Hideto Suzuki launched his first collection of PEdALED in 2007. He wanted to design clothing that complimented his lifestyle. PEdALED’s philosophy is “go by bicycle.” And for that reason, PEdALED’s clothes are inspired by daily cycling function and aesthetics. They offer a vast collection of jackets, vests, trousers, shorts, t-shirts and accessories all designed with precision. PEdALED just launched their Born Again collection, a series of exclusive pieces all made with recycled military materials and vintage cycling garments. Each one is part of a 30 piece limited edition.
MENTORS NOTE: This stuff is COOL. Plain and simple. You don’t have to be Lance Armstrong (don’t even get me started on that subject) to appreciate quality cycling gear. The pieces, especially the jackets are clean and well fitted. They can easily be worn with jeans and a t-shirt. The Born Again collection has three great jackets. Our favorite is the Aviator jacket (top left). The moss green color works with neutrals or bright colors. The jacket is made from recylced military fabrics, the padded areas are recycled sleeping bags and the front of the jacket is made of stretcher fabric. Add the ergonomic sleeves and you are set! Pair it with a well worn pair of jeans and a heather gray v-neck tee.
