There's no such thing as bad weather... Just bad clothing! Autumn comes around like clock work every year (22nd September) this year to be specific, so planning ahead is imperative - especially this side of the border; blue skies and heats of 25 degrees one minute and tsunami effects the next!
Luckily, technology is ever advancing in the print manufacturing and textile industry and we're able to provide our customers with the most appropriate specification of garment for all seasons. The general rule of thumb is to protect your core extremities, if they're protected you'll be riding in relative comfort.
Throughout, the next few months or so, you're going to have to build your winter wardrobe too. It's about quality rather than quantity; often we're told to layer up, but remember whatever you put on, will at some point have to come off, which can potentially leave you fighting a battle with the elements which aint going to be fun! Our prices are certainly the most genuine on the market; you don't have to pay through the nose for guaranteed quality. You will still have a garment that allows for breathability, comfort, performance and of course is aesthetically pleasing - dressing for comfort doesn't mean you need to look like a dafty!
