There are a few staples in motorcycle fashion that never go out of style; a black leather jacket, a pair of Ray Bans, and some dark blue jeans. With vintage bikes and modern classics increasing in popularity, there seems a lack of similarly styled apparel and gear that reflects the bikes we choose. Moto gear seems to be catching up with collections like Dainese’s 36060 gear and we’re seeing some cool retro helmets like the Bell Bullitt and Biltwell’s Gringo.

We instantly fell in love and knew we needed a jersey of our own! After reaching out to Hometown Jersey’s owner, Jill Smith, we learned that we could get our own custom Bullitt jerseys made. Hometown Jersey has two style options; the Original Hometown Jersey Raglan Sleeve and the Set In Sleeve. We opted for the ‘raglan style’ and couldn’t be happier.
Currently, The Bullitt is in the process of a site redesign and will be adding a new e-store where Bullitt jerseys will be available. In the meantime, feel free to email pat(@)thebullitt.com to get one directly.
