Milltag "Wiggins Casino" Cycling Top
Of all the cycling clobber I own, this still holds number one position of most favourite item.
It was a one off run of 30 tops by cycling clothing designer Milltag in celebration of Bradley Wiggins achievements in the 2009 Tour de France.
Inspired by all things Mod, Northern Soul (of which I'm a big fan) and cycling, it's really distinctive and if you look at the other bits of detail here, there's a lot going on with it.
The orange stripe contrasts nicely with my Sat-zoomer single speed bike, so it was nice to pull it on today and get out on the road.
Sadly, they're sold out now. Amusingly, when Wiggins was shown the design, his response was "F-ing love it." This statement itself has inspired Milltag to make a T-shirt with this on. So, I've got the look, now just need the legs!
