Motorcycle Apparel News

Alpinestars and Young & Reckless have joined forces for a collaboration exploring the two brands’ core identities and their mutual passion for sports and lifestyle.

Young & Reckless founder and president, Chris “Drama” Pfaff, was always drawn to motocross as a kid.

Alpinestars has been a staple in motocross worldwide for nearly 50 years. Both Drama and Alpinestars enjoy unorthodox partnerships, thus creating a collaborative T-shirt series and contest.

Available exclusively at PacSun, the five T-shirt styles fuse both brands’ commitment to action sports and a common design aesthetic. The five styles are available now in participating PacSun locations.

Additionally, a limited edition, motocross-inspired long sleeve tee will be available in a special vending machine on Saturday, April 2nd, at just five PacSun stores. Limited to just 500 pieces (100 per store) the cobranded jersey will also be tied into an exclusive contest, awarding one lucky winner an all expenses paid trip to AMA Supercross in Las Vegas with Drama himself.

Drama will also be making an in-store appearance at the PacSun store located in his hometown of Canton, Ohio. Mr. Y&R will be on hand at the Belden Village Mall, Saturday, April 2nd to celebrate the release of the limited edition T-shirt.

In preparation for the Alpinestars X Young and Reckless collaboration, Drama took to the track for a little bit of self-exploration and introspection. He investigates his passion for motocross and why he is so committed to that passion.
