Easy Rider, A Long Way Down, Benjamin Button. Leather jackets should always tell a story…
It’s no secret that leather jackets are the perfect attire for adventurous spirits, for rebels without a cause, for fighters like Brad Pitt, and for singers like James Dean. And while we all know that leather jackets are a universally cool item – whatever that means – wearing one can seem a little daunting.
The prospect of buying a brand new leather jacket is almost as intimidating as staring at a blank screen. Where to start?
Well, there’s a solution, and it’s like inheriting an unfinished story. The film isn’t over yet – Brad Pitt hasn’t stopped punching people – but halfway through you’re given the challenge of finishing it. It’s a baton pass, a bestowing of responsibility, a gift… reclaiming – RePocketing – a leather jacket gives you – and it – new life.
Belstaff is renowned for being very good with leather. Their jackets are timelessly British, personifying the adventurous spirit that we pride ourselves on: sunset chasing, rock ‘n’ roll loving, wind-in-the-hair-type-feeling.
Take this Belstaff striped number in gold, for example. It’s lived. Maybe it’s been around the world? Been used on a movie set? Ridden on the back of a Harley Davidson all the way up the M6? And the best thing about a RePocketed Belstaff jacket? It’s a third of the price, coming in at under £300, which, for a Belstaff jacket, is a bargain.
The only limit is your imagination.
