Ditching fossil-fuel eating automobiles for earth-friendly bicycles seems like a no-brainer, but for the stylishly eco, puddle-splashed skinny jeans and garish biking jerseys just won’t do. The solution: the classy Dutch citybike by jorg&olif.

With features like chain and wheel splash guards, and a structure designed for an upright riding position, bikers may pedal to work clad in business attire — without the mars of wrinkles and mud spots. The bikes are made to last a lifetime and come equipped with one, three or eight speeds, so they’re in it for the long haul.
