Design & Sustainability on

From the Bike Lane to the Boardroom – Commuter Style

— By: The Team at Nau

We were excited to see Gear Patrol feature the Daytrippen Pant as “Best of Outdoor Retailer” today.

Outdoor Retailer is a biannual trade show for the outdoor industry that we attend two times a year to present upcoming season products. Getting some traction from media and buyers alike, we designed the Daytrippen to be a refined version of the classic chino, organic cotton for breathability with the right amount of stretch in a tapered fit. It features details like bound seams and pockets crafted with kickbacks to keep contents secure and will come in black or sable at just $88. But since you can’t get it until next March, we figured we’d showcase a few of our available styles that adhere to the same standards of sustainability and versatility, providing 360-degree support for your ride to the office and whatever you’ve got on the calendar the moment you get there. The following styles are currently available on our website and at retailers nationwide:

Men’s Day Use Pant

Direct ascendant to the Daytrippen Pant, we designed the Day Use Chino to be a commuter-turned-work pant. A clean-cut homage to the classic utilitarian chino, the Day Use is extremely durable and comfortable any way you choose to wear it: biking, working in the shop or just out for the day, and available in two staple colors.

Men’s Stretch Motil 5Pkt Short

Designed to travel well and move with ease, the Stretch Motil Pant is made of textured organic cotton and recycled polyester blend fabric that’s comfortable, breathable and quick-drying, providing weather resistance and a wide range of motion. The hem rolls up to reveal reflective tape, and it adds a right thigh zip pocket and left hidden pocket to a five-pocket style. The Five-pocket Short offers the same fabric, and a right sideseam zip pocket with a bike-friendly 11-inch inseam, in a work-ready slim profile for warmer days inside and out. If you don’t mind riding in a shorter length, the Motil Drifter Short takes the inseam down (or up) to 8 inches, and we also offer the Motil Cargo Short for a more utilitarian aesthetic.

Men’s Wander Collection

The Wander Polo and Tee are performance styles, fabricated in a cotton / Tencel® Sun jersey knit with natural permanent UV protection. The polo is a three-button design, with striking woven polyester button chest pocket that finishes off its refined style. The tee is minimal in design, but not in range. Shoulder patch details add visual texture and shed light rain when the sun dips behind a cloud. Both styles are breathable, have natural UV protection and enough stretch to make them highly versatile through the summer months.

Men’s and Women’s: Twisted Collection

Our Twisted collection provides a selection of rideable, lightweight wovens suitable that blend beauty with function. Designed in an Organic Cotton/Tencel® Sun blend, they provide you with 50 UPF protection while under the sun, and we think they’re suitable for most office environments and après work events. For women, we offer the Twisted Pant, with an elastic waist, front flap pocket, and rollable cuffs; the Twisted Tunic, which offers a side vent and fold-over sleeve cuff; and the belted Short Sleeve Dress, long enough to bike in. We offer for men the Twisted Shirt, which offers the look and feel of a soft chambray on top of its UPF rating and durable weave.

Men’s and Women’s: The Slight Collection

For rainy rides, our Slight Collection offers a super-strong and incredibly light performance windshirt. Made from recycled polyester and coated with our PFC-free Durable Water Repellant (all of our DWR styles are PFC-free), the Slight collection is one of our best-selling, offered for men in the shirt and hooded jacket iterations, and for women in the high-necked shirt, as well as the cinch-belted, hooded Anorak. And every Slight piece packs into itself if the sun comes out before your trek home.

Women’s Astir Series

While biking in a dress isn’t everyone’s thing, there’s no reason the ladies can’t pedal in every morning outfitted in the Astir series, a collection of day-to-night dresses, tops and bottoms made of a soft and comfortable jersey knit blend of Organic Cotton and Tencel® Sun, the latter which provides you with sun protection at a 50 UPF rating. Offered in our greatest range of colors and silhouettes, there’s a lot to choose from to populate your wardrobe with modern, streamlined yet functional design.

We ride to work in these and other styles that are currently available.
