Classic Style

One of the concepts that I've been super into the past few years is the idea of "Classic Style."  Things that look great and will always look great, garments that never go out of style.  Black jeans, flannels, Chuck Taylor's, Ray Ban Wayfarers, etc.  These are just classic looks.

If you look at the AC line, you can see this influence in our classic paint schemes, details, and in our softgoods such as the wool long sleeve jersey.  It is classic on the bike apparel that will always be cool.

One of the websites that I love is the Selvedge Yard, a blog about many things, but most of all classic style.

I was reading it today and came across an article about LIFE's photos of the Hell's Angels from 1965 shot by Bill Ray. 

They are emotional, evocative, and timeless.  Especially check out the women, so badass.

Mr. Pink: Now with more Pink.

Since the arrival of the Mr. Pink into our lineup five years ago people have been asking "Why is it not pink?" Our answer to that question has always been that it would have been way too obvious for our tastes. However last year, when we produced the All-City X Fulton team bikes in a Bridgestone / Merckx inspired paint scheme, it became clear that we could and should use that template to create a Merckx / Telekom tribute.
