Why cyclists wear cycling T-shirts
There is no written rule that you should wear your professional cycling gear all the time even if you are a cycling guru. Imagine stepping into a coffee shop alone and all geared up. While you may love the attention and being the head turner, you also want to enjoy your coffee without people staring at your tight-fitting cycling gear.
You can express yourself and your love for your craft in a subtle way. That is why here at Mellow Johnny’s, we devote our time to come up with cycling T shirts to suit your tastes. You can easily blend with the crowd while showing off your love for your bicycle, thanks to our signature T-shirts.
You can wear them on casual days, when you go on errands or when you hang out with friends. Show them how much you love cycling with our wide selection of cycling shirts. You can even buy some and give them to your friends as gifts! They come in various colors and sizes for men and women, perfect for those days when you just want to take things easy.
How to choose the right cycling T-shirt
Bicycle T shirts went through several transformations through the years before they became what they look like today. What started out as a workwear staple has turned into a fashion statement that everyone loves to wear. Both men and women are fond of wearing T-shirts because they give them a modern vibe.
It is not enough that you choose cycling T shirts with catchy prints or perfectly-fitting fabrics. You should also consider your body shape and measurements. But, most people don’t usually pay attention to such important details when buying T-shirts. You can avoid this mistake by checking out your body type and size before you make your purchase.
Doing this will help you choose the right clothes to wear or customize them to fit your personal style.
At Mellow Johnnys, you can choose from various T-shirt types that are perfect for warmer or colder days.
- Short-sleeved shirts. For warmer days, you can opt for short-sleeved shirts, like the Mellow Johnny’s Coral Tee for women, so you can show your support for our brand. You can also choose the Ride Your Bike T-shirt for men to show off your cycling enthusiasm and encourage your fellow cyclists.
- Long-sleeved shirts. There are months when you want to keep the chilly air out while going out for a ride or an errand. You can check out the Baseball Johnny Heather Tee in red and blue or MJ’s long sleeve tee in military green and navy colors.
Looking great while riding a bike is one thing, but you can't always wear your cycling jerseys on casual days. But thanks to the stylish shirts from Mellow Johnny’s available in various styles, colors and sizes, you can now get off your bike and still look lit while hanging out with your friends. You can even get comfy on your couch as you tune in to the sports channel.
Bicycle T-shirt buying guide
Just to set the record straight, cycling shirts look like your regular shirts, only that they are designed with cycling-themed prints. But what makes Mellow Johnny’s bicycle T shirts stand out?
The answer lies in the quality of materials used.
Crafted meticulously with top-calibre fabrics perfect for everyday comfort, our cycling shirts will not disappoint even the pickiest of buyer.
To ensure that you select the right cycling shirt, here are a few pointers to help you out:
Find the right fit
While bicycle T shirts are the top picks for casual occasions, choosing the right fit will make you stand out, especially if you wear a classic-themed T-shirt like The Freestyle from Mellow Johnny’s. It comes in different sizes and available in red.
Whatever size you choose, make sure that it highlights your body's best attributes and is not very tight-fitting. It should allow you to move with ease and should not be skin-tight, otherwise you'll be better off wearing your cycling gear.
Choose the right fabric
Don't confuse weight with quality, as lighter fabrics usually cost you more. But, you should go for cycling T shirts that are made of cotton, such as the Pima cotton or Egyptian cotton. These fabrics are made of durable fibers that look thinner and feel lighter when worn.
You can also opt for cotton blends and a mix of stretch fibers to maintain the shape of the T-shirt. On the other hand, choosing cotton-polyester blends is also a good decision, as this type of fabric tends to crease less.
Below are other fabric choices used for bike T-shirts:
- Bamboo - This type of cotton is breathable and slightly costly, but it is incredibly soft.
- Rayon - This man-made fiber feels smooth, but may easily wrinkle.
- Combed cotton - This type of cotton fabric is soft, smooth, and strong. It is brushed until fine, so the fibers are straightened and short strands are removed.
- Merino - If you are looking for a fabric that has natural antibacterial properties, is breathable, is hypoallergenic, and wicks moisture too, then this is your best bet.
- Pima - This type of fabric resists pilling, stretching, and fading. The more often you wear it, the more it will get softer.
- Organic cotton - When a cotton plant is grown using minimal pesticides, fertilizers, or fungicides, then it can be called organic cotton. Take note though that this is typically pricier than treated cotton.
- Polyester - While this fabric is lightweight and quickly dries, it is not really breathable. But it is not prone to shrinking or wrinkling and can retain its shape well.
Choose the right style
If you strive hard, you can wear your bicycle T shirts for fancy occasions and those days when you want to make a statement.
While cycling T shirts help you express your ultimate love for the sport, there's more to them than meets the eye.
Depending on the occasion, you can wear your shirt anyway you like. But to add more pzazz to your overall look, you can tuck it into high-waisted jeans. Your cycling T-shirt from Mellow Johnny’s will look fab, especially if it is paired with a suit, layered under a top, or matched with different colors. Take your style to the next level by pairing it with leather pants and faux fur coat as well.
With Mellow Johnny’s wide selection of comfy cycling shirts, you can play around with your style to achieve the look you desire.
Choose the right color
Mellow Johnny's bicycle T shirts come in various shades of black, blue, red, gray, and other fun colors, including the classic white.
Whatever color you choose, make sure it complements your skin tone, enhances your body shape, and fits well with most wardrobe combos. You can wear funky shades as long as they don't clash with your skin tone.
