British panniers are normally extremely boring. You know, you always see them in mainstream bike shops like Evans. Of course the Dutch have got it right with snazzy ones.However, many of us aren’t near any places that stock them and I have never seen any that ‘are jewellified’ (ok that’s my word:-)
My Bikehut panniers are very good and they have all the pockets I need, but they are gray. And looks dull and boring. I think they can still look smart for work and leisure if you ‘customise it’.
I have been regularly going to the haberdashery shop and there is some good stuff round. I have now embroidered a ‘string of waterproof shiny gold diamond shaped metal beads’ on my pannier so it looks ‘like it comes from Harrods’.
It will be interesting to see if I get any comments.
