Finally, the solution for what to wear if you own an AMG.
AMG has partnered with ASSOS of Switzerland to provide the first clothing line that AMG owners can wear.
I have always been a fan of AMG; their big, dumb, tire-eating machines stuffed into normal looking Mercs awoke many inner-eight-year-old children within the car enthusiast community. Including mine. AMG-Mercedes have always been one of the best blends of luxury and muscle available to those with big bank accounts and big imaginations. They are not the choice for level-headed, practical people looking for good value.
Mr. Clarkson owned at least one. He also made many films around them in the now forgotten era. No one more than Clarkson embodies what AMG is conceptually, physically. Honestly, what is a better display of ostentatious wealth and bombastic power than lifting a gull-wing door and firing a sub-machine gun out of it? Who better to ruin a few thousand dollars worth of tires in under a minute?
Well apparently, there is a new and better (see: less shooty) way to demonstrate your superiority, wealth, and power. Enter amg-performance-wear.com. Using the same company who supplies the racing suits for the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, AMG has entered a market dominated by the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, and BMW.
What AMG has brought to the table are various selections of outer and underwear, all available in whatever color you want, so long as you only want black. All pieces are available a la carte, but most impressively they have bundled their wares into one of two packages. The smaller of the two contains; a pullover, polo, and a pair of socks, while the "APW Edition 1 Full kit for man" is the entire lot all for just fifteen hundred of Great Britain's finest Pounds. The "APW Edition 1 Full kit for woman" is a proper bargain being thirty Pounds less money, presumably because you're paying for the yards of black fabric used.
Whatever the reason, the full collection is obviously the way to go. It would be terribly embarrassing to be seen around town in your brown S65 wearing some pedestrian Givenchy jumper, better to have your AMG options at the ready.
