A great combination of two superb brands
The 1950’s Gordon
The Gordon jacket is based on the 1950s Trialmaster model, but takes its inspiration from the Dukes of Richmond and Gordon, whose earthy Gordon clan tartan features throughout the design. Crafted with absolute precision, its subtle, understated check-pattern continues across every seam and pocket. Key features include a slanted left-hand pocket, giving the rider easy access to his or her essentials while on the bike, while four storm pockets – a fifth internally – provide protected storage for other essentials. There’s a tab-fasten collar to keep the neck drips out, and a belted waist to banish the drafts. The Gordon is far more than weather-proof motorcycle wear, it’s a jacket that will work for almost any occasion. Shop here.
The Brough Vintage Jacket is an updated version of Belstaff’s classic moto jacket. Crafted from fine goatskin leather that is soft to touch, the faded brown colour gives it a rugged, lived-in finish. The golden khaki shade is a great alternative to black, especially for the warmer months. The jacket features a dual zip fastening with a motorcycle inspired button latch collar, plus two slanted front zip pockets. The padded shoulder and elbow reinforcements, along with the zip detail to each cuff, give an authentic biker look. Shop here.
Also launched as an updated version of Belstaff’s iconic Trialmaster silhouette, which was first launched in the 1960s when legendary motorcyclist Sammy Miller was rarely seen without it, this Radford Jacket has a slightly more modern, refined style. A utilitarian four-pocket design with internal drawstrings at the waist and bottom hem give a more streamlined fit. The concealed zip fastening and adjustable sleeve cuffs provide protection from the elements, while the decorative, quilt effect stitching to the elbows and shoulder area adds subtle detailing.
