Belstaff has the reputation for crafting some of the most sought after pieces of outerwear in the world. Belstaff UK has exemplified a rugged heritage British look for over 80 years. Founded by Harry Grosberg in Stoke on Trent, Belstaff’s original mission was to create jackets that would cater for motorcyclists, aviators and the armed forces; areas that their high quality fabrics and world beating construction techniques were more than capable of living up to. Despite their focus on embracing everything to keep their wearers protected from the elements, it was Belstaff jackets that made the biggest impact on the fashion world, with silhouettes such as the now iconic Belstaff Trialmaster, Fieldmaster Jacket and Racemaster Jacket becoming a thing of legend amongst premium designer outerwear enthusiasts.
It is no wonder that the sought after nature of a Belstaff jacket has developed in modern fashion culture - leading to the inspired label becoming notorious for high quality, effortlessly cool and eternally desirable styles. With designs from the 50’s and 60’s becoming key collectors pieces, the brand have recently moved into modern interpretations on some of their key silhouettes using lightweight nylons to create the Recon Overshirt and printing their iconic Phoenix logo across t-shirts and hoodies.
Marking their conscious driven approach, the brand also conduct many charitable efforts through the charity ‘Belstaff Charity- Not On Our Watch’, whilst Belstaff Wax Jackets have found themselves in the wardrobes of everyone From Brad Pitt and David Beckham to the late, great, Steve McQueen, proving their position as a culturally and historically significant piece of international style.
