Japan’s Outlier: PEdALED Cycling-Specific Cut-and-Sew
Founded by a disenfranchised garmento in 2007, but just now making its way to the United States, PEdALED brings Japanese craftsmanship to the cycling-specific menswear category with a comprehensive cut-and-sew collection with downright enlightening marriages of form & function.
There are straightforward button-ups like the denim cpo shirt with its oversized wooden buttons, or the slim-cut riding oxford, which boasts a thoughtful back hip pocket to stash shades or wallet while in the saddle.
Check out the lounge-ready bike sweat parka, & faded-red bike polo, or the re vest, a lightweight patchwork quilted piece that has almost a camo aesthetic with all its different shades of olive drab.
But the pants & jackets are where PEdaLED really shines. Its denim jacket hits just below the hip, and its denim is generously cut for comfort on the bike; both have reflective materials woven into their whiskers. Not only do you get an impressive wear-pattern befitting your best A.P.C. s, but you also get to not get hit by a car. Damn, that’s slick.
All the pieces — including the parkas, which are next-level with herringbone colorblocking and intelligent pass-through placement — are sewn from natural materials like hemp, linen, and organic cottons.
