GAGE + DESOTO MEN'S
Whether preordained at birth (i.e., you're Italian or Japanese), or willfully chosen, we all have our favorite road gruppo. Campagnolo Record has a storied, European history, and with it a healthy dose of Italian glamour. SRAM Red has can-do American attitude and value. And Shimano Dura-Ace has...wait, what exactly does Shimano have?
Ok, Shimano is meticulously engineered and brought us near-perfection in its first iteration of electronic shifting. It works flawlessly and always. But the real knock against Japan's top tier group has always been a lack of soul. No longer. Viva Duracci!
This shirt, designed by Gage + Desoto plays on the decades-old inside joke of pronouncing Dura-Ace with an Italian twist.
Who (or what) is Gage + Desoto? Just like you and me, they're bike racing nerds. But unlike you and me they have the sort of design nous to be thought of as trendsetters in the hyper-self conscious design scene of Brooklyn. Let's ride their coattails and look fabulous, shall we?
This is an American Apparel Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve Crew Neck shirt. It's 50% polyester and 50% combed cotton. The combed cotton is what gives American Apparel tees their ultra-soft and worn-in feel with a superior drape. It's designed to be slim-fitting and is unisex.
