Hello and welcome to Alex's blog. Firstly some of the more eagle-eyed readers may have seen about a new J&S Accessories Ltd store opening soon on Facebook. I can confirm we have a new store (our 30th!) opening in Wolverhampton soon. In the meantime here is a sneaky peak of the new store:
As you can see this is quite a big site in Wolverhampton and we will post more details closer to opening day.....watch this space.
Now on to the topic of today's blog..... Summer motorcycle clothing! I realise it may not feel particularly summery today but there have been some lovely sunny spells recently and there are more to come (so I hear......) so I thought I'd give you a bit of a guide on summer clothing.
First up: Boots.
The Alpinestars Faster 2 WP boots are a shorter style boot, ideal for summer as not cumbersome, but still protective. These are also waterproof making them ideal for a British summer!
For those of you who prefer more substantial boots even in summer we have the BKS Tornado WP boots. Again, these are waterproof and being a shorter boot are an ideal summer boot.
Finally we have the RST Stunt Pro 1632 short motorcycle boots these are a best seller for us and for good reason. These are highly comfy and constructed from premium leather. They also transfer from the bike to casual wear very easily.
It doesn't take a genius to work out why the BKS Namib Mesh motorcycle gloves are great for summer riding. The clue is in the name - the mesh panels provide welcome ventilation in hot weather and the short cuff styling is a real favourite for our customers.
The Frank Thomas Fresh gloves do just as they suggest - they keep you feeling fresh. The mesh panels mean you're well ventilated and they are lightweight yet protective.
Available in two different colours, the Alpinestar Booster gloves are constructed from leather and goatskin with perforated areas for maximum cooling. These offer superior protection throughout.

The Bell Custom 500 Check It open face helmet is a high quality helmet - ideal for summer with the wind on your face. This also features a retro styling and an ultra-lightweight construction.
The Caberg ghost helmet is also a great summer helmet. This is a highly versatile flip-front hemet, available in three colours. Two of these colours (Iron and Rusty) are excusive to J&S Accessories Ltd.

The HJC FG70 open-face helmet comes in 5 colours but I want to concentrate on the brand new Vintage Flat Brown colourway. This features a retro colourway, cool lining and drop down inner sun visor. Ideal for summer.
The Oxford SP-J2 textile denim jeans are always a winner in the summer. With hidden protection but a casual styling these come in different leg lengths too.

The Red Route 009 Ride-Out jeans are denim jeans with Kevlar reinforcement in vulnerable areas plus CE approved armour at the knees. These are a best seller, especially in summer, as they keep you cool whilst also keeping you protected.

The Alpinestars AST Air textile motorcycle jacket is a lightweight jacket with mesh panelling and CE approved armour. A great summer jacket.

The Frank Thomas Tornado jacket black/white is a three quarter length jacket for those who prefer these to a short jacket which is lightweight with CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows and a waterproof membrane.

Not to be left out we also have one for the ladies - the Frank Thomas Comet textile jacket black/ pink. This is a 3/4 length style jacket but is extremely lightweight with a removable thermal liner making this suitable for all seasons...especially as this is also waterproof.
