Honestly, I’m wary anytime a company steps outside their wheelhouse to expand their lineup beyond what got them where they are. With Search And State, however, I’m not worried. All of their clothing to this point have been meticulously thought out and executed. I see no reason for the Hooded Riding Sweatshirt ($195USD) to be any different.
Full details on Search And State’s first entry in their sportswear lineup are below in the press release.
FULL PRESS RELEASE:
Search and State is excited to announce the release of their first piece of their inaugural, made in New York, sportswear collection.
The Hooded Riding Sweatshirt is designed to be the perfect blend of versatility blending technical fit and features with modern sportswear design. The garment is equally at home riding, training, or on the streets of New York City. Cut from a super-luxe and ulta-durable Japanese French Terry and featuring internal routing for electronics, dual locking Riri zippers that access a full size front pouch-pocket, and multi-paneling for an ergonomic fit. Like all Search and State originals, the Hooded Riding Sweatshirt was made in Midtown Manhattan’s famed Garment District.
Search and State designer and founder, Daniel Golden, on the Hooded Riding Sweatshirt. “The intent of this garment was to expand our reach in terms of what cycling gear can be. This is a true cross-over piece that has a ton of function but can be worn without screaming ‘I’m a cyclist’. We ride in it, travel in it, and sleep in it.”

“Whoever you are and wherever you ride, we have a piece for you that will not only perform, but also make you look and feel better than anything else you’ve worn before.”
