HYPEBEAST TV kicks off its inaugural episode of Coffee ‘N Clothes with the charming BMX pro, Nigel Sylvester. The New York native picks up where he left off in HYPEBEAST MAGAZINE Issue 15, discussing his upbringing and career over coffee at Cha Cha Matcha on Broome Street in Manhattan. Nigel talks about pushing the boundaries of his sport by breaking down racial stereotypes and being multidimensional in telling his story.
We then headed to A.P.C.‘s brick-and-mortar on Bond Street to purchase a new pair of jeans to bike in. As he’s searching for a tapered silhouette made with stretch denim — because flexibility is paramount — Nigel explains why he would describe his style as “comfortable, functional and edgy,” as well as how clothing can disarm prejudices.
