Belstaff Fieldmaster Jacket - Faded Olive
Belstaff Fieldmaster Jacket in Faded Olive. True to British heritage and taking inspiration from the brand's iconic Trialmaster jacket originally founded in 1948, the Belstaff Fieldmaster encompasses a motorcycling aesthetic merged with versatility and practicality. In fact, the birth of British motorsport in the early 1900s was the precursor of this leading outerwear brand, landmarked by the opening of Brooklands motorsport venue in Surrey, England, along with novel events such as the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy Race and the Scottish Six Day Trial, both of which have become some of the world's biggest motorcycling events.
The Belstaff Fieldmaster Jacket harnesses many of the Trailmaster's original features, namely the wax cotton construction, which not only makes for the ideal heritage look, but is also responsible for the brand's emergence as a leader in utilitarian inspired outerwear.
Belstaff founder Eli Belovitch had humble beginnings in the business of manufacturing and supplying weatherproof fabrics like wax cotton; now Belstaff’s signature fabric, in the form of capes, groundsheets, and tents to the British Army during the Great War. Aided by his son-in-law, Harry Grosberg, Eli migrated his business toward becoming the first to use wax cotton in the creation of wearable waterproof goods with the pair opening an Army, Navy, and General store in Staffordshire in 1924, hence the brand military aesthetic that has been sustained over the century to modern-day.
In keeping with the brands militarian and café racer origins, the Belstaff Fieldmaster Jacket boasts further features, including reinforced articulated shoulders for unrestricted movement, pre-curved sleeves for unmatched fit and comfort, four patch pockets, a studded neck guard and classic buckle belt, in keeping with the styles worn by iconic Belstaff ambassadors, ranging from moto enthusiasts Joe Wright and Malcolm Campbell to expeditioners T.E Lawrence and Amelia Earhart.
Innovation lies at the heart of the brand's essence, a dedication initiated by Harry in a quest for pioneering fabrics that took him across Europe and Asia in the mid-1920s. This evolutionary ethos transcends to modern adaptations of Belstaff's staple pieces, with current wax cottons now being CE certified and coming fully equipped with a waterproof membrane for added protection against the elements, reminiscent of the Belstaff Fieldmaster Jackets' original uses in enduring the weather conditions of the Scottish Six Day Trial or blazing across the natural speedway of Pendine Sands.
No matter your use for this piece, you are sure to experience the vigor of the risk-takers, adventurers, and thrill-seekers for whom the Belstaff Fieldmaster Jacket was originally crafted, making every day an adventure.
