Classic British outwear company Barbour is celebrating the opening of a new outpost in New York’s Soho with help from Steve McQueen's son.
McQueen first wore a Barbour International jacket while representing the United States team in the 1964 International Six Day Trials (ISDT) motorcycle race in East Germany. His original jacket will be on display at the invitation-only opening of the store next week.
The jackets in the McQueen collection feature archival images of the actor on their linings. Barbour, founded in 1894, holds Royal Warrants from HM Queen Elizabeth II, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and HRH The Prince of Wales. The new store, on Wooster St. in Soho's historic Cast Iron District, is their fifth in the U.S.
