6 Menswear Essentials from The Bike Shed

We’ve got a particular penchant for motorcycle-inspired apparel here at The Coolector which is why you’ll not be surprised to hear that The Bike Shed is one of our favourite menswear brands. If you’re of a similar mindset when it comes to your apparel, you’ll be pleased to hear that their digital shelves have been filled with awesome new releases that will see your wardrobe style elevated considerably. Check out our pick of 6 menswear essentials from The Bike Shed below:

BSMC ESTD. SWEATSHIRT – GREY MARL (£60)

This classic athletic grey ESTD. sweatshirt from The Bike Shed (£60) bears the evolution of the brand’s Rocker logo, which celebrates their decade of existence. It reminds them of their journey from pub table idea to their now multi-venue, global community brand – an impressive evolution indeed. Blood, sweat, tears, laughter and beers have gone into this versatile and great looking sweatshirt and it will add a great layering piece to your line up for the cooler nights this summer. For 2021, The Bike Shed went back to the drawing board with their sweatshirts, completely upgrading the fit and fabric of previous designs. (£60)


BSMC STEPS TRUCKER HAT (£25)

Every summer outfit needs some quality headwear and they don’t come much better than The Bike Shed Steps Trucker Hat (£25). This foam race trucker cap comes with a fresh angle on the brand’s Bike Shed logo and it has been designed by Alex Ramon-Mas who penned their original logo back in the day. (£25)


BSMC CLASSIC T-SHIRT (£35)

The Classic Bike Shed Logo, which, as mentioned, was originally penned by Álex Ramon Mas, has always been a firm favourite of this London based brand and when showcased on a simple, understated T-shirt it looks awesome. For this one, The Bike Shed thought they’d give it a whirl on their new forest green tee – and we’re mighty glad they did because it looks ace. (£35)


BSMC CLUB LONG SLEEVE WAFFLE (£50)

The Bike Shed’s crew neck, waffle knit, long-sleeve jersey (£50) with a simple flatlock hem has become a style staple for many of the BSMC crew and we’re equally as enamoured here at Coolector HQ. For this latest version, they have taken things back to basics, with just their simple members crest printed on the left chest. It is available in black on ecru and off white on black. (£50)


BSMC CUSTOM RESISTANT OVERSHIRT (£220)

Eye-catching in the extreme, this custom BSMC RESISTANT Overshirt has chain stitch embroidery (£220) by master craftsmen Giulio Miglietta. It is strictly limited to 20 pieces per colourway so you’ll need to move quickly if you want to get your hands on one. The Bike Shed have long followed Giulio’s breathtaking work and this RESISTANT Overshirt was the ideal garment for them to work with him on. Giulio hand makes each piece himself in his East London Workshop and utilises his vintage chain stitch machines and techniques to scribe his own iteration of The Bike Shed letters above the left chest pocket. A stand out addition to any wardrobe rotation. (£220)


BSMC ESTD. HOODIE (£65)

Another favourite layering piece of ours here at The Coolector, this ESTD. Hoodie from The Bike Shed (£65) is crafted from hard-wearing, brushed back 65% cotton 35% polyester fabric that will effortlessly keep pace with any adventures you find yourself on this summer. It features their BSMC logo on the chest and Club roundel back piece with a lined hood and full length central zip. (£65)
