    Belstaff Tourist Trophy

    Saw one at the NYC motorcycle show yesterday. Totally sweet jacket, it's the original waxed cotton with the addition of crash padding.

    Problem is even the 3xl was a bit too small for me, but I'm on a diet, so here's hoping!

    Waxed cotton

    If you check with Aerostich they also offer a waxed cotton jacket that I am sure is similar to the Belstaff. I have a waxed cotton Belstaff and Barbour and wear Barbour jackets duck hunting. Nothing works better in day long driving rains. And you don't sweat like other GoreTex type outerwear. I plan on taking a look at the Aerostich jacket when I go to the RA rally in Chippewa Falls.

    Not to hijack the thread, but did you notice if Aerostich had a booth at the NYC MC Show? I'm seriously considering a Roadcrafter and would like to try one on without taking a trip to Duluth.

    Aerostich

    Have never seen Aerostich at any show or rally. I think they would do real well if they showed up and did measuring on site. I know the international MC shows are really expensive for vendors. I thought they would attend a MOA National when in the midwest but never have. I did see where they are involved with the RA National in Chippewa Falls this year. I think they are offering discounts for customers that ride from the RA National to Duluth. I would guess it is about a two hour ride.

    I didn't see Aerostitch. Vanson was there, as was Schuberth.

    Aerostich/Flagstaff Jacket

    I have been Aerostich stuff since 1999. I currently ride with a Roadcrafter 2piece. For the winter I have the Flagstaff Darien Jacket and use the Roadcrafter pants. I love their stuff.
    They never go to any rallies or shows. They have a good aid at their website for sizing up and it is pretty much spot on. Fill it out and they email you back. You can also call them and they will work with you. They have a policy that if you order something and it does not fit, ship it back to them and they will exchange it for the correct size minus/plus the shipping.

    I have the Barbour for times when I want to feel like Steve McQueen. It is very comfortable but it has no protective padding and it is a dark color.
    My Aerostitch is hi vis and has protective padding. It is more proctical, but I don't get the McQueen feeling.
    I once told someone in their 20's that Steve McQueen wore Barbour jackets, but they did not know who he was. Jeez am I getting old.

    That's how I feel. I have a high viz darien jacket that I wear when it's cold, and a high iz bmw shell when it's warm. The belstaff, or barbour would just be for around town.

    Anyone have any experience with the leather Belstaff Knockhill Vintage Trialmaster Jacket? Expensive, probably heavy and no armor, but I still like it.

    I can relate. Last fall a member of the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Club was meeting me at Calgary airport. I told him I would be easy to spot since I would be wearing my Barbour jacket. All the pockets make it ideal for increasing the amount you can carry on.

    When another vintage member didn't know what a Barbour jacket was I knew I was old!

    BMW makes its own homage to the Belstaff/Barbour jacket, called the "New City" jacket. I've been wearing one for the past few years and prefer it to the Aerostich Darien that preceded it.

    I am amazingly fashion challenged (in my work,nice cloths or old cloths look the same quickly) and like the look of that New City Jacket. I'd like to see one in person. I'll have to look around for an idea on cost.
