Life would be less fun without photography or bikes, and this shoot included both. These images are from an editorial shoot of menswear designer Vaughn Brown of Parker Dusseau for a Bicycling Magazine piece titled: “The Secret to no Sweat Commuter Style.”
Vaughn makes the best work shirts! They are comfortable, dressy, vented behind the shoulders, and use a fabric that is both stain resistant and water repellent. He adds extra details like rubber buttons for durability, and double pockets with a single flap. Never seen that before, but it’s trick. Some of these features are used in Parker Dusseau’s collaboration shirt with Bicycling Magazine. We covered Vaughn at several locations in San Francisco for this shoot, and he styled his shirts well at each spot.
