With the excitement of the Tour de France, visiting this country’s fair shores still palatably fresh in the air and as I’m sure the more eagled eyed of our loyal readers will be asking themselves, Vulpine, Vulpine, that name sounds familiar. Well, yes it should be as back in February we reported on an inspired collaboration between, the wonderful Mr Oliver Spencer and this wonderful brand Vulpine. Where they teamed up to launch a limited edition tailored cycling blazer, designed with the urban cyclist in mind.
The man behind this cycling revolution is, Nick Hussey, who became obsessed by cycling watching the Tour de France as a kid and who like the great Sir Paul Smith, raced until injury cut short not particularly promising career in cycling.
After a dalliance into achieving a Sports Science and Physiology degree from Liverpool Uni, Nick found himself travelling over the East Lancs to Manchester where he found himself booking world-class DJs and promoting some of the most successful Club nights of the 90’s. After he, rather unsurprisingly, became tired of wearing a bullet proof jacket and having revolvers put in his face, ahhh the Manchester Club scene of the 90’s, what a time, Hussey reacquainted himself with his first love, that being cycling.
Always obsessed by cycling and style, with a particular love of British military and bespoke tailoring, Hussey launched Vulpine back in March 2012. A perfect balance of the technical know how of cycling apparel but without compromising one jot on style and taste and in doing so offers examples of great pieces which undoubtably will become wardrobe favourites. These pieces aren’t just for the urban cyclist, these look equally at home, meeting friends for a drink, a smart casual business meeting or just when you don’t know what else to wear but wanna look good.
