His passion grew into a vocation, collecting old motorbike jackets, mainly from the 1920s to 40s, which initially served as an inspiration, and like the jackets, the motorbikes in his garage at home increased in number. Soon, he gained a reputation for making the best leather jackets throughout Greece, and word of his fame eventually reached Harley-Davidson. 12 years ago, Theodoros was hired to develop motorbike clothing for the European market and to supervise its production in India.
