I forgot to mention another cool booth set up at the bike jumble last weekend.
Brooklyn’s own thecyclery.etsy.com is silk screening t-shirts based on vintage cycling posters from a by gone era. Pete, the designer, has put a few twists of his own using traditional printing like a Warhol soup can.
I’m partial to the Valkyrie looking: the Liberator! In men and woman styles.
Here’s a little more about their designer Pete:
I am a small, independent T-shirt company operating out of historic Red Hook, Brooklyn. Having built up my first label, Live Poultry Industrial Clothing, into a distinctive line of designs that celebrate the industrial landmarks and icons of Brooklyn and the five boroughs, I decided to create a second line of t-shirts at an affordable price that exemplifies the fun of cycling.
Hence, The Cyclery was born. Hope you like it!
Cool shirts Pete. I dig them.
