Fashion Friday – A Dress Shirt with Reflectors? Bikers Rejoice!

Fashion Friday

Hi, Happy Friday, and welcome to Fashion Friday here on Today I wanted to talk about something that many of my buddies who bike to work will appreciate – a dress shirt with reflectors built in. Sounds like the future? It’s 2013 baby, we’re living in the future!

Bike Shirt Reflector

As you can see the dress shirt shown above does have actual reflectors built-into the shirt, but they’re only there when you need them. You can still don this shirt at the office and look good while you’re doing it:

Reflector Shirt Normal

See, looks like a totally normal shirt. This nifty idea has come out of Betabrand, one of my favorite fashion companies, as you can tell, they’re not afraid to think a bit differently.

If you bike to work this might just be the shirt you’ve been looking for, either way, it’s a great idea in my book, now they just need to get more colors!

    I am all for bikes as I have ridden all of my life. Although, bikes have no business on our roads. Having lived in and around Malibu and PCH for many years I have countless stories of bicyclists being hit and causing accidents or both. The idea that a reflector is any safer for the biker is a complete joke. Is a reflector going to reduce the damage? Is it safe to be riding a bike on an automobile road at night with a reflector? Living in California I can only tell you all of the horrific traffic situations the bicyclist have put as all in. The bicyclists are legal but rarely ride within the laws themselves… .. This post is based on many years of watching bikers seriously injure themselves and others. Would you want your children riding their bike on the street?

    I live in Chicago and refuse to ride a bike, the number of accidents I have seen are horrific and in broad daylight. With that said there is a market for this product, Europe I would lean towards Amsterdam as the French would most definitely not find this fashionable.

    The best thing about riding to work in your dress shirt is stinking up the place all day. Groovy bruh

    Haha, definitely not the response I was expecting, but I’m all about hearing from everyone. As I’ve always said, comment and let your voice be heard.

    I have to agree that riding a bike in a city like Chicago or NYC is definitely dangerous. Still there are many cities around the world (like Berkeley where I grew up) where biking is the norm for many people.

    In cities like Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, and New York City there are trains that can get the job done. In places like Berkeley, Portland, and Seattle bikes can really make a difference.

    And…if you’re going to bike to work, why not wear a dress shirt with reflectors built in? 🙂
