Imagine biking in Chicago in mid-February (or maybe, you don’t have to imagine). This being the worst month of winter, every daring cyclist you pass is bundled up in snow-proof apparel of muted colors. In fact, aside from the occasional hint of personality offered by a sticker-covered helmet, February can be a rather isolating time to travel on Chicago roads.
The TSH black net jersey aims to shake up the routine of wintry, slush-covered commuting. At first glance, the jersey may appear to be just as muted as traditional winter cycling gear. And yet, we’ve used classic color combinations and a wavy-geometric pattern to create a jersey that is vibrant and dynamic. Inspired by Op Art’s playful examination of figure/ground relationships (think Bridget Riley or Omar Rayo), the Black Net Jersey aims to alter your physical perceptions, to make you question what is void and what is solid, and to draw your eye to the details. Employing color and contrast, the jersey highlights the subjectivity of perception - ultimately exposing its wearer (and those near her) to a multiplicity of ways of viewing the world: is that a white line on a black background or is it a black square on a white background?
While not everyone has snowy winter commutes, the Black Net Jersey inspires all to abandon monotony for new modes of seeing the world. In reaching vistas that are truly your own, you’ll be supported not only by Op Art design, but by technical details like elastic grippers on the slim-fit jersey’s sleeves and back panel that keep the fit snug and comfortable. We’ve also added breathable, sleek black inlays to the jersey’s super lightweight, premium grade fabric in order to let you crest that next ridge or round that next turn without feeling bogged down by all the sweat your efforts are undoubtedly working up. Whether battling sleet, snow or misty el nino rain, the black net jersey will enliven the quotidian while still supporting the needs of everyday cycling.
