Bike fashions for the young and skinny from Topman

by bikeboy76   August 14, 2014  

Apparently cycling is now cool enough for the kids. Topman has a range of quite skinny clothing called 'Velo' Featuring a lot of summer styles and frenchness and stripes.

Sartorial thoughts gentlemen?

Vests? Goes against Rule #7 unless used in terms of Rule #21 surely? Thinking

Rules aside, the only one I sort of like is the black/cream L'etape t-shirt and even then I'm not going to fork out £22 for it.

I know there has been a few posts about not making negative comments about peoples bodies/shapes on this site, but I'm sensing a slight loop hole here as it's a model on another site, but have a look at state of this:

Those legs have hardly seen much pedalling have they. Christ, even his Chucks are frigging baggy.

Topshop really haven't thought this through.

Topman. Fashion. Two different sentences and it kinda works.

Hmm, I'm under 30, 175cm and 62kg - so one might conceivably call me young and skinny. (waist 29inches, so vanity sized "28 inch" trousers usually fit).

And I'm no Chris Hoy.

Despite this, I've never found trousers in Topman with *any* room in the crotch, let alone the legs and thighs.

These don't look much different, though I should go see them in person!

I remember, 1991 seems so far away now.

Chamois Cream for your jeans?
