When American Honda Motor Co., Inc., launched in the U.S. in a small Los Angeles storefront in 1959, Honda established its innovative foundation through fuel-efficient motorcycles. Building upon that success, Honda brought the N600 automobile to the U.S. in 1970, followed by the popular 1973 Civic and established a loyal consumer fan base that soon wanted to display their loyalty and love for the brand. To meet this demand, Honda began to sell its own clothing line of shirts, jackets and accessories.

"Honda is excited to celebrate its heritage by recreating styles and accessories from the past," said Steve Center, vice president of American Honda's national marketing operations. "We hope that fans of Honda and vintage clothing will celebrate with us through the Honda Heritage Clothing Collection. American Honda was founded in Los Angeles in 1959, and the fact that these pieces are being designed and produced by partners in Los Angeles is a perfect fit for these historic pieces."

The initial items to be offered include a selection of three tee shirt designs that will feature the heritage-inspired logo from Honda's 1959 storefront and logo, a graphic featured on the 1974 Honda Civic sales brochure and a page from a 1973 Civic hatchback catalog. These tee shirts will be priced at approximately $40 each. Future Honda Heritage Clothing Collection items may include cafe racer leather jackets, nylon racing jackets, windbreakers, vests and casual wear.

To recreate the clothing, Honda is working with the creative consulting agency, Hubris Factory and its founder, Jon Alain Guzik. Design and production of the apparel will be handled by Los Angeles-based Crate Clothing, and its founder Chad Hilton is re-imagining the clothing using classic Honda logos and insignias.
