Frankie & Henry Bike Mechanic Uniforms

To commemorate tomorrow’s Tour de France, this week Frankie and Henry roll out their bicycles and showcase how to pull off practical bike mechanic uniforms.

You don’t have to wear your patterns how they tell you! Frankie and Henry go against the norm to show you it’s OK to pattern clash.💥😄 Patterned clothes and accessories add personality into any outfit and while it’s usually the rule of thumb to avoid wearing too many different patterns at the same time, it’s not a binding rule. If done right clashing fabrics of spots & stripes and other patterns can instantly uplift your uniform and give it a fashionable edge. Just remember to keep to similar colour tones for a coordinated look. Frankie models our striped Riviera Tee with Pin Spot Neck Scarf, Max Check Shirt and Todd Chino Pants in Black.
