Steve McQueen Trialmaster jacket (ISDT version)
|In 2007, Belstaff, the Italian based (originally English) designer of upscale
rugged wear and motorcycle gear, released the Steve McQueen Trialmaster jacket under a marketing campaign labeled the
"Steve McQueen Celebration".
This particular 2007 McQueen Trialmaster is modeled after the jacket Steve wore at the International 6 Day Trials in East Germany in 1964 , but it should be noted that the jacket Steve wore in Germany was not a Belstaff but a Barbour. The reason Belstaff claims the honor of releasing this jacket under the McQueen name is because Steve actually wore a Belstaff Trialmaster jacket when biking.
This new Belstaff incarnation of McQueen's Six Day Trials jacket utilizes a new technology called PCM® which actually causes the jacket to modify its temperature in accordance with the wearer's own body-temperature changes (in other words it becomes warmer when the body temperature drops and cools itself when the body temperature rises).
Now that's pretty Cool!
