    It's funny, when I was at the Triumph shop the other day getting my TTSE looked over, I found myself drawn to a couple Triumph T-shirts that I thought were pretty awesome.  Then I had to remind myself that I give no end of grief to HD riders who insist on gearing up in heaps of HD branded clothing, and squashed the urge to buy.

    I'm curious as to what the general consensus is around here about branded clothing.

    I feel the motorcycle branded stuff is usually good quality and over priced.

    You can get great deals at if you don't mind last years models.  That does not bother me.

    I like Firstgear brand because they have sizes in tall and the quality is pretty good.

    They have other brands also.

    Just my 2 cents.
    good luck.

    I chuckle at the Harley head to toe riders.  Do not give me grief as I owned a Harley, but never saw the need to dress like a 13 year old girl more interested in the tag on the clothes rather than how it looked.  That being said, I own a Harley t-shirt, a gift from my son in law.

    I have bought a few Triumph clearance t-shirts from Iron Pony for less than $9.00 each.  I also have bought a used Triumph textile jacket off of ebay cheap because I liked the jacket, not because it had a small T on the back.  It is one thing to wear a shirt that says Triumph, or Harley, and quite another to have everything on your body, including underwear have a Harley label.

    That being said, everyone is free to dress the way they wish.

    I always liked the HD folks who were dressed head to toe even down to the fingerless gloves and then walked out the door and got in their car  :745: I have gear from Tourmaster and Olympia because they have good quality and they offer tall sizes. I do have a very nice Triumph jacket that my wife bought for me. I don't know who Triumph uses for their gear, but the jacket I have is very good quality. To each their own, it's what keeps life interesting.

    I have Kawasaki, Yamaha, triumph, Indian, Moto Guzzi, Vulcan, and even Harley branded clothing and gear.  I have dealer T-shirts from Honda and many other brands that were giveaways.

    I have no problem wearing a Kawasaki T-shirt with my Moto Guzzi Jacket while riding my Harley, or a Harley wicking shirt with my Triumph Jacket while riding my Yamaha.  Even my Kawasaki Mesh jacket while riding the Triumph.

    My badge lanyard for work is an aprilla, or BMW, or Kawasaki green.

    If I were to put decals on the back window of my truck, it would be one from every manufacturer I could get.

    I love motorcycles, and motorcycling and I don't care who knows it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it wasn't made in the same factory ( somewhere is East Asia ? ),
    with slightly different designs / stitching, and different badges sewn or embroidered on.

    I wear a Triumph mesh jacket in the summer and a Navigator jacket in the cooler months, with the matching gloves when necessary.  Outside of those items, I pretty much wear what works best for me, though I haven't worn my BMW jacket with my TTSE - not yet, anyway.  Not much of a tee-shirt guy - those go to my wife and kids.  Though not Triumph-branded, my work badge lanyard is covered in British flags (and M&M's - what can I say, my kids got it for me at the M&M store in London  :002:)
