"A fresh perspective on old Honda favorites," according to Honda spokesperson Angie Nucci. The line, which includes T-shirts, sweat shirts, tote bags and jackets, is priced between $32 and $100 and is available in styles for men and women.

Designed and manufactured in Southern California, and made mostly from cotton, the line was inspired by Honda's archives. Specifically, it was inspired by vintage brochures and advertising for cars, such as the Civic, as well as for scooters and dirt bikes.

"We wanted to make something for the modern-day generation of kids on their Hondas who want to wear something that's more throwback," said Jon Alain Guzik, founder of Hubris Factory, which created the line.
