Old Empire Motorcycles

2014 sees us proudly collaborate with Old Empire Motorcycles. Together through a joint passion of motorcycles and a shared lifeblood of quality, detail and craftsmanship, we have collectively forged a concise 5 piece collection.

The collection sees 4 graphic jersey t shirts using a colour palette of classic P&Co and a new take on our leather card holder. We felt that our black and white trademark colours fit perfectly with the motorcycle roots of this collection. The colour palette takes inspiration from the black and white reality of riding a bike; the ‘you and the road’ mentality. The designs take inspiration from industrial graphics found on classic British motorcycles that are then fused with our love for vintage typography and grungy illustration styles. The collection also features a slimmed down variation on our classic leather card holder. Made from natural veg tan leather the card holder is designed to age and patina over time, resulting in a truly unique product.

The outcome is a relaxed and wearable concise collection that emulates our joint ethos of custom built, hand crafted goods created with skill.

OEM Monogram

This design is the simplest from the collection. Simple hand drawn typography is embraced in this design giving it a clean cut, classic British feel. Monograms were used as recognized logomarks for companies heavily throughout the industrial sector. This seemed a fitting way to create something iconic and memorable. Using our classic left chest print with a large back print this tee is set to be a sure favourite.


This tee is the Old Empire Motorcycle Club tee. Featuring the OEM ‘Skull Rider’ this tee has a real cult feel to it. Using a colour palette of white and light grey this tee is made to be worn, it’s made to get dirty. It also features Old Empire’s tagline ‘British Made With Pride’.


This is the real statement tee in this collection featuring a large front print of the ‘Skull Rider’. This design was our way of showing that once you ride a bike it consumes you and becomes part of your whole lifestyle. This design also features the OEM lion from the OEM branding - a focal part of their British heritage.


Designed to be a real statement tee for the true motorcycle lovers out there. The Old Empire tee features a unique co branded illustration of one of OEM’s custom built motorcycles, Merlin. The Merlin is the motorcycle that features in the Desires & Liars short film‘ Gasoline Dream’.
