THE TRIALMASTER: CELEBRATING AN ICON
Crafted with precision to protect on even the most testing journeys, Belstaff and guests celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the waxed cotton Trialmaster.
Launched in 1948, this jacket was originally designed to endure the harsh weather conditions in the Scottish Six Day Trials. This signature four pocket silhouette had revolutionary design details: a slanted map pocket, pivot armholes, and pre curved sleeves for improved fit and comfort, while the waxed cotton fabric provided all weather protection.
This innovative functionality ensured the jacket was worn by moto racing hero Sammy Miller, MBE, who wore Belstaff in over 1000 races, with other moto riders quickly adopting the style. Worn and celebrated by icons including Steve McQueen, Che Guevara, Kate Moss, David Beckham and featuring in multiple Hollywood movies, its heritage of durability and style gives the Trialmaster design its timeless appeal even decades later, keeping it a modern day essential.
Belstaff’s purpose since 1924 has been to provide protective clothing for generations of pioneers, which now includes today’s modern day adventurer.

For close to a century Belstaff has been making clothes for men and women who want a bit more from life, to push the limits.
With heritage of technical innovation rooted in the north of England, the company started life by kitting out some of the most daring people the world has seen. Our iconic jackets had the back of everyone from aviator Amy Johnson to adventurer TE Lawrence and revolutionary Che Guevara. We still make those jackets today - and we still kit out some of the world's most questing individuals - but we are much more besides.
Technically excellent, beautifully crafter British design and know-how - this is at the heart of what we do. Our clothes and accessories are beyond fashion but always in style, innately cool, appealing to men and women who are used to going the extra mile and living life on their own terms. Our clothes range from robust, high performance wear for the most exacting of conditions to perfectly judged pieces for more everyday adventures.
Whether around the town, trekking across the world or flying off for a long weekend, Belstaff has the clothes, the boots and the bags to take you there.
Rigorously designed, effortlessly good-looking and built for life: Belstaff is for people who don't think getting dressed is the most important thing they'll do that day.
