- Do you have to wear a suit at work, yet still want the safety of hi-vis yellow on your ride?
- No time to change at the office?

Fret no longer! Calvin Klein has a stylish new look just for you:



Sure to get you noticed on the roads and in the conference room. For added impact, just apply iron-on reflective trim around the pant legs.

... and if I ever see someone out there actually wearing this, I think I'd fall over laughing .

Remember back in the '80s when cycling shorts made a brief show as a form of womens' wear?

And of course there was messenger bag chic...

Well cyclists still use them, but I think the general public has moved on to other titillating fashion items... in fact this hi-vis suit appears to be the "next big trend... "

Stuff a few yellow feathers in your helmet and you can be Big Bird.

I've been wearing a hi-viz Roadcrafter (motorcycle) 1-pc overall suit for more than a decade now. I am SO far ahead of the times, it is amazing.
