European Touches ~ Vol. 9 ~ Launch of Vulpine Apparel
Category: Journal

UK-based cycling apparel company „Vulpine“ launches today, March 14th – about two weeks ago

I sat down with Nick, the founder and owner of Vulpine and asked him about the first products,

the difficulties of starting a business and his passion for cycling.

After the release of the first teaser shots of the Vulpine garments on a few weeks ago I

dared to ask Nick if he wanted to meet me as I’d be in London for a couple of days at

the end of February. I didn’t think he’d be interested in talking to me, after all is

still in the earliest stages and not very well know, but Nick didn’t care and said, „size doesn‘t matter“. ; )

So we ended up meeting at „Look Mum No Hands“, the social center of the cycling community

in London as Nick called it. It is kind of a hybrid between a bikeshop with two full-time mechanics

and a cafe/restaurant. I got there a little early, but it was great to sit there with a

coffee and just watch the people as it was packed with all kinds of folks.

The place was buzzing around lunchtime.

Nick is the kind of guy who seems to have done anything from running a nightclub in Manchester

to working in the film industry. Needless to say it was fascinating to listen to him. If you want to

find out more, head over to and read the full interview.
