Cycling clothes 1953-style

Real cycling means everyday clothes, so I was pleased to see this item on display in the new Galleries of Modern London at the (free) Museum of London the other day.

According to the information panel, 'Irene Field bought this fashionable Alexon tweed suit in 1953 in Woolwich. She wore it on cycling expeditions and for walks'. Presumably along with her hi-viz headscarf.

Inspiration for anyone wanting to do an authentic Tweed Run next year...
