Get to Know: Bike Tricks

It’s Bigfoot on a bike doing tricks—who wouldn’t want to know more?

 

SITM: What other SITM style do you think you pair well with?

Bike Tricks: There are other Bigfoot and bike styles, but I’m more of a loaner. When we see each other, we just nod to say “hi”.

SITM: What’s your superpower?

Bike Tricks: I have really big feet that help me do bike tricks some others can’t. That’s pretty cool.

SITM: What’s your favorite part of being on the SITM team?

Bike Tricks: They really accept me for who I am—a hairy, apelike guy who just really enjoys doing bike tricks through giant evergreen trees.

SITM: What do you think about this sock & sandal trend?

Bike Tricks: I don’t like biking in sandals, they just get in the way. Bare feet help have a better grip.

SITM: When you’re on a foot, where would you like to go?

Bike Tricks: I don’t like to go out much, so if we do, make sure it’s quick and blurry.

A Year in Socks

January has been just ugly. We are so ready for a new month, a month that brings us closer to the shiny, sunny days of June. Shoot, even April looks good from this point. More days of light, at least.

Truth be told, we often think of the calendar year in terms of socks. For example, next month is when we open up our hearts for Cupid’s arrow (we have lots of heart styles, fyi!). Then there is Mustache March, April Showers, May Flowers… and so forth. It all makes perfect sense, don’t you think? (Well, it would if your lives revolved around socks, as ours do!) At any rate, this is it: A Year in Socks…

January - A time for cozy leg warmers
February - When Cupid arrives, of course
March - For Mustache March
April - As in yucky April showers and cute umbrellas
May - When buds are in bloom
June - When bikes just about outnumber cars in PDX
July - When all I want to eat is sushi, everyday
August - When your toes are always exposed
September - When the Schoolgirl returns
October - When Day of the Dead looms ahead
November - When deer hunting season begins
December - When we enjoy candy canes in all flavors!

Men’s Style

Our men’s styles are rockin the scene right now. In fact, it’s across the board. We’ve been watching the trend alerts and fun, colorful men’s socks have really gotten their share of love, as of late.  Which is a relief. Because time and time again, our guy friends are spotted wearing boring, bland white socks that quite honestly makes us squirm in our boots. So if you are one such man – or you know one such man – take a gander at these four easy looks that suit all the young and hip types out there… and the older, classic types, too.

The Portlander: blazer, dark denim, bike socks, sneaks, and a cup of coffee
The Prep: Oxford, plaid tie, fitted vest, skinny trousers, Crow socks, leather ankle boots
The Dude: white tee, v-neck sweater, Lacoste jacket, striped socks, and twill cap
The Urbanite: fitted blazer, pink stripe tie, lightning bolt socks, and simple sneakers
