Correct Bikeware Dressage

Post  Hammy on Wed 28 Aug 2013, 8:12 am

Yes you wondered what the hell this was about didn't ya  ?   I recently bought a nice new leather bike jacket. M2R. Great price.  Obviously you should wear your bike gloves over the cuffs of a jacket so that the wind don't blow up ya sleeves.  I have several pairs of gloves but they all seem to be really tight to fit over the sleeve.  Does anyone else have this fashion delema ?  Will things just settle into place after some time ?  Should I buy a pair of those gloves that the coppers wear on the TV show "Heartbeat"  ?   Please help.  As I am embarresed to go out in public dressed incorrectly.  Such shame.  Sad

Clearly you need to buy some fingerless leather gloves to match....

Another dressage dilema: I like having my jeans tucked in my boots to stop any flapping in the breeze but apparently this is how the NZ farmere wear their jeans and boots when they go "shearing" sheep so I have decided to wear my jeans over my boots. As for the wind going up the sleeves of the jacket, up here in Nth QLD its never cold enough to be a real worry.

I sewed Velcro squares to outside of sleeve cuff, so they adjust tighter or loose, depends when I want gloves under or over cuffs.....

With my winter dryrider jacket I can only go over the sleeves with the gloves. When I tried this with my new Aldi leather jacket i found it was impossible. The cuff on the Aldo jacket is stiff and loose. The gloves work better under the sleeve. 

So I figure just do what works

That's so simple to answer Very Happy Gloves must be worn over cuffs unless its raining then its cuffs over gloves (so rain doesn't run down the sleave an fill them up )

 Jeans are always worn over boots ,no exception .Bar ,baaar .
Leather pants are worn inside boots .

Its Gods Law .Razz

A white t-shirt or jumper should never be worn on the outside .Never, never, never ever .

I think the NZ farmers have found velcro quite handy as well   Razz

The only thing that matters is if you put your left glove on first or not lol!
