Total Outfit: PEPE JEANS

Total Outfit: PEPE JEANS

One of the things I absolutely *LOVE* to do here at Be Stylish is to take a complete outfit, reverse-engineer it, then tell you how to put it back together for yourself.

But classy suits and silk slim ties is not the only thing that’s stylish. A biker look can show just as much style as the most expensive suit IF you wear it in the right circumstances. Plus, you need to BE the kind of guy who would wear something like this.

Today I want to present to you a classic biker look. The black-grey t-shirt and jeans are everything you need. You don’t need much help here, just go for some simple denim.

Boots! if you’re really going for that biker look, the books will make the whole difference. Just imagine Dustin in wearing black leather shoes instead. he wouldn’t make that much of a fashion statement in that case.

Add to the boots a leather belt, a cool haircut and we’re done… or are we?

Remember: it’s all in the details.

Ducati Recruits Customizer Fred Krugger for a New Concept XDiavel

For the latest in its XDiavel line, Ducati has handed creative control to Fred Krugger, one of the motorbiking world’s best known customizers. The resulting bike is named the Ducati ‘Thiverval’ after a small racetrack on the outskirts of Paris, and was first shown to the world at the recent 2017 Bikers’ Classics Lifestyle Village. Krugger’s twist on the bike features a full exposed engine and hidden trellis frame to simplify the bike’s lines, while the XDiavel’s superstructures have been completely rebuilt from the original. The customizer’s aim was to create a power cruiser that would be imaginative while also keeping its ties to the XDaviel and Ducati’s DNA. This is the third time that Ducati has produced a concept bike based on the XDiavel, with Roland Sands putting his spin on the bike and the DraXter by Ducati’s design team.

Ducati has recently been put up for sale by Audi, with the German automobile company apparently seeking $1 billion USD for the luxury Italian motorcycle brand.

Ducati Unveils the Monster 1200 R

Celebrated Italian bike manufacturer Ducati took to IAA in Frankfurt this week to unveil the most powerful version of its most popular naked bike: an “R” version of the Monster 1200. Utilizing the 1198cc Testastretta DS R (the latest take on Ducati’s classic V-twin), the new bike offers increased power and speed over its predecessor — improving on the 1200 S’s specs with 117.7kW of power at 9,250 rpm while torque tops out at 131 Nm at 7,750 rpm — thanks largely to a two-into-one-into-two exhaust of 58 mm pipes. Other improvements over the S include the likes of a wet clutch with slipper functionality, an adjustable Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires — all of which have been borrowed from Ducati’s top-of-the-line 1299 Panigale.

BMW Apollo Streamliner by Mehmet Doruk Erdem

Turkey-based industrial designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem has developed a futuristic motorcycle concept for BMW. Dubbed the “Apollo Streamliner,” the bike is a unique fusion of heritage and cutting edge characteristics, with a particular emphasis on speed. The two-wheeler’s classically-styled brown saddle, exposed engine and rear suspension serves as a contrast to the aerodynamic sloping front section that completely covers the front wheel. Probably more fitted to breaking landspeed records than for daily use, check out the BMW Apollo Streamliner above and head over to designboom to get a better look.


"Art of the Italian Two Wheel" Vintage Motorcycle Exhibit in NYC

A collection of rare Italian motorcycles are going on display in New York City, courtesy of Stuart Parr. Parr is a designer, architect, collector and perhaps most well known as being the producer of Eminem’s 8 Mile, is now unveiling “Art of the Italian Two Wheel,” showcasing his own personal collection of motorcycles and street bikes. With an affinity for Italian builds hailing from the 1960s and 1970s, many of these motorcycles are considered top of its class and very rare. Renowned makers such as Ducati, MV Agusta, Laverda and Magni play a big role in the exhibit, unsurprisingly. But unlike normal collectors who treat their collections like gold, Parr actually rides all of his bikes in the streets of NYC. If you’re interested in vehicles and motorcycles, make sure to drop by the exhibition, open now.
