tearing it up in Galesburg, IL, in my first race, circa 1985. I'm sporting some cheapo Nashbar shorts, a cotton Cannondale jersey, cotton crochet gloves, paper-thin cheap leather shoes and my original Bell Biker helmet:

    Fashion Lurking

    Dang Beanz.... got to admit the blue stitching on the shorts works very well too! And the up-angle photo is a smart fashion technique as well... very clever. You look marvelous and are a sartorial role-model for us all.

    I promise that I shall make my BF fashion debut soon... the bibs with the red stitching have arrived and the fit is good. Now I'm waiting for the right lighting!

    PS: I must concur with Gina on the need for complementary helmet.

    Excellent black and white outfit for more formal rides! Well done! I would accessorize with black shoes and white socks, of course!
