The British outdoor and sporting clothing company Barbour celebrates the 75th anniversary of its legendary motorcycle jacket with a limited edition in the original dark green.
The International Jacket was developed in 1936 for the motorcycle race „International Six Day Trials“ (ISDT). During the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s the International Jacket was the favourite of motorcycle race pilots.
One of the most famous wearers was US-actor and style icon Steve McQueen, who was passionate about motor sports. His friend, the legendary stunt driver Bud Ekins, who doubled McQueen in the film “The Great Escape”, was also wearing this jacket back in the days.
The Barbour International Jacket is a replica from the historic original, made from 8oz waxed coated cotton, and dark green like the original. The waxed cotton from the limited edition replica has been specially treated, giving it an aged and worn-in finish.
It features 100% cotton Barbour Tartan lining, a two-way front zip, an under studded storm fly front, set-in sleeves with ventilation eyelets, corduroy inner collar and cuffs, and four front and two back pockets.
In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, only 75 jackets will be available.
