From the internationally-acclaimed Festival of Speed, to the Revival, which is one of the most celebrated historic race meetings in the world, Goodwood’s motor sporting heritage is unrivalled. Over the last 300 years the Dukes of Richmond have shared in their love of sport with guests and friends, so it’s apt that Goodwood and Belstaff should join together to produce a range of practical-but-hip jackets steeped in British heritage. Built to last, the GSR range is not only highly practical but combines innovative design with contemporary style. Each jacket is rooted in Goodwood’s heritage and spirit of adventure, with styling authentically based on the type of clothing that has been worn on the estate for sporting activities throughout the decades.

Luxury British brand Belstaff were the first company to use wax cotton in the manufacturing of waterproof gear for motorcycling. Although originally designed for motorcyclists, aviators and the armed forces, Belstaff jackets have been seen on the backs of many an icon from Edward Lawrence of Arabia, to Che Guevara, Steve McQueen and more recently Brad Pitt and Ewan MacGregor. 

The Brough  

‘Fans of vintage style will love this rugged jacket with its lived-in feel and authentic moto design details’.

The Brough Vintage Jacket is an updated version of Belstaff’s classic moto jacket. Crafted from fine goatskin leather that is soft to touch, the faded brown colour gives it a rugged, lived-in finish. The golden khaki shade is a great alternative to black, especially for the warmer months. The jacket features a dual zip fastening with a motorcycle inspired button latch collar, plus two slanted front zip pockets. 

The padded shoulder and elbow reinforcements, along with the zip detail to each cuff, give an authentic biker look.

The Gordon

For the rebel aristocrat: historic Gordon clan tartan meets edgy biker style.

The Gordon jacket is based on the 1950s Trialmaster model, but takes its inspiration from the Dukes of Richmond and Gordon, whose earthy Gordon clan tartan features throughout the design. Crafted with absolute precision, its subtle, understated check-pattern continues across every seam and pocket.

Key features include a slanted left-hand pocket, giving the rider easy access to his or her essentials while on the bike, while four storm pockets – a fifth internally – provide protected storage for other essentials. There’s a tab-fasten collar to keep the neck drips out, and a belted waist to banish the drafts. The Gordon is far more than weather-proof motorcycle wear, it’s a jacket that will work for almost any occasion. 

The Madgwick Field Navy

For the traditionalist: a versatile, timeless jacket for classic understated style.

Named after the dramatic fast and demanding first corner of the Goodwood Motor Circuit, the classic moto-style Madgwick coat is extremely versatile, will easily fit into any wardrobe and will work for both the city and country. The corduroy collar and interior pocket trims give a traditional feel and provide a contrast of textures to the washed cotton fabric. The utilitarian four pocket design has internal adjustable draw cords to create a more fitted silhouette, as well as provide optimal protection from the elements. The jacket closes with a front zip, while its collar stands with a throat latch, so you can brace the wind and rain with confidence.

The Radford Red

For attention seekers who wish to stand out from the crowd: a dramatic dark-red, modern moto jacket. 

Also launched as an updated version of Belstaff’s iconic Trialmaster silhouette, which was first launched in the 1960s when legendary motorcyclist Sammy Miller was rarely seen without it, this Radford Jacket has a slightly more modern, refined style. A utilitarian four-pocket design with internal drawstrings at the waist and bottom hem give a more streamlined fit. The concealed zip fastening and adjustable sleeve cuffs provide protection from the elements, while the decorative, quilt effect stitching to the elbows and shoulder area adds subtle detailing.

The Essendon

A tailored modern cut for a jacket inspired by renowned motorsport heroes from Goodwood’s heritage.

The Essendon jacket is inspired by Brian Lewis, 2nd Baron of Essendon and teammate and friend of famous racer ‘Freddie March’, the nineth Duke of Richmond. Together with Freddie March he formed part of a group of titled and talented amateurs who did a great deal for the image of British motor racing in the 1920s and 1930s. This four-pocket jacket with leather contrasting sleeves and a corduroy collar is a classic, with a slightly more tailored cut and a simple, contemporary feel making it easy to wear for any occasion.

The Woodcote

For the adventure-seeking traveller: a jacket that exudes motorcycle style.

The “Woodcote” belted wax jacket is named after the last corner on the renowned Goodwood Motor Circuit. Ideal for anyone who seeks adventure as it is waterproof yet extremely light, being crafted from hard wearing waxed cotton. This iconic jacket has authentic moto-details such as a prototypal throat tab and inner heritage lining, and offers the perfect combination of motorcycle style with fashion.
