Vintage Belstaff Gold Label Roadmaster Style Waxed Cotton Biker Jacket L
Belstaff was founded in 1924 by Eli Belovitch and his son-in-law Harry Grosberg, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire in the UK. The name Belstaff is a combination of Eli’s surname and his Staffordshire home. Belstaff was the first company to use wax cotton in the manufacturing of waterproof apparel for motorcycling.
This is a vintage Roadmaster style Gold Label Belstaff waxed cotton biker jacket, with a collar belt, and 4 front bellow pockets to carry all your kit.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with heavy general signs of use, abrasion, and discolouration throughout. There have been stitch repairs to the left (as worn) cuff area, and fraying to the cuff areas with some small holes. Also stitch repairs to the lining where there are still some holes/ fraying. The belt is missing and this jacket has quite a strong vintage wax smell. Not quite perfect but if you are looking for a well worn vintage Belstaff then this is the one for you.
Please note wax cotton has a unique smell even when new, and over time for a vintage jacket this can become a stronger more enhanced smell, which in this case is also quite musty. PLEASE BE AWARE - If you have never had a wax jacket and are unfamiliar with the type of smell then we would not recommend to buy a used or vintage wax jacket.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
COLOUR: Faded Dark Brown/ Black, this is quite an unusual colour.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.

Please do not solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand.
