Pon­cey spoilt jour­nal­ists (like me) o en say cool bike jack­ets are good enough for the pub. Which is true, as long as you want to stand at the bar in bike kit. This jacket gen­uinely is Black Swan­ready, how­ever. Waxed can­vas with a mem­brane to keep weather out, it’s lined with Dyneema for proper abra­sion re­sis­tance and has wool in­serts on the cu­s and col­lar for warm and com­fort, and works on a bike. It’s not quite as warm as ‘nor­mal’ tex­tile kit in deep win­ter, but is far less bulky and doesn’t make you look bloated – the de­sign and …t make even a style-cab­bage like me feel cool or­der­ing a pint.
