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.
