Each year cycling’s spring season arcs towards its brutal, unrelenting climax on the final Sunday of the cobbled classics - Paris-Roubaix. One of the sport’s ‘monuments’ (the oldest, hardest and longest one-day races of all). Roubaix forces the riders over miles of cobbled farm tracks, roads to break wheels and will. This has lead to the nickname The Hell of The North and immortalised in the famous documentary film A Sunday In Hell.
Our Arenberg ’68 range of tees feature our unique chevron pattern inspired by the cobbled pavé of northern France. The Arenberg ’68 logo subtly references the arrow-straight trench road through the Arenberg forest, and the cobblestone trophy that awaits the victor. A Handmade Cyclist hip label in the fresh green of spring completes the look.
The choice of fabric for our t-shirts is part of a long process. First, we touch. Is it the softness and the style we want? Secondly, we feel. Is it nice and comfortable to wear? Thirdly, we pay close attention to detail. Does it have top notch stitching? Finally we look. Is the cut right?
We also analyse, is it sustainable? We only choose fabrics made from sustainable material, such as organic cotton because it uses less energy and less water, resulting in less waste.
The factory your garment is made in is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation and a part of the Fashion Revolution movement (www.fashionrevolution.com). We believe workers deserve to be treated with respect and that we have a responsibility to provide you with goods that are made with thought for the community it was made in. No brainer really.
