Pure Motorcycle Style Inspiration

There are literally no motorcycle jackets as iconic as a Belstaff. And it is with good reason: they are both functionally superior, combining road armor with weather protection, and classically stylish. Only tasteful details provide a bit of decoration and even those are executed in such a manner as to enhance your riding pleasure, comfort, and safety without resorting to cheap, shouty graphics and logos. These are jackets designed for real riders hitting the open road.
Their jackets were initially manufactured to withstand the miserable weather conditions during the Scottish Six Days Trial. To do so, Belstaff pioneered three revolutionary details: pivotal armholes allowing better forward rotation, pre-curved sleeves for improved fit and comfort during riding, and a waterproof lining. Designed to capture a uniquely British feeling, the Lavant Blouson (made of leather) and Brooklands Blouson (constructed of waxed 8 oz. cotton) recall days on the English countryside and in towns sprinting from café to café. Their rugged tailoring, durability, and lack of pretense made them the preferred jacket of icons like Mr. Steve McQueen and Mr. T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).
