How Form Followed Function: The Barbour International Motorcycle Jacket
The classic Barbour International motorcycle jacket was created for motorcyclists who would be racing at the I.S.D.T. (International Six Day Trial)
Put to the test on the track, the jacket was designed to withstand the elements. The waxed cloth would repel mud and rain. The iconic slanted pocket made it easily accessible to reach for maps and time cards.
The jacket was immortalized by the likes of Steve McQueen who raced in the 1964 I.S.D.T. with the U.S. team in their Barbour International jackets.
Today, it remains an ideal choice for both travelers and motorcyclists.
