Out in style

OK, so they are not the same jackets at all, but it just seemed right to put them in the same blog.

Read on, it will all make sense ...

The new Barbour Enduro Steve McQueen jacket is something special. As a part of the lifestyle collection after one of the most stylish men of all time, the leather jacket, with Barbour red tartan inner, with an original McQueen print adorning the lining.

The slim fit jacket with buckle neck fastener and zip and button front, with pleated bellow pockets. The jacket ouses style, and comes in a variation in the waxed charcoal Greenham jacket.

Not as premium as the leather, the Greenham is a lot of jacket for the price.

With a Steve McQueen inner print, the waxed coat has two bellow pockets on the front, with a zip chest pocket on the left.

The neck fastener is a racer detail, with double stud fastening, along with a logo on the left arm. The jacket is also part of the McQueen lifestyle collection.

So on to the down Explorer coat, the link was only weak as I consider someone like McQueen to have been a bit of an adventurer/explorer himself, pushing back boundaries, the Explorer seemed to fit right in alongside that.

This full length quilted jacket boasts a detachable hood, button and zip fastening on the front, where four pockets, two chest, two bottom with large flap covers.

Sporting branded buttons throughout, the detachable/adjustable hood gives the coat a two-use style with a contrast inner.

Also part of the Lifestyle range but not the McQueen one, this coat along with the others are something special, timeless you could say.

Becoming synonymous for this timeless style as much as his films, McQueen also symbolises Persol sunglasses and can be easily tied into labels such Common People and Penguin.

Well he isn't the King of Cool for nothing is he ...
