Belstaff’s definitive jacket since 1948, the Trialmaster was initially designed with the Scottish Six Day Trial in mind. The SSDT was a grueling off-road motorcycle race meaning the jacket had to be constructed of durable materials to keep the rider warm and dry. The result was a timeless design that was built to last with 6 oz. waxed cotton. The Trialmaster is both water and wind repellent and boasts a stylish and fitted silhouette. Pair this jacket with a pair of selvedge denim jeans and stylish pair of boots for a smart, ready for the great outdoors style.
