Check out nau.com. Very interesting Portland based-company clothing retailer/manufacturer. Their clothing has a lot of spillover into cycling applications. I have their merino wool sweater, baselayer, merino shirt, two shorts (spandex in the fabric) and softshell pants which I use when riding in the city or commuting. The cut of everything I have works well on the bike.
Sustainable business practices, small carbon footprint business model and and performance wear that fits in with real life.
No relation to the company, just impressed by what I saw in Portland. It's a smaller business but one which I want to succeed.
funny though, some of the better stuff was slashed down to be affordable.
