To commemorate the hugely popular Barbour Steve McQueen collaboration, the official Barbour site have unveiled a competition to win a trip to the International Six Day Enduro 2013. A party of four, including yourself, could win a trip to the famous Sardinian motorbike event with accomodation and travel included. £125 spending money will be thrown in as well as probably the best prize…a Steve McQueen jacket each. To enter you simply have to answer which year Steve McQueen raced in the ISDT.

We were watching The Cincinnati Kid last night and it got us thinking about the inspiration behind the Barbour x Steve McQueen collaboration again. So we did a bit of googling and found this moodboard which helped create the collection. It makes us really look forward to the cooler weather despite this heatwave we’re having at the moment. Chad McQueen described Steve’s style as “Classic, elegant, cool and timeless” and we completely agree. The detailing and prints are so thought about and the jackets are truely life time collectors pieces.
Barbour x Steve McQueen, the long awaited collaboration between the screen legend and the outerwear specialist is finally with us and available to buy. The collaboration has been talked about for quite a while and they have had McQueen and Barbour fans around the world, eager for them to be released. Finally last week, Barbour released the collections to independent outlets around the country and they are all reasonably priced.
The gorgeous Barbour x Mcqueen Greenham Jacket pictured at the top of the article is a 6oz sylkoil waxed slim fit jacket. Taking inspiration from classic looking motorcycle jackets of bygone days, this jacket is going to be a hit this Autum/Winter. Featuring a large print of Steve McQueen on the inside back and Barbour branding on the left arm, people are going to be envious of you wearing this jacket. Quilt lining finishes the inside front of this full zip up closing piece and the motorcycle inspiration is again evident with the leather racing collar.
Another impressive release from the collaboration is the Barbour x McQueen Competition Zip Through Cardigan. Without a shadow of a doubt, this iconic piece of clothing is one of the pieces from the collection that a lot of people will associate with the International Six Day Trials that McQueen competed in for the USA. A full zip up, 5 gauge plated knit cotton cardigan with press stud fastening pockets. Badges adorn the left arm area and add to the retro motorcycle feel.
There is no doubt that the Barbour x McQueen collaboration is going to be popular this season and people are going to be lucky to get hold of them as most stores have limited numbers available. The full collection also contains t-shirts, shirts, other jackets and cardigans which we will be featuring soon on the Barbour Blog so stay with us for more news.
