Our story

Coureur du Monde makes polo shirts for explorers, urbanites and everyone else intrigued by the pioneering spirit of yesterday’s cycling heroes. Our name comes from the Belgian nickname for cyclist - coureur - blended with a feeling of global joy and free-floating horizondrift.

We got inspired by cycling's Golden Age - from late fifties through the seventies - and its riders' explorer style and spirit.

Coureur du Monde was born out of a love for cycling. As Belgians, cycling has always been a part of our DNA. We are bike-mad. Wind and weatherproof fans. We got inspired by cycling’s Golden Age - from late fifties through the seventies - and its riders’ explorer style and spirit. With their laidback uniforms and loose attitudes, they simply beat the coolest guys. Unintentionally, just by being their hard-working selves. This fascination became the breeding ground for Coureur du Monde.

With front and back pockets as Coureur’s unique signature.

Coureur shirts aren’t just any polo shirts. Our garments dance around the boundaries of then and now. On the one hand, Coureur shirts are rooted in cycling’s heroic culture. Bred in bravery and timeless nonchalance. With front and back pockets as Coureur’s unique signature. But while earlier decades serve as the jumping off point for our designs, Coureur du Monde is made for contemporary tastes. We live today. We love today. We want to mix the best of both eras, in our shirts and everything that surrounds them. From old-school to new-school.
