Graham French & The Mechanic Shirt.

If riding 13,000 miles across South America on a moped doesn’t say rugged we don’t know what does.

We were fortunate enough to spend the afternoon with Graham French, a gifted man with many interests and talents including photography, and of course mopeding. 

Graham, whose full time job is running Glass Coat Photo Booth Co, spends time on the side repairing bikes. He has owned over 100 mopeds (with no more than 60 at one time, of course) and 5 motorbikes. Again, rugged right?

In 2006, with best wishes from his family, a map and an ipod, he set out for a five-month-long moped exhibition from San Francisco to Tierra del Fuego.

Graham’s book, Moped To South America, is filled with just a selection of the six-hundred medium format photos he took documenting this amazing journey. 

We loved spending time with someone who isn’t afraid to take advantage of such adventures and is able to capture all the unique beauty along the way. 

Tune in tomorrow for more photos of Graham as we introduce our newest edition to your Taylor Stitch collection … the Mechanic’s Shirt.
