The Cincinnati Kid – Barbour Steve McQueen

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 Collaboration

Exciting news for fans of Barbour. They have done a collaboration with Steve McQueen, one of the most iconic figures among men over the past century. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Barbours International Motorcycle Clothing line, they have teamed up with Mcqueen, who you is infamous for his exploits on a motorcycle in the famous getaway scene in The Great Escape. In the 60’s, McQueen actually wore a Barbour jacket to take part in a motorcycle race in East Germany. In fact, Barbour was the staple motorcycle jacket for most of the British International Motorbike teams from the mid 30’s through to the mid 70’s

The upcoming commemorative collection of Barbour clothing looks very much worth waiting for. They are doing a collection of jackets, t-shirts, knits and shirts. As usual though, it’s their McQueen motorcycle jackets that people are talking about. Some feature a large print of Steve McQueen inside the lining of the jacket which are bound to be popular. We are in particular looking forward to the upcoming Barbour Penton and Bud Jackets which are adorned with the American flag on the lining of the jacket. Nice indeed. They should be available from official stockists of Barbour around the world from this August.
