Belstaff has partnered up with online fashion-resale platform Vestiaire Collective to sell ten vintage motorcycle jackets from its ‘60s and ‘70s archive.
The collection pays tribute to the Scottish Six Days Trial — the world’s oldest motorcycle event, which inspired Belstaff’s signature hand-waxed Trialmaster jacket.
“What we really wanted to share is both Belstaff’s sense of history and its spirit of adventure, which has always been encapsulated by those that have worn it,” said Belstaff creative director Delphine Ninous. Her personal favourite is the bright red Trialmaster, for its distressed fabric and colours that show through the jacket’s wear. “It definitely carries some adventures through it,” she added.
The cheapest jacket comes in at £800, and two of the hard-to-find red wax jackets are being sold for (in excess of) £1500. A couple of the jackets also have patches and badges added by their original owners.
