Neighborhood, started in 1994 in Tokyo, Japan, was originally conceived as part of founder Shinsuke Takizawa’s motorcycle enthusiast interests. Neighborhood’s mix of luxury construction standards, and classic utilitarian and subculture aesthetics made the brand a cornerstone of modern streetwear. With shared interests in motorcycling and focus on craftsmanship, Neighborhood x Harley-Davidson is the new iconic duo.
The collaboration fuses the heritage logos of both brands in motorcycle culture inspired style with the perfect touch of streetwear ease and comfort. Comprised of sweatshirts, longsleeve and shortsleeve t-shirts, a lightweight racing jacket and a handful of accessories (hats, mug and sticker pack), each style features both brands’ logos with lightening graphic details and skeletons.
The Neighborhood® x Harley-Davidson® collection launches November 19th at neighborhood.jp and h-d.com/neighborhood, as well as at ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA where the brands will have a collaborative space.
Highlights from the collection include:
NEIGHBORHOOD® x Harley-Davidson® Racing Jacket

This classic, race-inspired silhouette features a snap-tab stand collar, rib-knitting for added comfort and wearability, and front hand-warmer pockets with a secure zipper closure. It’s adorned with a bold skeleton appliqué plus branding that honors these two icons.
