If you can spend a little more then B'twin gear which is sold online by Decathlon is much better than Aldi.

If you want something seriously good then try Torm, Shutt, or Rapha.

Be a trend-setter like me. Heavy tweed trousers, a Fair Isle Cardigan (with hi-vis yellow wool in the pattern of course), a sturdy flat cap and puffing away on your pipe, leaving a St.Bruno trail of smoke in your wake. Don't forget the trousers clips !

Remember, all the rest of them are total Lycra clad knobs, YOU are Mr Sensible! wink

Sports Direct has some good Muddy Fox bike clothing too, a nice compromise if you don't want to be full on in lycra.
