In a month or 2 here, it'll be cool enough for me to put on my overpants. Great piece of gear to have. They've got zipper all the way up the sides, so I can get in and out of them with my work pants on.

As for shirts, I don't buy any "business casual" shirts that require ironing, so they don't wrinkle regardless of what jacket or coat I wear over them.

I just wear them to work. All summer too.

I do not switch shoes either. I just keep my boots looking decent.

business casual....get a mesh jacket and just wear what you work in.
that's what i do been doing it over a year. Ever seen the guys riding their crotch rockets to work in business casual (sometimes with a tie even) My dad and I used to see them all the time riding to work when I was little, now i've turned into one myself.


edit: i wear polo boots to work (i know not the BEST riding boots but meh, slacks or denim jeans, long sleeve "polo" type button up shirt, riding jacket and helmet, gloves etc.)

I bought a suit that you step into; I wear it over my work clothes. It's easy to get on and off, has armor and breathes well.
I bought the Mojave--http://store.teizms.com/one-piece-suits. You just have to carry your shoes or leave them at work.

I work in a business casual environment and I just wear them while I ride to work. I put all my stuff in a backpack. Wrinkling is minimal on slacks especially if I wear a polo shirt. Mesh jacket helps in cool weather but it can still get pretty hot in the summer.

I commute on my bike everyday... almost.

Mesh jacket and overpants. Keep extra pair of shoes at the office, so I can wear my boots.

Roll up your clothes and keep you work shoes at the office. I have a cube with a locking drawer that my shoes live in. I change in the bathroom. On days when I don't ride in I wear tennis shoes and change the shoes when I get to the office.

I use a Chrome back pack from when I was a bike messenger on days when it will be really wet. For the unexpected rain days I keep a few plastic bags at the office and the ups/fedex tyvek bags also work in a pinch. Check your building mail room they usually keep the bags in the ups/fedex drop box.

I keep an extra set of clothes at the office, and or roll them up and put in a back pack. Seems to work pretty good. Keeping an extra pair of shoes at the office helps not compact the clothes
