Hello and welcome to Alex's Blog. Its an exciting week at J&S Accessories HQ as our 30th - yes you read that correctly - our 30th store is NOW OPEN! Just click here: J&S Accessories Ltd Wolverhampton for more details. As you can see below it has its own car park and is packed full of clothing and accessories already. Open 7 days a week.
Also this week I thought I would highlight a trend in clothing and accessories that keeps coming back in. Retro clothing. The difference between all this kit and the clothing of the past is that these offer ultra-modern protection and fabric technology for added durability in the event of a crash and the original designs that this new clothing nods to...well......didn't. So you get the best of both worlds! I thought I would just show you a few select items to showcase this retro trend.
First up the BKS Tornado Waterproof Boots - these are a commando style boot with the added advantage of a waterproof membrane, lace up fastening and ultra-durable non-slip soles.
BKS Cruiser Waterproof Knuckle Gloves are a cruiser styled glove with protection at the knuckles and a waterproof membrane with a comfort lining.
Another glove: BKS Jack 0615 Gloves. A perforated shorter style glove in either brown or black with added protection at the palm, hidden protection at the knuckles and adjustable Velcro strap.

The Bell Custom 500 RSD Helmet Check It open face motorcycle helmet is a best seller with us - the retro styling is combined with a checked design and supreme Bell craftmanship.
The Caberg Ghost Helmet Iron is an exclusive helmet to us here at J&S Accessories Ltd. A flip front helmet with "distressed" paint work exclusive to us, this has an aggressive yet classic styling. Obviously a flip front helmet is a modern twist on a classic design.
The Frank Thomas FT36SV Retro Matt White Black motorcycle helmet is a full face helmet in classic racer styling with the classic stripe design, What isn't vintage or retro about this helmet is the inner sun visor, full safety features and removable and washable interior.
BKS BKS009 London Vintage Jacket Brown a traditional style leather jacket with classic double line design but with CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows and removable sleeveless thermal body warmer for use in all seasons.

Another big fashion trend in motorcycle clothing (and non-motorcycle) are wax cotton jackets. The BKS Hawker Wax Cotton Jacket Black is also a jacket that would not look out of place on the street but looks great on a bike! This is a three-quarter length belted jacket with CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows and removable thermal liner so can be used all seasons.
