Isadore Apparel

As the 2015 cycling season played out, I was in the position of deciding what I would do for 2016.  The team I was with for the last 3 seasons had slowly withered, and looked to be dead for 2016.  It was a small team to start with, and for me that was fine.  I had always raced for smaller teams, and enjoyed the tactical freedom.

I finally decided I would race unattached to an established team for 2016, but that lead me to reach out to Isadore Apparel.  I wanted to establish a connection with a premium brand clothing company and develop a lasting relationship.  A relatively new clothing company to the cycling industry, Isadore Apparel seemed to be a perfect fit.  With clothing hand made in Slovakia, the brand has a good presence in Europe, but little exposure here in the US.  They are happy to have some exposure here in the US, and I am excited to be representing such a quality line of clothing.

Established by the Velits brothers who race professionally, I reached out to the company and set the ball rolling.  I had strong expectations of the clothing line, but I had no idea how much it would change my riding.  Isadore Apparel not only has the most luxurious feel, it also does an amazing job of regulating temperature for a wide range of riding conditions.  I could see the quality form the moment the first packages arrived.  Attention to detail is evident, and the fit is perfect.

I’m looking forward to 2016 and racing in some of the finest clothing available.

Wednesday Wedding Regrets #10

Last in this series of wedding regrets is the dress not fitting.  I feel it is very important to work with a professional in this area.  A good fit is a must, and just as important, the dress needs to be comfortable.  A poor fitting dress is a big distraction and makes for a very uncomfortable  experience.  My suggestions would be to spend some time in the dress at the initial fitting to ensure comfort.  While initially the fit may feel fine, spending some time in the dress will give a better indication of where comfort issues might arise.  Do you recall that pair of shoes that you only wore one time, even though they felt great in the store?
