Thor! My new sweater from Gasoline Cowboys

Today, I received my new vintage style Motorcycle sweater from Gasoline Cowboys. I absolutely LOVE it and haven't taken it off since it arrived. I think I will wear it to work tomorrow since it is supposed to be cold again.

I know I previously posted a page from the Gasoline Cowboys' website, the history of Dehen, the manufacturers of these sweaters. I'm not sure if it was clear from that post that these sweaters are made on the SAME EXACT MACHINES as the original motorcycle sweaters, manufactured from the 1920s to the early 1950s. Gasoline Cowboys even found the elderly man that used to cut the patterns, and he sketched the pattern from memory,  so they would have the same fit as the originals. These sweaters are the real deal, and to own one is almost as good as owning a dead stock motorcycle sweater.

The nice folks over at Gasoline Cowboys wants to give the people out here in Blogland a little discount if they end up ordering one of their fantastic sweaters. Just enter 5BUCKS in the coupon redemption space during check out.

I chose the Thor sweater with the striped sleeves. Thor was a company that manufactured components, parts and kits for the earliest American Motorcycles. You can read about them here (Thor History).

Not a good photo of me, but great photo of the sweater!


I will be wearing this sweater during my trip to the UK and will have cards to hand out to vendors over there. If there are any clothing companies interested in having these sweaters made with their own logo design on them, it can be done! Remember, the UK pound is still worth more than the US dollar so these sweaters are very reasonable to purchase if you are in the UK!
