Paul Smith 531: Remarkable Clothing to Cycle in

Born out of Paul’s long-standing love of cycling, the collection balances his unparalleled attention to detail with a provenance as one of the world’s most innovative fashion designers. Named after the iconic Reynolds bike tubing historically ridden by many Tour de France champions, Paul Smith 531 refers to the ratio of manganese (5), molybdenum (3) and carbon (1) in the steel alloy used in the once trailblazing bicycle frames.

Employing pioneering developments in technical fabrications, the collection is designed to meet cyclists’ demands for breathable, water-resistant and insulating garments that have a versatility to see them right both on and off the pedals.

Featuring lightweight weatherproof jackets, merino wool sweaters and moisture controlling leggings in high performance Schoeller fabrics, details include stowage pockets, adjustable side panels and reflective strips. Ultimately Paul Smith 531 offers remarkable clothing that’s also made to cycle in. 

Standout pieces include: 

531 Orange Weatherproof Cycling Jacket with Temperature Control - Men’s weatherproof four-season cycling jacket constructed from Swiss-made Schoeller ‘C-Change’ fabric, providing a stable body temperature and full weather protection on and off the bike. Paneled construction on the sleeves and body ensure an engineered fit when riding or walking, while 4-way stretch fabric offers uninhibited motion. Other features include a drop-down spray guard, reflective ‘531’ chest panel for added visibility, and adjustable armpit and rear yoke vents for increased airflow.

Designed to perform off the pedals as well as on, the jacket has a raised chest stowage pocket, discreet reflective detailing and vents that double as hand warmers when away from the bike. 

531 Dark Purple Windproof Paneled Cycling Gilet - Men's dark purple cycling gilet mixes breathable fabric, high-density mesh and windproof front panels crafted from high-performance Schoeller '3XDRY' fabric to create a versatile layer that performs on and off the bike. Designed as an insulating internal layer or an external high-vis piece, this garment embodies the adaptable on and off the bike performance of Paul Smith 531. High-cut, accommodating pockets allow you to carry your daily essentials without the need for an extra bag. Other features include a reflective chest panel with ‘531’ branding for added visibility.
