Waxed cotton in the age of Gortex? Why not! Barbour and Belstaff gear have been around for a long long time — Steve McQueen is reputed to have had a Belstaff, and Barbour was the official motorcycle police jacket in 14 different countries. Off the bike or on, if you want to look like you’ve been everywhere and back again, these are them. Deep pockets. Brass zippers. Tartan linings. In both men’s and women’s sizes. Every time I see somebody wearing this stuff, I resolve to go retro. So I’m saving my pennies. Search for "Belstaff" or "Barbour" on the British Motorcycle Gear website.
