MOTORCYCLE ACCESSORIES FOR RIDERS BY RIDERS
For the longest time, we looked for motorcycle jackets and accessories designed for everyday riding that also looked good off the bike. Also, not "vintage or retro" but classic with a modern yet timeless feel and fit. We wanted something that just didn't exist. Eventually, we decided that we would have to make them from the ground up, just like the bikes we ride. The results are uncompromising, self-validated motorcycle jackets and accessories, you see them, you must have them, end of story. Or actually, just the beginning.
THE PAGNOL STORY AND INSPIRATION
Pagnol initially was the creation of Paulo Rosas, owner of design and marketing studio www.SpeedMachinesDesign.com . Later Pagnol and the first M1 jacket resulted from a crazy series of intersecting interests with James Yang, owner of www.hammerbeast.com . Although the M1 jacket is geared towards the everyday rider, the founders of Pagnol happened to meet at a track day at Willow Springs International Race Way. They began talking and realized they shared a common vision.
They both wanted to create product with a tasteful, modern yet timeless feel and with a slim fit.
Between them at Pagnol, they have design experience in MotoGP, AMA and CEV Repsol, moto apparel and gear design, fashion design, industry media, custom motorcycles and retail. This has proven to be a very complimentary collaboration.
After a few iterations, they arrived at the M1 jacket, the culmination of several calculated design decisions. Later the M2 was created as a more modern/architectural version of the M1. Expect more well thought out product to come out year by year.
