Regular fit in Black

With an unmistakable family resemblance to the VW Beetle (designed by Ferdinand senior) the Porsche 356 was developed by his son Ferdinand ‘Ferry’ Porsche and designer Erwin Komenda.

The very first 356 Porsche production car was introduced on June 8th, 1948 initially based in Gmünd, Austria. Production of the first fifty 356’s was in Austria however the company relocated to Zuffenhausen in Germany in 1950. Production continued at the same German factory from 1950 through to April 1965 (until the model was replaced by the 911/912). • 100% cotton – fine gauge, extra soft Belcoro® yarn • Great to wear – with features like taped neckline for extra comfort • Beautifully finished in chalk white screen print with twin needle stitching detail (165gm/m2) • Highly durable, great shape retention and machine washable at 40° • Small ‘Legends’ logo below neckline on rear 7.5cm Slim fit in Charcoal.

Featuring a mid 1950s VW Beetle with the caption ‘Gute fahrt’ good journey (in German). With the VW emissions debacle in the news we thought we’d show a bit of solidarity (and inject a bit of fun) with the introduction of our new t-shirt.

The plain facts:

In the early 1950s our petrol beetle (featured) had the odd backfire mainly due to poor quality fuel – as can be seen in our illustration!. In the early 1930s Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany wanted a cheap, simple car that could be mass-produced and capable of travelling at

sustained speeds on the new autobahn network in Germany. He contracted motor engineer Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 with the project of design and building what later became the iconic Beetle Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalise the design. The result was a rear-engined, 2 door, 5 seater car so familiar to us all A total number of 21,529,464 Beetles (all variants) were produced in various countries around the world and still holds the record of the longest-running and most produced car ever made.

Styled in appreciation of VW advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach who produced some iconic adverts in the late 1950s and early 60s

Featuring 1960s press ad-style illustration of the original Triumph Bonneville T120 Launched in 1959 to commemorate Texan racer Johnny Allen and his team setting the 1956 world motorcycle land speed record with a spectacular average speed of 214.17 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The T120 continued to be built until 1973. And some rather more colourful, esoteric little snippets for the real enthusiast… • In the 1969 Isle of Man TT, Malcolm Uphill averaged 100 mph around the Mountain Course on a production 750cc Triumph Bonneville (a first for production bikes) • Film stars massively boosted its image and appeal, but because it offered a reliable, cost-effective means of transport at a time before car ownership was widely affordable.

Fleece lined sweatshirt featuring Lawrence of Arabia on his Brough Superior SS100 • T.E. Lawrence CB, DSO (aka Lawrence of Arabia) owned eight Brough Superiors during his lifetime • The 1000cc Brough Superior SS100 was legitimately advertised – and widely regarded – as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of motorcycles in the 1930s • All Brough Superior SS100s were hand built and came with a guarantee that they were capable of 100mph. And some rather more colourful, esoteric little snippets for the real enthusiast … George Brough was originally involved in the ‘Brough’ family business. Following a disagreement about the direction of the business, he left and set up as ‘Brough Superior’ to produce his ‘superior’ product. It was Lawrence’s death at the age of 46, from head injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident, which led to the initial introduction of crash helmets for motorcyclists. This came about when Hugh Cairns, the neurosurgeon who treated Lawrence after the accident (in 1935) recommended that they be mandatory for WWII army dispatch riders. When the order for a regulation for all motorcyclists to wear helmets was debated in the House of Commons thirty years later, in April 1973, many MPs regarded it as a gross infringement of personal liberty. Nonetheless, it came into force in June of that year. Lawrence through his WW1 role in the then Ottoman Empire) is much better known for his role in WW1 and his great writings than for his contribution to motorcycle safety! His ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’ is said to rank amongst the best books ever written in the English language.

Featuring Lawence of Arabia on his beloved Brough Superior SS100.

• It was manufactured by BMC (the British Motor Corporation) between 1959 and 1967. • Big Healey, big engine – 6 cylinder 2,912cc.

• The Austin Healey 3000 replaced the Austin Healey 100-100-6 series and succeded by the MG MGC.

• A total of just under 43,000 Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 Sports Convertibles rolled off the line at BMC’s Abingdon works – production ceased in 1967...to make way for the MGC!

The Austin-Healey ‘brand’ was born of a 20-year (1952-1972) agreement between BMC’s Leonard Lord and one Donald Healey. At the time BMC needed Donald Healey’s sports car design and engineering experience to exploit valuable export opportunities, particularly the USA.

The body panels for the Healey 3000 were actually manufactured at the rival Jensen Motor works in nearby West Bromwich. Donald Healey eventually left BMC (then British Leyland) in 1968 and later joined Jensen to became their chairman in 1972.
