News Flash: Two New Cleverhood Styles Hit the Streets

Rhode Island’s Cleverhood Rolls Out New Corduroy Capes
Valentine’s Lovers Make Out with US Made Cape for Livable Cities

PROVIDENCE (Feb. 1, 2013) – Cleverhood, the Rhode Island Company with men's and women's outerwear for livable cities, today rolled out two new high-performance capes for active city people. Inspired by the slow bike movement and urban sustainability efforts, the Cleverhood is a US-made garment of traditional style with modern features.

The two new ‘hoods are made of water-resistant corduroy with standard Cleverhood craftsmanship. The fantastic Mr. Fox Point is brown with black, sturdy Uretek zippers. The Coffee Milk is lighter, the shade of RI’s popular drink, with khaki green zippers. Both models have reflective 3M™ piping trim, magnetic armhole closures and elastic thumb loops - the perfect outerwear for bike commuters.


“Livable cities have open spaces, bike lanes and people who tend to get out and engage in things around them,” said Susan Mocarski founder of Cleverhood.  “Cleverhood is a versatile garment designed to provide style and performance for people who aren’t weather-permitting.”

Cleverhood uses U.S. garment workers and high-quality features like rugged zippers, reflective materials and elastics, many from nearby suppliers. Cleverhood is sold online at and at a number of select independent fashion and bike shops around the world. 

Valentine’s Day Deal

Starting today, in special recognition of passion and/or romance, Cleverhood is giving its customers a 15% discount until Valentine’s Day. Red ribbons and free US shipping included in that sweet deal. Be sure to use our Rhode Island homage code: “LoveRI”.

Based in Providence, Cleverhood LLC, is a small business that produces a special brand of men's and women's outerwear that reflects an affirmation of American ingenuity, local places and solid reliability.
