Fashion Friday: Silicon Valley Geek is Chic

03 Aug

Pragmatic engineers value function over flash and efficiency over elegance. So it’s no surprise that the short-sleeved woven shirt, no-iron slacks and dressy sneakers are the engineer’s go-to items, on or off the bike. Not only would Grant Peterson approve, but the Mad Men-inspired fashion industry is now hot for Richard’s look.

Richard Masoner is the prolific writer behind the long-running Cyclelicious bicycle blog.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

        Yeah, I don’t know what happened to the link but I figured it out. I’ve read your blog before. I’ll have to add it to my reader.

        I love the expression on Richard’s face. Like a happy kid having fun on his bike, which I guess is pretty much what he is.
