It’s that moody, bipolar time of year again when the seasons are fighting for ownership and we, Northeasterners, are desperately cheering in Spring’s corner. Decisions about what exactly to wear can be as daunting as whether it’s just warm enough to dust off our bicycles or still too cold for that exhilarating open air. As we approach April days when the temps finally make it above 40 degrees (really, it’s still that dire here..) and as long as it’s sunny, why not throw on a warm, yet respectable-spring jacket and hop on that bike you’ve long missed for your next commute about town.
We’ve recently discovered the Union Garage Robinson Jacket and feel you should too. Built to handle the harshest streets in New York City with confidence and class as you breeze from one borough to another, the Robinson Motorcycle Jacket is made of waxed cotton that’s durable enough to withstand crazy winds and everyday use. This piece of American-made
clothing was produced with Vanson Leathers NYC, and contains smart, hidden features and pockets, making it more comfortable, practical and protective than most of the jackets out there. We’re already big fans of Union Garage; an über cool motorcycle gear shop in Red Hook dedicated to outfitting riders with the most stylish, yet intelligently-made items a bike-aficionado covets.
The Robinson Jacket is just one of the more custom, NYC-centered products currently offered through Union Garage among many more to come. The shop also keeps New York label, Schott, on hand which makes perfect sense really, considering the brand’s penchant for locally made products. At this point we’re all more than ready to set our coats ablaze and bask in the warmth of summer, but before we get there be sure to check out the in-between styles for the perfect outerwear at Union Garage in Brooklyn, or online. Whether striding or riding, you’ll definitely do it all in style.
