I have always been a huge fan of all things fashion, and it’s pretty incredible how, just like many other things, it can be influential in the automotive world. I have gone back and fourth about posting fashion related topics, and I think it would be beneficial to the blog and learning more about what True Driving is all about.
This fall/winter season has really left me stuck on an addiction to all things tweed. The combination of patterns and and colors is really limitless. It gives such a warm look in the months where, well we like to be warm. Something that is equally impressive as tweed is herringbone and the way it is made. Just take a look at this video, and you can see the amount of effort that goes into making this pattern. Even if you know nothing about fashion you can just see how impressive a machine this is. Holy crap that pattern is beautiful.
There are many reason’s I love cafe racers. Besides the obvious love for raw, simple power on two wheels, there is a look to these motorcycle’s that are unmistakable. Many of you might not know, but I am hugely into fashion and these bike’s stem off from the fashion world in many ways. The style of the guys who made these motorcycle’s popular in the 60’s and 70’s, like Steve McQueen, is what made these so much more then just a motorcycle, for me, and many. To show you what I mean, I found a couple of pictures from a recent shoot in front of the famous Ace Cafe. As you can see this style of mens wear and motorcycle to together SO WELL. I can’t wait to build a couple of my own…
Many people don’t know how much I am into fashion. As addicted I am to cars/motorcycles, I am just as addicted to all things fashion. I absolutely love pictures like this. Where my two passions are mixed together to create a conglomerate of sex of wheels. Before I get too crazy, here is a picture of a lovely gixxer, and a dude riding with a full suit. I love the elbow pad and shirt color choice. I promise I won’t be posting too much of this type of stuff, unless you guys want to see it.
As a huge fan of fashion this picture speaks volumes. With a period correct Mini Cooper and a driver who has great fashion sense and classic sunglasses, it all just works. The 70’s picture style puts it all together. Like stanceworks said, this is class.
