Classic motorsport images from the golden era of racing, when men were men and everything was simultaneously much more and far less tacky than it is now.
Warning: this is a style blog and should not be taken as serious commentary on anything other than interesting retro fashions.
Huschke von Hanstein, Umberto Maglioli, Edgar Barth and Jo Bonnier at the 1964 Targa Florio.
Spring-Summer 1964 hat lookbook. Jo Bonnier’s bucket number looks suspiciously 1990s again.
Junior taking Junebug for a ride. Nice shorts there, Dale…
Dale Jr has his own distinctive, signature look, just like his father did.
Late ‘90s surfer/skater baggy pants have got to come back in some time soon.
More Dale Sr.
The younger Dale had quite an attractive face, I don’t know what that ‘tache was making up for.
Do also note the wide-leg racing overalls.
Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon (1993)
Watching old NASCAR recently, I was inspired to return to Grand Prix Fashions.
Dale Sr and Jeffy do Movember before it was even a thing. Bonus points for Jeffy’s rainbow overalls, which make him look like the “racecar driver” member of the Village People.
