Fashion Cafe To Go: Introducing Makers and Riders

Just a quick intro today, with a follow-up review coming fairly soon. If you've seen these already, feel free to jump in. It's...

Makers & Riders, a Chicago-based company making elegant-yet-hardcore commuter pants, and a top as well, for men.

All I can tell you is that they're aiming for the fashionable cyclist, a rapidly reproducing (some would say invasive) species, found in places like Seattle. Where it rains. I know this because they're selling at my local bike-fashion boutique, the truly awesome Hub and Bespoke. But in truth, almost every major US city east and south of Seattle is more fashionable, so I'll mostly be testing the pants for rainproof-nes. I like that they're really just a waterproof pants company. There's a lot to be said for picking one thing and doing it very well, particularly as the bike fashion rack becomes more and more crowded. They also have a lot of interesting perspectives on how to manufacture textiles, which I'll get into more in the full-blown review.

Oh, and if you want to try their pants for free, go here.
