Time to Ton-Up!

1. ton-up
To break the 100 miles per hour barrier, preferably on a motorcycle.

"I was doing ton on the way over here"

Even though the sun is starting to bear down on the city streets don't put away that biker jacket just yet. It may seem like the heavy leathers and tall boots have fallen out of favor due to the steamy summer months, but you just can't ignore the classic cool of the Rocker.

The look, proving both necessary and practical, consists of: leather jacket, tall boots or creepers, denim, caps and scarfs. I know a lot of that sounds silly with the temperature rising but you can still pull off the look with the basics.

Remember, its not what you wear but how you wear it. I think what appeals about the cafe racer or ton-up boy look is in its simplicity. White tee with dark denim cuffed up above the boots. Toss on a black jean or leather jacket when you roll out at night, or even toss on a light white or cream scarf to add a bit of flair. Take for example a gent that rolls in to my work every so often; if you wanna go for the more Brit approach: Davida helmet, Halcyon goggles, Wilson's leather jacket, flat cap, cotton button up, slim tie, houndstooth vest and slate Levis.
