History of the Racing Sweater:
The Racing Sweater has its origin in the 20s and was widely popular up to the late 50s. Wide collars, high cuffs that went up to the waist and a thumb hole on the sleeves were features of the first sweaters. Equipped with a zipper from the chest which could close all the way up to the neck, these warming pullovers were best for motorcycle races. That is why these pullovers got popular as "Racing Sweaters". Already during the interwar period, the AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) hosted the so called "Gypsy Runs". These "Gypsy Runs" were different types of competitions, freestyle-disciplines or mountain races. The Racing Sweater, which was available in many different colors at that time, served as a platform, so that clubs, sponsors or companies were able to present themselves with their own logos on the sweaters - The birth of the Racing Club Sweater! This made Racing Sweaters very popular amongst many racing clubs in the postwar period. To clearly identify the membership each member wore a sweater with his name on the front and the club logo on the back.
