Pret a Rouler

By  CJ Boom     16:23     
I don't know how it happened, Kristian H persuaded me I guess, but I ended up in an all tweed outfit and modelling in some hipster fashion show.
The Tweed outfit I wore, which included a silk scarf, plus 4's, shirt, flat cap, tweed waistcoat. the tweed wasn't Harris as @tarmacchaser pointed out but it did have reflective strands woven into it. pretty smart cycling tweed. But I look shit in the pictures, the boots make me look like I have some chunky thighs and no tan.
http://www.bicycleimages.com/ images are here  - search Pret and loads of stuff comes up

my other outfit was by Finesterre. Wore well, looked nice and made from British Merino Wool. Clever.

This girls properly worked it, not sure the outfit is that great for cycling. High fashion

And Kristian just looked like erm a Rapha man

  5. If a trademark has been infringed then it's only right that you go for the show's organisers BUT how do you think you come across by putting this on the blog of one of the models?

  6. Fair point made above by the chap with no name. Go to the event's website or something. I guess you didn't read my post properly. If you read it again you'll see I'm not the organiser. Bonjour
