From American Chopper to Sons of Anarchy, there’s an iconic look associated with bikers and their clubs. Take a look at the following list and see if you’ve managed to hit all the essentials.
The single most important part of biker apparel is your “cut.” If you’re looking to join an established club, you’ll need to earn your cut through their rules, but if you’re simply a fan of the lifestyle and looking to emulate it, any tough leather vest will do.
Thick, study boots are a must-have for anyone kicking off from the road. A quality pair can last for years, and you can adorn them with spikes or spurs as you please.

A thick leather belt is another essential of the biker look. You need a reason to show off your large, awesome buckles, after all. Skulls and crossbones are common; American flags are timeless but occasionally run the risk of being cliche. Regardless of design, anything under two inches should be left on the shelf.
The use of a bandana goes well beyond style when you’re a biker on the move. For one, it will keep your hair out of your eyes while riding; it can also be used as a makeshift bandage if things get rough in a bar. Never go anywhere without a spare bandana tied to your arm.
These are just a few ways to turn heads even without your Harley. Visit OldBikerGuy.com to learn more about dressing yourself with the right attitude for the road.
