Workwear, the road trip

“You don’t need much for a motorcycle road trip,” begins Long Live The Kings, a short film documenting a trip aboard old BMWs that seems to take place through both the Alps and the American southwest, simultaneously. There’s also a suspicious amount of wolves, bobcats, men with perfectly groomed hair and expensive denim, all combining to make this sort of a wet dream for the selvedge crowd.

    FYI that’s the Blitz Motorcycles crew (plus friend). Also interesting is that it was shot on 16mm film. I quite enjoyed it, despite the fact that I can’t afford Edwin denim…

      Definitely an enjoyable little film.

        Good article title.

      I actually had to look up Edwin denim. I don’t even pay that much for hookers.

          Hand clap for you kind sir. After I stop choking from laughing so hard of course.

          There is wisdom to this.

    their beards are very well maintained . anyway I think this look a million bucks nice to see something shot nicely on 16mm rather than just adding faux film effects in post production. it’s a great looking clip.

    Denim: for when you want clothing that’s heavy, cold, takes forever to dry, and does next to nothing in a crash. It looks lovely, though.

    Practically a genre …
    Watching and wondering about its production crew, how many times a scene gets repeated, what a lot of raw meat, etc.

    Wes Anderson meets French hipster moto culture. Even though it’s pretentious bs, I LOVE everything about this! Simply too good.

    Red lighning bolt tattoos down your back are cool.

    Despite not being a fan of the whole ‘ Hipster ‘ ethos ‘ ( actually I despise their pretense and excessive pastiche ) this is one heck of a film . Unlike 90% of what’s been passing for M/C short films lately : this one has that single most important ingredient any work can have

    Quality

    Practically a genre? I would say it’s a direct rip, or an homage (french hipster pronunciation) of Any Given Sunday, or especially Cycles South and other 16mm biker/surfer travelogue films of the 60′s/70′s. Thankfully, Cycles South has some naked hippie chicks to go with its shirtless bearded dudes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ndi0lXm-9HY
