Morgan's and Phillip's preserving automotive history
May '11
Morgan's and Phillip's announced licensing agreement with Barris Kustom City as well as an expanded range of Shelby American for summer 2011. Both Barris and Shelby are legends in the automotive industry whose legacies still shape the industry today. M&P is committed to preserving the rich history of automotive and motorcycle culture by creating more than just automotive themed shirts.

“The difference with our apparel, is that everything we do is based in reality, from our Barris shop shirt that is a reproduction of the actual shirt worn by Barris employees in the late 40's, to our lost race track series” said Michael Satterfield founded of M&P.

Getting the history right is important to the team at M&P, who spend hours researching each product, pouring over vintage publications, searching the internet, or hunting through their vast archive of vintage apparel. Unlike many companies who produce “vintage themed” apparel, M&P products have the correct look, feel, and style of the era. This has proven popular with both purists in the automotive community and the world of fashion.

“I am not fashion a guy; I am a car guy and history nerd, growing up in Southern California with the car culture and I always felt like I was born a little too late. I missed the days when racetracks were just about everywhere. We have lost Riverside International Raceway, Ontario Motor Speedway, Fontana Drag City, and a half dozen other tracks that were in the area. I started researching these tracks and the men and women who raced on them. That's how it all got started,” said Michael.

M&P sees an opportunity to preserve some unique American history with their products, even if it is just in a small way. Their studio is just north of historic Route 66 in California, and a focus of upcoming products will be local historic roadside attractions that once greeted millions of travelers coming to California on the mother road.

The passion of all things automotive has spread around the world, M&P products can now be found in six countries outside the USA and more dealer inquiries come in everyday. The company recently opened up dealers in Japan and Australia where the product line has become popular in mainstream retail shops.
