We've been intending to do a story on Genuine Motorworks for a couple of years now, almost since the day it opened in Brooklyn. A stone's throw from the intensity that is the Williamsburg renaissance, just off Bedford Avenue in an old factory, Genuine Motorworks celebrates work clothes that are made in America.

Catering to hipsters and working people alike, Genuine Motorworks has sweaters, boots, belts, overalls, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, gloves, and motorcycle helmets. All of it is made by small quality manufacturers who remain in the United States.


The Department of Style is a field guide to the timeless, the adventurous, and the enthusiastic. We celebrate craft. We explore tradition. We find the creative imaginations that take classic forms and make them their own.

It is about understanding that in life, doing something right takes time, and skill, and effort. But therein lies the joy. Finding people who still do those things that way and telling their stories is the original Departmental mandate.
