Road Roundup: Street Smart, Road Ready Clothing from Road Holland, BetaBrand, Search & State, and Marc De Storm
Cycling trends are a constant cycle of boom and bust, and the latest appears to be a movement towards more stylish garments, that are at home both on the bike and on the streets.
The following new products exemplify some of the very best of this trend.
With a collar, three button placket, and clean design, the Den Haag jersey harkens back to European cycling wear of the 40s and 50s for it’s inspiration.
Made in America from a soft Merino wool polyster blend (39/61), it is available in six different colors – Bright White, Midnight Blue, Road Black, Royal Orange, Racing Green, and Lavender.
In the back, there are two back pockets which feature a flap back closure system. The jerseys are available in everything from XS-XXXL for optimum fit and retail for $130. Right now, they’re currently offering 15% off with promo code”Dadsday” in honor of father’s day, on any product on the website.

New from Search and State, the SR-2 is their toughest jersey to date. Built for abuse, this jersey is constructed here in the United States from a lightweight, breathable, moisture wicking fabric, that will last for many seasons.

The rear pockets are reinforced with elastic and utilize a locking Riri zipper, while the jersey is held in place with a waist gripper elastic.
Available in size S-XL, the S2-R will set you back $195. Pick yours up here.
