I love the idea of a merino tie-dye tee and if I have faith that anyone can do it, it’s Outlier:
“It’s no secret that we think our pure 17.5 micron merino is a gem on its own and makes for the best damn t-shirt we’ve ever worn. So we took a little trip at the studio and hand tie-dyed a small batch of them using natural indigo to make the best damn tie-dyed shirt we’ve ever worn. Made in the Bay Area with New Zealand Fabric and hand-dyed at the Outlier Studio in Brooklyn. We hand-dyed a small batch of 30, and due to the nature of the process, each piece is unique.
A note about the dyeing process:
We took our Near White Ultrafine Merino T-Shirts, wrapped them up and immersed them in natural indigo dye. When the shirts are removed, the indigo oxidizes creating a permanent bond with the merino fibers. The shirts are then treated with a dye fixative, then washed with a special detergent to remove any extraneous particles and finally hung to dry in a sunny corner of our studio. Since they’re hand dyed, there will be variation in each of the patterns.”
Portland’s 21st Ave Bikes can’t promise you love at first sight, but you could always try one on for size.
Scott from Cornfed Indianapolis just posted up some shirts. That Bongripper sticker alone merits the scoop, much less how rad the Cornfed videos are. All proceeds go to keeping this grassroots group alive and to help Scott’s courier company, Indy Couriers!

This icon has been floating around for years and now it’s made its way onto a sweatshirt from MASH. Scoop one up here!
Looks like the project that Dustin from Cadence has been working on with artist PEZ has finally launched!

These Manual for Speed REFLECTIVE logo tees were printed up by Ice Cold and LQQK! in NYC. They’re in stock now at Manual for Speed but won’t last. Literally. They’re probably already gone…
Check out the first drop from Cadence’s newest line entitled Turbo. I love a good, small pocket knife and the Coin looks to be just that. Also check out the new graphic tees and tanks.

Before my duffle bag with all my clothing and cycling apparel was stolen in SF (die, bastards!), my Team Dream Team Bicycle Team Bobcat shirt was going to be a summer staple. Bobcats are cool because nature is metal and I love pocket tees. Or, if front-graphic tees are more your style, why not pick up a “Woody” edition:
“Meet Thomas “Woody” Wood, proprietor of Golden Saddle Cyclery, cycling coach, former messenger, US Olympic mechanic, Master Track National Champion, new dad, and all around good dude. This tall tree took a spill mountain biking and now has a rather large accumulation of medical bills that need to be paid.”

This is absolutely hysterical. Pure genius from Locked Cog. Swoop here.
I’m digging this new sweatshirt from Brother Cycles:
“Our latest collaboration with illustrator Matt Blease, the ‘Bruv Luv’ design sweatshirt. Each item individually hand screen printed onto heavy duty Russell Athletic 80/20 cotton blend sweatshirts for a hard wearing product.
Features a highly reflective 3M print ‘Oak Leaf’ logo on the back right for visibility whilst riding at night.”
