Monterey, CA-based luxury menswear brand Robert Talbott has partnered with America’s premier vintage racing organization Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) as its official gentleman’s apparel sponsor. With this new sponsorship, Robert Talbott will provide exclusive champion’s jacket for the top performing drivers of the year as well as several other initiatives with details to come.

Robert Talbott’s support of SVRA’s unprecedented growth of vintage racing builds on the brand’s already established presence in motorsports and among car enthusiasts. Bob Corliss, the company’s President and CEO, is a lifelong racing enthusiast and races for Robert Talbott Motorsports. The brand also dressed the editors of Automobile magazine for the unveiling of its All Stars 2016 Awards Party held just before the New York International Auto Show.

“Racing is like business, it requires a complete commitment physically, emotionally and mentally,” said Corliss. “The members and followers of SVRA are people of discerning taste who share our appreciation of quality, style and a commitment to a meticulous process in meeting the highest standards.”

“Robert Talbott is a perfect brand fit with the SVRA,” added Tony Parella, president and CEO of SVRA. “The brand prides itself on a dedication to quality, craftsmanship and classic styling. People who appreciate vintage racing understand those quality values. Robert Talbott finds inspiration in fine, international styling, and, again, that rings true with our members.”
