For many, the Route 66 road that travels through the west of the United States is the essence of freedom. It’s beautiful, wide and gives the perfect snapshot of the country from Chicago to Los Angeles. Hopping on a Harley with your significant other and taking a cruise through the desert is the Route 66 dream of many.
The dream of cruising through the desert under the stars is the exact feeling the Australian shop Route 66 seeks to offer. Since 1983, the Melbourne-based shop has specialized in American vintage clothing and western styles, including the popular classic jeans and Levis. Over time, the styles of the shop have transformed and broadened into retro, rockabilly and pin up styles with a hint of western thrown in. Biker jackets and vests are two popular items found in the Route 66 shop. Forget popular brands such as Dickies or Lucky 13, you won’t be finding these mainstream labels here.
Rockabilly dresses, biker leather and gothic style lace are all popular components in the Route 66 style. It’s not just clothing, either. Accessories and outfit embellishments can also be found to complete the perfect outfit for any girl or guy. Patches, Ray Ban sunglasses, and classic car styles are all part of Route 66. You can even find pomade for the classic “greaser” hair look of the 1960’s.
One of the best parts of the Route 66 shop is that prices remain competitive and reasonable while still providing high quality items. Sale and clearance items are regularly being updated and cycled through so high demand items can be purchased throughout the year at lower costs, even when they are no longer in as high of demand.
Whether you’re into the sassy biker chic rockabilly styles of the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s or just love mixing lace and leather into your outfit, Route 66 makes it easy to incorporate these styles into your everyday outfits. Classic American styles include jeans and leather, and with these retro items making their way into your wardrobe, you won’t be able to wait to hop on a Harley or into a ’67 Mustang convertible to make your way from Chicago to LA.
