Ewen McGregor and Charlie Boorman are both pictured wearing Belstaff jackets in this photo. The pair teamed up for the hit tv series Long Way Down and Long Way Round. Wearing Belstaff jackets, the pair ventured off on their motorcycles in exhausting conditions to produce a quality tv programme which is now available to download from online stockists.
The individual jackets are actually a new style of jacket commissioned by Belstaff for the programme. Cordura 1500 was the chosen shell to protect the pair in the event of falling from their bikes and is perfect for the variations in temperatures that the pair faced. The jacket is now commonly known by Belstaff as the ‘Long Way Down jacket‘

Originally formed back in the 1920’s by Harry Grosberg in Stoke-On-Trent, Belstaff was initially known for designing waterproof clothes for both men and women. They actually completed the milestone of creating the first waterproof clothing that was classed as ‘breathable’. This is know commonly known as ‘wax cotton’, which Barbour are also famed for using. In the 1930’s Belstaff were producing jackets and outerwear for the likes of people in the armed services and motorcyclists.
Since then Belstaff have became more and more popular on a Worldwide level, creating a material called Belfresh, with the idea being that it keeps you cool in the warmer weather.
