I love this vintage cavalry look and wondered as I approached this man if he were an officer of some kind. No – he’s a bicycle courier. This man asked himself how they used to go about delivering mail, and here you have it. Definitely a cut above the standard spandex and baggy short attire of many couriers. Note the velvety leather boots, the crossed sword rifle pins on his lapel and the seatbelt latch on his shoulder strap, which makes taking his courier bag off and on much easier than the backpack style shoulder sling. This man is originally from Calgary Edmonton.
