Clothing for any time, anywhere  

As cyclists, we often take more pride in what we wear on two wheels than what we wear for the majority of the day. Our desire to be seen in the latest aero jersey or lightweight bibs can easily become prioritised over how we dress at social events. However, at the Emporium you don’t have to choose between one or the other, there’s plenty of casual wear options from merino sweaters to woven pants, you’ll be able to find something to wear when lounging at home or out for a Sunday lunch.

T-shirts & shirts 

 The staple choice of any wardrobe is a selection of good t-shirts and shirts that can be worn day in, day out for whatever life may throw at you. Fabric composition plays a part depending on what time of the year it is, people often lean more towards merino in the cooler months for its insulating properties and linen in the summer when breathability is a priority.

We’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t admit design plays arguably the most important part when it comes to wardrobe decisions. At the Emporium you will be glad to find a vast array of designs from brands such as Apres Velo, Katusha, Band of Climbers and Club Ride Apparel with something to suit your mood and style for whatever the occasion.

Sweaters & hoodies   

After a hard days riding there’s almost nothing better than relaxing on the couch in a warm hoodie or sweater. If stepping out for dinner try a merino knit, these will keep you insulated from a cold night while looking that bit sharper than a sweater. For a more toned down casual look, opt for a classic hoodie in a grey marl or navy blue to easily mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe.

Pants & shorts

Some days it’s not necessary or convenient to dress head to toe in lycra for your daily commute. A simple pair of durable, elastic shorts or pants may often be a better option when catching up with friends in between cruising around the city. The inclusion of elastane in cotton blends has meant that traditional pant styles can now function on the bike too. For a casual look that works well both on and off the bike try a pair of chino pants, shorts  or even a cotton trouser with elastic ankles and reinforced crotch.
