Since i started this blog i’ve posted 1,209 photo’s, 99% being a visual retrospective of pro-cycling and racing bikes from doing research into the great sport.
For a little over 4 years i have been working alongside two Japanese gentlemen, helping them source British made garments for their shop in Tokyo. A little over 5 months ago, we put our heads together to create a brand that is essentially ‘Made in England’ for a Japanese market.
There has been very little stock coming through my sources that fit the spring/summer period. I have honestly been up to my eyeballs in outwear and other clothing for the colder times of the year. So, initially MAMNICK was started to make clothing for this lack of Spring/Summer stock. But since then, we have pushed on to design a full range of clothing from summer shirts and shorts, through to gilets and outwear.
The reason i am telling you this is because, from now on Believe-Belong will act as the blog for the MAMNICK project and although tumblr doesn’t lend itself to ‘networking’ directly, i trust that, if my followers share my taste for all things bike related, then possibly, you might well share my taste in clothing.
MAMNICK is one of of the largest/toughest climbs in Derbyshire, UK. It was important for me to create a brand that has meaning to me, a passionate cyclist. Even though MAMNICK is not an exclusive brand of cycling clothing, I’m sure there will be some cycling ‘functionally’ appearing through our products.
Stay tuned for more info and I hope you can join us on this journey.
