Made It Here — a Style Selection by Borough’s Graham McLoughlin
Style Selection #27 | Compiled by Graham McLoughlin.
Riding my bike dictates little what I wear on the bicycle. As I get older, I care less and less about fashion and more about timeless quality and simple style that’s practical for all seasons. Often the items are manufactured or made here in the UK, a reflection of my interest in local manufacturing and the stories and people behind each product.
