The Official Spring-Summer 2009 Preview

In the past several years, everyone and their mothers – including Kanye and Pharrell – have been delving into fixed-gear bicycle culture. And high-profile labels have been taking notice: Obey and Vans, amongst others, have recently released fixie-themed collections. San Francisco-based cap conoisseurs The Official Crown of Laurel have released a sneak peak of their upcoming spring/summer collection, and it’s looking like they’re the next label to release dope cycling-influenced apparel. The collection includes a variety of fitted caps, 5-panel campers, and meshbacks, and thus far, all of their designs are looking excellent – particularly those featuring embossed bike chains. More information forthcoming!

  1. Hey Mark,
    I wanted to reach out and introduce myself. I do marketing for Chrome and wanted to keep you in the loop for what we’re working on. I’m a fan of format and saw this post and think our brand would be a good fit for your site. Chrome builds messenger bags and has developed a full line of urban riding gear. Our product blurs the line between urban fashion and daily technical riding gear. Below is a pdf link of our catalog to give you a better sense of the Chrome brand. Check it out and let me know if it warrants interest for any future product reviews.

    Thanks & i look forward to working with you in 2009!
