Sorry to bombard you with material posts today rather than beautiful imagery as you’re accustomed to… but wandering around the Kickstarter website I found this project. It’s called the ten year hoodie because it’s made to last a lifetime and they provide free mending for a decade. The creators touch on “planned obsolescence” in modern day manufacturing- something many of us motor heads loathe. New bikes and cars may have amazing advances in technology, but these advancements certainly don’t seem to be used to improve longevity. Same goes for our clothes. So why am I posting it here? If you have to ask, you clearly don’t work on your own motorcycles.
This is pretty much the perfect mechanic’s hoodie, as it’s super heavy duty, warm, has big pockets and hood, and has FREE REPAIRS. Anyway, the project doesn’t need your backing, it’s so good they’re well, well, well above their goal already. But I thought you guys might appreciate a heads up, so you can jump on the bandwagon before they go up in price after they’re first manufactured.
Alright folks, I need your help with something.
I want to know all about awesome motorcycle t-shirts from shops, blogs, clubs and teams from all over the world.
Please leave a comment on this page if anything comes to mind!
You mean these shirts? We actually have the black t-shirt version I was wearing, along with tank tops in black and white.
….I would love to let you know directly, but you signed ‘anonymous’. We have the shirts for sale at my work, MotoCorsa. You can order them right now for $15. Find our contact info on the website or get in touch with me and I’ll make sure we get you one. But this time, leave your contact info!
Bonjour! I actually got a pair of Icon Heartbreaker riding jeans with Kevlar reinforced knees a couple months ago and have worn them a lot (on and off the bike). I’ll be honest, I don’t think the photo they have does them justice. They’re boot cut stretchy jeans with thick knees, and they’re super flattering. Plus you could almost buy four pairs for the price of the Ugly Bro’s pants.
