Motorcyclists have given us much more than the iconic black leather jacket.
From gentleman’s leisure activity to rebel trademark, a history of the motorcycle trends has had profoundly huge effects on our culture and fashion. From Tweed suites to biker jackets, from safety goggles to aviators some things just remain timeless
We’ve all seen the stereotypical biker, 6 ft tall, tats on both arms, biceps the size of Europe, leather waistcoat, boots, complete with leather biker wallets with chains
Most motorcycle riders wear leather – lots of leather. Boots, chaps, vests, gloves, chain wallets, and leather jackets. The reason behind all this leather is not for looks, and it's not to appear threatening. It's all about protection
there is a saying in motorcycle culture that there are two types of riders: Those who have crashed, and those who haven't crashed yet. The Moto style trend essentially lies in the between the threshold of safety and functionality. Even after decades, biker fashion is still considered quintessentially cool. A timeless look that came to represent individualism –and this irresistible spirit lives on in the work of some of today’s top designers Influenced by the freedom and resilience of the riders and the sleek design of motorcycles themselves
Goggles or eye protection is often the law, Think what happens if a bug hits you in the eye at 65 mph . Today you see most riders sporting stylish aviators or helmets with eye protection.
From rivets, grommets and studs, all typical of biker gear, even black lipstick and bandanas are everyday looks for some .
Biker fashion is really coming into its own especially for bikers that want functional protective gear; but gear that looks just as good on the bike as it does off it
There is a reason for everything the everyday biker wears. Sure, it looks cool and there is some really beautiful riding gear available but safety is always number one.
