Belstaff is one of the world’s most iconic British luxury brands. Although now officially an Italian company, it was originally founded in 1924 in Stoke-on-Trent, and its design range shows just how much it remains true to its British roots. Although Belstaff’s designs have diversified considerably over the years, their sleek, simple clothing harks back to their original inception as jacket designers for motorcyclists.

Spirit of Adventure

The company first opened in 1924, and was run by Eli Belovitch and his son-in-law, Harry Grosberg. Initially, it focused on designing specialist jackets for bikers, and the brand soon became synonymous with high quality, weather-protective clothing. Indeed, Belstaff were the first to develop a water resistant wax cotton, which became their trademark fabric. In addition to being embraced by motorcyclists, Belstaff quickly became a firm favourite with the aviation crowd, and with motor-racing enthusiasts.

Iconic Luxury British Brand

One of Belstaff’s most instantly recognisable designs was the 4-pocket jacket, which motorcar racers soon took as their own. However, over the years, Belstaff’s range widened considerably, and now, in addition to outerwear, the company also designs a full range of clothing for both men and women. However, despite offering a lot of diversity in style, their tough, no-nonsense dedication to the luxury sportswear style is still evident in all their garments and accessories.

Loved by Celebrities

Belstaff swiftly attracted a celebrity following, and historical fans have included Amelia Earhart, Che Guevara and T.E. Lawrence. In the 21st century, it’s not uncommon to see big names like Jemma Kidd, Sarah Jessica Parker and David Beckham stepping out in a Belstaff garment. In addition to outerwear and clothing, they also design shoes, handbags, scarves, belts and other accessories.
