Hopefully if crankandpiston’s fashion tips are anything to go by, your respective wardrobes will already be straining at the hinges with Steven Shaver cufflinks, Lady Cans, Speed Jewellery and Race and Win watches. And let’s not forget Import Bible. Let’s be honest, a motoring enthusiast with an eye for heritage will have a pretty good idea what fellow devotees will want on a T-Shirt.
With their latest range – Series 6 – David Nguyen and the Import Bible team have really pushed the boat out, and we’re not just talking about the curvaceous talents of model Dannie Riel.
As the mercury rises ever-higher, the team have introduced a nine-strong range of automotive apparel to keep your mind in check while the rest of your body melts. And we’ve already spotted our favourites.
The ‘Dying Breed’, for example, is inspired by the very first BMW M3 (the E30), a lightweight hoonable monster that’s gradually gained a few belt notches over the years as comfort and luxury steadily took precedence.
‘Go Hard’ (calm down) is a tribute to Mitsubishi Evos 7 through 9, legends one and all on the rally stages, and also among the hidden gems crankandpiston recently stumbled across on its trip to Beirut.
And we’ll throw in a good word for the Toyota Supra-inspired ‘Heavy Foot, Heavy Fines’. With styling derived from its elder Celica brother, the Supra made a massive name for itself on Japan’s drift circuit and continues to be a heavyweight contender on dragstrips the world over.
During her time with Import Bible, Dannie also modelled some stickers….
…we’ll let your imagination conjure up those images.
