Holiday Gift Guide – Laekhouse

If you followed our coverage of this season’s grand tours, you might have tried your hand at winning one of several super cool (yes, I say things like “super cool”) t-shirts from Laekhouse. Designed and screened (by hand) in a Brooklyn apartment, Laekhouse shirts merge iconic cycling images with hipster-endorsed American Apparel t-shirts. Last year I recommended you pick-up Squad from the Icon Series. This year, my two favorites are The Climber and 1986. I’ve also got my eye on one of the new line of Super Tour hats–especially Yellow.

So go have a visit–the site’s front page is worth a trip all by itself–and if you order, tell them we sent you.

Pros: Terrific designs. American Apparel shirts are simply the best for fit and feel.

Peeves: These are hand-screened on an as-ordered basis–so order soon for the Holidays. AA stuff tends to shrink a bit more than I like.


About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.
