    Here's the one you're referring to I believe: https://www.motocentral.co.uk/belsta...ket-black.html

    As for Belstaff sizing, they're getting better but they're still on the smaller fitting, so if you're in between 2 sizes always go for the larger of the 2 is my advice.

    Quick heads up for Belstaff lovers, I've seent he new August range... It's going to be called the Long Way Up Collection including McGregor jacket & they're doing a Pro Shell Gore-Tex Belstaff around £1250 I believe, full suit to compete with Rukka which is where they want to go into soon. I'll send more info when I can, I've got a catalogue images etc for now if anyone wants to see roughly what they look like. There is also the Long way Up series being launched around the same time on Apple TV obviously featuring Charley Boorman & Ewan McGregor.

    I have a small number of Belstaffs, some from my teenage years, some much newer. I have fallen off in a couple if them and the protection was well.......not great. And they both got pretty much destroyed as only cotton. My main observations are that generally they are f'ing cold in winter and a bit hot n summer, and not really any good at keeping rain out after a very short while. And also, if you use them regularly they do generate their own *ahem* "unique aroma" after a while.

    I do have a "Cordura 500" version of the trailmaster which is in fact very good - thicker warmer and much more resilient. And totally waterproof.

    But the most important thing is that they all look great

    Haha that's all very true - the older Belstaffs definitely smell a bit strange after a while. Over the years they've got much better though, don't leave wax residue everywhere like they used to, and from a protection stand point they're reinforced all over with proper armour now. Some of the new materials Belstaff are using is actually much better than 99% of the market, they just don't advertise that side of things as ultimately they're a fashion company. The new Gore-Tex Pro Shell Jacket coming later in the year has shoulder / elbow protection like the old Rukka arma-s jackets if anyone remembers the metal beading... I've been told it's completely indestructable - impressive claims!

    Claymore jackets

    I was going to recommend this company, however the owner decided to suspend production, he said he is having a brake. Custom made and far better quality than the commercial available stuff.
    His website no longer works.
    If you have been affected,offended by any of the issues raised call free on 06213111566 . Not a fat cat...
