Clothing for bikers. Simply saying the phrase conjures up a picture of a leather-clad biker cruising along an empty highway while wearing black clothing. When we step back from that, we can see that motorcycle clothing are now available to anybody and everyone; it is no more a dress code that is reserved only for those who live on the fringe of the law.
If I’m being honest, I have to say that I don’t think they ever were. In the beginning, motorcycle clothes were meant to be protective gear or at least a facsimile of it. Nowadays, however, wearing biker gear is more of a fashion statement than anything else.
Whether you are interested in biker clothes for reasons of fashion or because you are a biker or rider, we hope that you will find something on our website that will pique your interest and that you will find intriguing.
As a rider (I rarely refer to myself as a biker; I let others decide whether the name fits me or not) and a fan of biker wear in general, I’ll be looking at clothes that I wear both on and off my bike in this blog. I do not yet know exactly what directions this blog will take, but I will be looking at clothes that I wear both on and off my bike. So I assume that means I’ll be addressing both the safety/protection side of things as well as the fashion side of things when it comes to this topic.
Not only will I be interested in the clothing, but also in other pillars of the culture, such as jewelry, rings, and sunglasses associated with the motorcycle subculture. This is something that will definitely catch my attention. In the end, they are an integral part of the culture in the same way that the garments themselves are.
