These cotton waxed jackets represent an era when motorcycling was but for the few adventurous souls, who searched into an unknown destiny between themselves and the open roads. These early aviators of dirt and asphalt relied in clothing for protection from elements encountered in the unknown roads they sought-out. These ‘icon’ jackets some older, some newer have received modern updates but retain their inherited glory. These are not jackets to purchase and wear, but are to be merited.
The Trialmaster jacket retains a functional utility that is the Belstaff standard. Perfected over decades the Belstaff Trailmaster Tourist Trophy is a versatile biking jacket bringing the spirit of the open road to modern urban living. Hand-waxed cotton seals out the elements, reinforced elbows and shoulders provide extra protection. Throat latch seals out the wind and rain and a cotton lining which stays dry against the body. The jacket is branded with signature Belstaff patch and Union Jack label signify performance.
Belstaff, a British brand, founded in Longton, Staffordshire in 1924, is best known for producing waterproof jackets. Founded in 1924 by Eli Belovitch and Harry Grosberg in Staffordshire, Belstaff produced all-weather jackets for motorcyclists, and was the first company to ever use waxed cotton. The company is now Italian-owned and based in Mogliano Veneto.
