Brompton x Oliver Spencer
“When you think of menswear in London, you think of Oliver Spencer. When the opportunity came up to work with him, we jumped at the chance.” Kenny Kelly, Soft Goods Product Manager at Brompton.
Oliver Spencer, Director & co-founder of London menswear brand Oliver Spencer, has been riding a Brompton for 20 years. Both based in London, the Oliver Spencer and Brompton brands share many of the same values including meticulous attention to detail in their design, sustainability and an affinity for urban travel in style.
When Oli came to Brompton saying he wanted to design a blazer, he was looking to create something that he needed himself. Conceived with commuters in mind, the Brompton Blazer by Oliver Spencer takes inspiration from the Brompton Bicycle’s unique 3-way fold to create a versatile yet stylish blazer that can be folded away into the integrated musette bag. When the weather begins to warm up, the Blazer can also be worn using the integral bag straps.
Made from a textured, Italian water-resistant performance cloth, the fabric retains its shape and avoids creasing which makes it ideal for folding away – just like the Brompton itself.
Oliver Spencer “wanted to create something that became an automatic choice for a cyclist in the morning when they were leaving the house… it’s versatile because of the fabric; you can screw it up and throw it in your bag and know that when you pull it out later in the day it’s crease-free and good to go.”
“Being seen on the roads is important but there are also a lot of people out there who want to still look good whilst doing that, I believe this jacket helps to solve that wardrobe issue for the everyday cyclist.”
The Brompton Blazer by Oliver Spencer is at our Brompton Junction store in Covent Garden, London.
