Dogleg Mechanics was established when Harry Westendorp and Erik Kouwenhoven met through a mutual friend. With Harry designing and producing apparel and Erik working as a motoring journalist specializing in Porsches, they shared a passion for early Porsches 911 and together restored one classic example from 1965.
During this restoration the idea was born to start a clothing brand with ties to the classic car world. There was no doubt about a name: Porsche's famous dogleg gearbox with the first gear left below formed the inspiration for the new brand.
