I only found out recently that the New York Knicks are named after knickerbockers - you know, those dapper knee length trousers. Not only do I love saying the word 'knickerbockers' - I've been apprenticing for a fashion designer. B. Spoke Tailor,  who specializes in tailored wool knickers for bicyclists. She makes fabulously dapper and functional knickers so you may ride in style - the anti-spandex gear. And each pair is cut and sewn right here in Oakland, California.

She also makes custom knickers to get you that perfect fit, as well as accessories including recycled wool arm warmers, top tube covers for your bike.

So what are you waiting for? Grab some knickers and get on yer bike!!

Very Obedient Felines

For all of you kitty lovers out there, you just *might* enjoy pics from a cat fashion show held at the Algonquin Hotel in New York City. This show was part of a birthday party for Matilda, the Algonquin Hotel's official cat.

Raggedy Ann! Though she looks like she might cut someone in a second.
My personal favorite...no words needed!      

The angry king. Doesn't quite seem to enjoy the attention.

Happy Friday everyone! :)
