N.Bidlake is a company based in the San Luis Obispo area of California. They design clothes for the active lifestyle. This means materials that are wrinkle-free and low maintenance. My first hands-on experience with N.Bidlake has been with the All-rounder trouser. When they arrived, I was surprised at how much they looked like proper dress pants. Despite the formal look, they are designed to be used for biking. I love being able to ride in the trousers, and then wear them with a blazer for a night out on the town. They definitely can do both as they are made from a wrinkle-free blend of wool and recycled polyester. The material will repel water, oil and dirt, yet with a really nice natural feel. The cut is generous, allowing for complete freedom of movement while retaining a tailored look. These trousers are a nice showing from this new company, and I look forward to seeing more of their products in the future.
