Barbour 75th anniversary International jackets
Barbour created the International jacket specifically for the 1936 International Six Day Trials – which is where the jacket takes it’s name from. Designed with pure functionality in mind, the International became the jacket of choice amongst professional motorcyclists through the 1950’s – 1970’s, it was also worn by Steve McQueen, and also the legendary stunt rider Bud Ekins.
This iconic olive jacket has been produced with a painstaking attention to detail, with nothing over looked – from the original ISDT Union flag embroidered badge, to the original pocket sizes, belt, collar fastening and tartan lining everything has been reproduced as closely as possible. It’s available as new, or in an aged, distressed finish which looks really authentic and like it’s seen decades of use.
Both finishes are available in very limited quantities though – so if you want to put your own wear and tear into one, or if you’d prefer it already done then the choice is yours just get in there quickly. If you fancy one of these they’re available to purchase here and if you’d like to see more about the history of the jacket, Barbour have a section on their website here.
