The Club.

“Smokin’ Joe” Petrali took hairpin turns on dirt tracks and rode motorcycles up hills, sans helmet and with perfectly coiffed hair. He always looked as cool as a cucumber (and a bit like Bogart).

He lost half his lip in a horrifying crash that left him so damaged, death was a foregone conclusion. So, a young doctor was allowed to experiment on him and sew the lip back on. Long story short, Petrali was back on the track less than a year later.

In photographs, you’ll find him wearing a club sweater like this. For living fast, looking good, and combating the elements at high speeds.

1930s Racing Club Sweater (No. 7239). 100% superfine merino pullover, quarter-zip sweater that’s unexpectedly dashing with the collar turned down and expectedly statement-making with it zipped up (your neck is thoroughly protected). Ribbed cuffs and hem. Double-needle-stitched internal elbow patches for spills. Racing stripes at sleeves. Imported.
