Book Review: The Bikeriders

Book Review: The Bikeriders

By Petrolicious Productions / 18 Sep 2014

Using vignettes, The Bikeriders provides glimpses into a romantic, violent world where the era's common social conventions were replaced by codes no less strictly enforced.

There are literally no motorcycle jackets as iconic as a Belstaff. And it is with good reason: they are both functionally superior, combining road armor with weather protection, and classically stylish. Their rugged tailoring, durability, and lack of pretense made them the preferred jacket of icons like Mr. Steve McQueen and Mr. T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

We've been big fans of Pawel's work for a long time and the video presented the perfect opportunity for us to sit down with him and find out more about him. He began as a photo assistant a while back and since then has shot over two-hundred cars a year (frequently over three hundred) for the last ten years.

Belstaff and Aston Martin are a Sublime Pairing

By Petrolicious Productions / 29 Aug 2014

We can't imagine a more appropriate match for classic British motoring than Belstaff's signature hand-waxed leather jacket, itself derived from Belstaff's storied involvement with motorcycling, and their jeans sewn from soft Japanese denim. In fact, the same philosophy behind Aston Martin's hand-built manufacturing techniques, are behind Belstaff's approach to making timeless clothing.
