Le Coq Sportif Vintage Cycle Jerseys
Friday 24/06/11 - 04.11PM
Big shouts out to Marc over at Le Coq Sportif and Tea and Cake PR for sorting me out with tow vintage cycle tops from the brands heritage range! Marc spotted our ONLY Cycle Jersery Collab a few weeks ago and being a avid roadie these days I bite his hand off for the offer of a couple of tops.
The two jerseys are proper old school made from a knitted cotton fabric and including button up back pockets. They're going to be a little too warm for this Summers riding but i'm sure they'll work very well on an Autumn ride. Its interest to see Le Coq Sportif making cycles jerseys again and as it turns out they are the official supplier of sports clothing to this years Tour de France. Nike have being suppling the tops in recent tours but this return by LCF sees them recapture a heritage of producing tops for forty years to some of the most famous riders, from Jacques Anquetil to Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx.

Edwin Sneak Peek Factory Video
Friday 10/06/11 - 10.43AM
While browsing the internet, we stumbled across this very interesting video. The Japanese clothing brand Edwin are showing a sneak peek video showing their complicated and very high-quality denim making process. In the video, Edwin, which is an anagram of Denim, if you didn't know, shows each process from cutting the denim and stitching pockets to how the wash and fade is applied. We feel that it is a good idea to show our customers exactly what goes into making these premium denim jeans. The best example of this is the Edwin Ed39 Denim Jeans with Blue Oiler Wash, where you can see just how much work has been put into making a premium quality pair of jeans.

ONLY NY X Urban Industry Team Cycle Jersey
Tuesday 07/06/11 - 10.42AM
I've always ridden one form of bike whether it be an MTB or BMX, in fact I could probably put cycling down as a direct contribution for me opening a store in the first place, but that’s another long story for another day.
Over the last few years a few of us here at Urban Industry been getting more involved in cycling again mainly as a means to get fit. We bought some racing bikes and hit the roads. Every Sunday we look to do 30 miles or so, more of a social ride than a fast sportive, usually finishing in a pub beer garden. We rode in the Sunday jaunt that is the 54 miles of the Classic London to Brighton ride last year and plan to do it again this year, something to aim for and hey, its all for charity!
Because of this passion for cycling of any kind and the fact its become a major past time for me, I really wanted to produce our own, fully fledged cycle jersey and being a store with 80+ brands we decide this was a collaboration too good to miss out on.
ONLY NY was my first choice. We've been selling ONLY for almost 2 years now and the brand has gone from strength to strength. With our store based in the South East of England and with ONLY NY in the West side of Manhattan we thought it would provide the best point of difference of riding styles and backdrops. With this lookbook we contrast the leafy lanes of Sussex with the streets of New York, the geared road bike style approach to the casual shorts and fixies.
The ONLY NY X Urban Industry Team Cycle Jersey is hand made in the UK in very limited amounts. Its a fully fledged race top, made from Bioactive Polyester fabric which is lightweight and odour resistant. We include a half zip at the neck and 3 stow pockets on the back for inner tubes, bananas, energy bars whatever you need..
Nike Tennis Classic Ac Leather Quickstrike in Pecan
Tuesday 07/06/11 - 10.12AM
Nike are just starting to send out their QuickStrike collections for the summer season. We have a number of shoes coming through and the first drop is this Nike Tennis Classic AC Leather ‘NSW Vintage Clay’ Pack. Simple, yet premium Pecan leather, the shoes are inspired by the Clay court season ahead. The uppers feature soft leather with a simple white sole unit and green trim line.
As soon as these Nike QuickStrike Classic Ac Leather shoes came into our store, Dan couldn't resist trying out another pair of Nike's. When we took them outide we instantly noticed their comfort and super-grippy sole, which would be great for use both on and off the court. The premium leather uppers also seemed to be highly durable and really looked the part in contrast to the fresh white soles.
