If you’ve been wondering what bike those devilishly handsome chaps in the Charles Tyrwhitt Spring/Summer 14 look book are riding, you’ve come to the right place. It’s our elegant & stylish city bike – the Roadster.
On a glorious late September’s day last year, we headed to Mayfair with one of our Roadster city bikes for a rather special rendezvous. Waiting for us there was the team of stylists, photographers and creatives from Charles Tyrwhitt - about to shoot their Spring/Summer 14 campaign in which the Roadster was set to star.
A Glimpse Behind the Scenes
The two sharply dressed and immaculately groomed CT Shirts models – Jislain and Guy – with the Roadster:
Behind the camera was photographer David Burton – whose work has appeared in Vogue Paris and Harpers Bazaar and who’s photographed the likes of Michael Sheen, Bernard-Henri Lévy and Laurence Graff.
The day wasn’t just spent gliding along Mayfair’s streets though, the shoot also included a visit to that epitome of class and style The Arts Club. While Jislain & Guy also had the chance to pilot a Pashley Guvnor (seen below next to our Roadster) and to lark around in a Jag E-Type. Not the worst way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

About the Roadster
Elegant, stylish and easy to ride, our Roadster is the perfect gent’s city bike.
Deigned to be ridden in comfort whilst wearing a suit, or a beautifully tailored shirt, each one is made-to-measure and built-to-order here in Great Britain. This means each bicycle is made to the highest standard with a razor sharp attention-to-detail.
At the heart of the Roadster is its exquisite steel frame – handmade in Coventry, England by a master frame builder using the traditional lugged technique. This gives the Roadster its timeless style but by using only the latest Reynolds’ steels creates a bicycle that’s also strong, robust and lightweight.
The Roadster featured in the shoot, is finished with a selection of the finest components available – leather goods from Brooks England, powerful LED dynamo lighting from Schmidt, high-performance Tange Seiki headset & bottom bracket, handmade Nitto bars, stem & seat post and bullet proof Continental tyres.
