Steve McQueen rolls uncomfortably over in his grave...

I thought for a minute when I read this I had inadvertently clicked on the Onion*.



"This icon of the collection in the Autumn/Winter 2012 season, the Mens Barbour MacGrain Waxed Jacket is based on the traditional 1937 motorcycle jacket cut and is a version of an original 1964 ISDT team jacket as worn by Steve McQueen. Made from a heavy 8oz wax, this 4 pocket jacket features a simulated mud-splattered design made of rubber compounded mud - made to match the mud marks on Steve’s original jacket. It features concealed stud bellows pockets, cord collar with collar strap, leather trimmed buckle and is finished with an ancient Barbour tartan lining."

...and it's all yours for the meager sum of £499 ($760US).

Save your money. Steve seemed to do fine without a jacket.



P.S. Well, maybe some of us may need a bit of covering nowadays.

Fake mud eh? I would demand some fake holes and some fake wear marks as well.

Minus the fake mud, it's a really nice-looking jacket.

To me, this jacket isn't any worse than the Steve McQueen stuff Triumph's been hawking, including the McQueen Bonnie.

Do they sell that fake mud? I'd like to have that McQueen Bonnie and the mud would finish the look. Then when I go to the bar on the corner everyone who sees it on my trailer would think I ride in the dirt. I might even put some on my Hummer.
