Commuter Suit Takes Cyclists From Bike To Boardroom

Commuter Suit Takes Cyclists From Bike To Boardroom
Innovation

Specially designed suit allows bikers to forgo the change into formal office attire.

Cycling to work often involves a lot of changing clothes, but San Francisco-based Parker Dusseau could soon put an end to that with their highly anticipated Commuter Suit. It’s designed to wick away moisture, allows for an uninhibited range of motion while riding, and also means you get to look great on two wheels. There are plenty of other bike-friendly features as well.

The suit’s jacket and pants are made of a premium Australian merino wool that’s intertwined with just enough spandex to allow for easy movement while also regulating body temperature. An added moisture resistant finish also keeps you dry from rain and snow, with enough ventilation to let sweat escape. Parker Dusseau’s dress shirt also pulls moisture from the skin, and features articulated shoulders to allow for the most aggressive of riding positions.

Pants are an essential part of the cyclist’s outfit, and Parker Dusseau’s suit trousers have a lot to offer. The crotch has a special diagonal cut that allows for easier movement and higher durability, and to keep the leg of the pant from getting caught in the chain, a button cuff that is only visible when rolled-up provides just the right amount of protection.

So instead of having to always carry a change of clothes to the office, it might be a good idea to invest in one of these multi-functional suits. Available in both charcoal and navy, the limited run Commuter Suit can be found from Parker Dusseau online where jackets start at $485, pants $245 and the moisture wicking dress shirt goes for $145.
