GENERAL NOTES ON FIT

for swrve bottoms, please note that our waist sizes are true to size. most other companies offer vanity sizing, but with us, a 32 means the waist circumference of the garment is 32".
if you have trousers of which you like the fit, measure the waist and that is the swrve size! to measure the waist, lay them flat and make sure the front and back of the waistband lay evenly across each other, then measure from side to side (fold to fold on the inside), multiply by 2 (there are 2 layers of fabric) and voilà, you’ve got your measurement.

for swrve tops, please note our fit is a slimmer European fit similar to American Apparel's fit

a waxed cotton jacket with wool interior tailored specifically for cycling is a twist on this traditional English garment.

THE FABRIC
wax cotton is the original water + wind repellant fabric first used by British seamen to keep dry in the harshest North Sea conditions, wax cotton is a simple idea that works beautifully: impregnate cotton fabric with a wax dressing and not only will it bead water right off and protect you from the wind, but it is also breathable to keep you comfortable even while riding your hardest.

in addition, we line our wax jackets with 100% wool in the chest and upper back to help regulate your temperature. wool is amazing in that it regulates temperature because it's such a great insulator. that means that when it is cold out, it keeps you warm, and even when it's warm out, it keeps you cool. neat, right? wool also wicks sweat away and prevents stink by naturally limiting bacterial growth (those sheep have really figured things out!).

THE FIT
stylish slim fit allows room for layering

THE FINAL PRODUCT
our wax riding jacket designed specifically with riding a bicycle in mind, this jacket combines the original technical fabric with stylish, functional design.

MADE IN ENGLAND

shipping cost is determined by the package weight and destination.

for domestic (US) customers USPS Priority is usually the fastest, least expensive option. to get an accurate shipping cost, please add the items to your cart and enter your mailing address at check out, the system will give you an estimate for shipping with various USPS and UPS options.

for international customers we suggest using DHL as it tends to be the best deal. It will arrive at your doorstep, regardless of where you are in the world, within 5 business days, and you get to track it as it makes its way to you. USPS Priority and First Class Mail may be a bit less expensive, but they have a higher tendency to lose packages. Please note that we are NOT responsible for lost packages! UPS rates tend to be rather exorbitant and you may be faced with a custom brokerage fee NOT included in the shipping rate.

international customers: please note that you may be charged additional customs duty fees at delivery NOT included in the shipping rate. these fees vary widely from country to country and there is nothing we can do to prevent them.

attention Canadian customers! our system will offer you UPS as a shipping option that may seem attractive, but we suggest NOT using UPS for orders going to Canada as they sometimes present you with a separate and additional customs clearance bill (on top of the customs duty) for $50 or more. eek!
