We're very happy to announce the arrival of two new brands here at Bespoke: Mission Workshop and Acre.
Both brands are something of a departure for us, but since so many of us here use their products on a daily basis we felt it made perfect sense.
We all ride every day. Maybe some training before work, some commuting, sometimes transferring stock between stores by bike. Having the right kit for the job is of the utmost importance. If your gear doesn't perform as it should, life can get that little bit more difficult.
Mission Workshop are a bag and apparel brand based in San Francisco who pride themselves on making the best products that they possibly can. A Mission Workshop bag is a bag for life. Unparalleled materials and construction, clean and considered design, lifetime warranty. If you are reading this, chances are that you transport some of your stuff by bike. Whether it's a sturdy everyday carry solution you want or something for the rigours of travel off the beaten path, Mission Workshop's bag line will have something to take care of it.
The Mission Workshop apparel line consists of basic daily essential that have classic styling, superior materials and construction. It's not bike specific, it's just gear that works incredibly well in all weathers and all scenarios. Tough, water repellant shorts and trousers with just enough stretch, innovative softshell garments, snug merino and incredibly sophisticated shell jackets all have that timeless look. We've found it's the kind of stuff you don't ever want to take off.
Acre is the more outdoor specific, MTB-luxe line that's grown out of Mission Workshop. Every piece of clothing, every bag, is carefully designed and rigorously tested in the wild to bring you the final product.
The Acre Trail System is the culmination of a life spent in the wild. It's about couch surfing our way across five continents, car camping at the base of the ski lift in January, or a week long bivy trip in the snow covered backcountry of Colorado. Our idea of "the wild" is a way of life that may seem familiar to some. If you're one of these people, you know that the idea of finding a washer or dryer in any of those places is the equivalent of finding Shangri-La.
It's these experiences that drive us to create gear that enables maximum enjoyment by minimizing the negative effects that come along with exposure to the elements. We know we're a small piece of your big picture, but we'll do what we can to get you farther, faster and back. Stay wild.
Check out our Mission Workshop range here, and Acre here, and come see us in store. We'll be more than happy to tell you how great this stuff is!
