Simple, functional, and oh-so-lovely, Dutch is a delightful companion to any bike ride. An intricate knotwork design is emblazoned across the chest, and the body is worked in the round before steeking, which creates a durable front edging. Slender sleeves and shaped shoulders balance the oversized body for a flattering look; extra-long sleeves can be cuffed up or folded out to cover your wrists when you reach for the handlebars. Easy snap closure and low, wide neckline let you regulate your body temperature. 100% wool, Brooklyn Tweed Loft is tough yet lightweight and warm – the perfect combination for cyclists.
