While we applaud his choice of bike, he also really likes a $500 jacket when it comes to gear. We really don't know anybody who is in the market for a $500 cycling jacket, which is why we carry a lot of great jackets that are far under the half-a-thousand-dollar price point.

All of which will help prevent you from (as Sal puts it) "showing up at the office without looking and smelling like a sweat-soaked reindeer."
