To celebrate the anniversary of the legendary Steve McQueen’s birthday today. Barbour International Steve McQueen Collection blends American style with Barbour International’s iconic motorcycling heritage.
McQueen was known for his impeccable style and general coolness, long before your likes of David Beckham, Idris Elba, Daniel Craig or David Gandy, McQueen inspired men’s style through his cinematic offerings in such classics as, The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt, The Great Escape or even, often held up as being the most stylish film ever, The Thomas Crown Affair. Oozing style, grace and aspiration, men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him.
Inspired by his personal off camera style, this collection offers summer waxes combined with soft lightweight clothing designed for the warmer months, fingers crossed. Desert colourways add a rustic aesthetic, with authentic sport inspired t-shirts and sweats highlighting the collection’s motorcycling heritage through new archive Steve McQueen graphic prints. Washed American checked and flannel shirts offer a relaxed look perfect for casual occasions, as robust cotton shirts and overshirts emphasise a military influence in a vintage inspired range.
