Steve McQueen™ Barbour Collection was launched for Autumn Winter 11 To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the “International” motorcycle clothing range including Jackets and knitwear. Barbour is launching a limited edition Barbour Steve McQueen™ capsule collection. It pays homage to one of the most famous wearers of the International jacket.
Steve McQueen lived and raced in his Barbour, most notably when he represented the United States team in the 1964 International Six Day Trials (ISDT) in East Germany. The ISDT is one of the most challenging racing events in the world with each rider covering 200 miles a day over various terrain. Recognising the jacket as the best defence against the European weather, the US team stopped off in London to buy their Barbour International Jackets. The uncomplicated way the jacket design coped with rain and mud made it the perfect choice, while the ergonomic design of the cargo pockets was ideal for storage.
