Edition 041. The Mechanic Shirt.

If you missed out on our Yosemite shirt, this is your chance - the chamois’ more rugger brother (it comes in black, navy and steel). 

The brilliance of the Mechanic’s Shirt lies in the fabric - the outside is durable and tough and the other is a soft brushed cotton.

The result is the warmth and permanence of a lined jacket with a trimmer cut and less bulk. We finished it off with our spankin’ new metal utility button as well.

This shirt is here to pay respectful homage to all our motorhead buddies who continue to back up their beautiful ole Honda’s, BMW’s and Triumph’s in front of the shop every day.

We’d also like to re-introduce you to our friend, Mr. Graham French. A truly impressive guy with many talents, be them taking amazing photographs or mopeding 13,000 miles.

We spent Sunday afternoon with him as he worked on a few bikes at his garage and talked us through his most notable adventure. 

What is it you ask? Well Graham rode from San Francisco, California all the way to Tierra del Fuego (13,000 miles) on a moped. He took a bunch of pictures and made a really great book too.

He was also nice enough to get on the other side of the camera and let us snap a few photos of him for the release of the Mechanic’s Shirt.

You can also learn more about Graham and his travels from our post yesterday.
