Vulpine do a lot of non-cycling looking clothing, even down to a Harrngton jacket. A lot of new Endura stuff is good too and is "proper" sizing, i have plain merino tops and primaloft jacket from them.

Endura Urban
Mavic gravel stuff
Shimano range has some good shirts and trousers but mainly via European retailers only - the Transit shirt is great
Morvelo Overland
Madison range has a few bits, Giro and Crikey, how much also. Even Brompton now (it's made by Endura)

There will be more before long, e-bike / gravel growth means there's more interest in not looking like a mamil/FKW/Mr Enduro etc

I find it's quite possible to ride a bike in non cycling specific clothing :wink:

Whatever you do, do not commit the crime that is a plaid shirt and Lycra shorts. :o

Columbia seem to be pretty good.
they do a large and tall range, which is just a bit too big, but their normal stuff is a bit too small.
I need lettuce. :lol:

I have/had a few Vulpine bits, quite nice stuff

Have a look on the Always Riding website, they have some nice things that might suit

Vulpine currently on the sportpursuit website

Morvelo stuff seems pretty good too. Also use general outdoorsy clothes for that sort of purpose

I have a mock plaid shirt that is actually just a print on a normal cycle top that was a little joke to myself, but I don't think anyone gets it and they think I'm just a #gravelwanker... or more likely just a Taylor. <----- Swear filter... I'll leave it as that though as you all know what I must have typed. :wink:

i use icebreaker merino wool t shirts to ride in then supplement with a rab xxl size hooded soft shell type jacket mainly thin layered tops, the bearbones gillet works quite good and mine is the biggest size so i think it will fit you as we are similar size maybe your a tad bigger lol,ice breaker have a fit finder were you type in your height and weight.columbia outdry in xxl is quite a big size for waterproof gear,endura single track xxl shorts fit me to and have a stretchy fit when you stop for a beer and pies.matt
