You're a troublemaker, you don't want to be left out of a fight and you'd like to have been part of the real Hollister riots of 1947? Then your heart beats to the same beat as Marlon Brando's. He played Johnny Strabler, the rebellious leader of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in the movie "The Wild One", which served as the inspiration for this must-have: the rocker gang's BRMC logo jumps wildly out at you from the cool club sweater. Are you worthy to wear it?

50s racing sweater with authentic BRMC embroidery.

The racing sweater is densely knitted and particularly voluminous. Inspired by the classic racing club sweaters of the late 1940s and early 1950s, the neckline features a zipper that can be used to transform the collar into a roll neck. The cuffs on the sleeves are extra long and can be rolled up or worn almost like gloves - especially by using the opening provided for the thumb. The three narrow stripes on the sleeves are in a contrasting offwhite color. The back features intricate embroidery, which is perfectly complemented by the small embroidery on the front. Simply a cool sweater for real men - once you've worn it, you won't want to take it off...

History of the racing sweater:
Racing sweaters originated in the 1920s and were popular well into the 1950s. The first sweaters had wide collars, very high knitted cuffs up to the waist and a thumb stitch on the sleeves. The collar was closed with a zipper that ended at chest height so that the entire neck could be covered. This warm cut was particularly suitable for motorcycle races, which gave the racing sweaters their name. The AMA (American Motocyclist Association) was already organizing so-called "gipsy runs" in the interwar period. These were various competitions, freestyle disciplines or hill climbs. The racing sweaters, which were available in a wide range of colors at the time, served as a platform for clubs, sponsors or companies to present themselves with their logos on the sweaters. The birth of the Racing Club Sweater! Ultimately, racing sweaters became very popular with various clubs in the post-war period. To clearly identify their affiliation, each member had a sweater with their name on the front and the club logo on the back.
