Le Mans Steve McQueen Black Leather Jacket
Any fans of either Steve McQueen, auto racing or classic ‘70’s movies will instantly recognize this ultra-hip retro genuine leather jacket which was inspired by the one McQueen wore when he played the role of racing car driver Michael Delaney in the cult classic film Le Man’s which was released in 1971.
Almost taking on the appearance of a documentary, the film depicts Le Mans – the world’s toughest race course – during the 1970s. A feat of human endurance, the race lasts over 24 hours with co-drivers alternating every couple of hours. The movie concentrates on the battle for the championship that takes place between the German Erich Stahler driving a Ferrari and McQueen’s American Michael Delaney racing for Porsche. Adding to the tension is the pressure Delaney faces after having recently caused an accident which killed the husband of his friend.
You may not be a racing car driver, or one of the icons of vintage cinema Steve McQueen, but you can certainly steal his style in the Le Mans Steve McQueen Leather Jacket. The jacket has the retro fabric patches and yellow and red stripes down the side, just like the original. There is a pocket with a zipper closure on the chest and the round collar has a snap on popper style button.
Le Mans Black Racing Leather Jacket
Made from genuine cowhide leather, the Le Mans jacket was stitched entirely by hand by our team of talented craftspeople. All seams were sewn twice giving the jacket an even longer life span, no matter how much wear and tear it gets. In fact, the more you wear it the softer and more lived in the leather becomes. Like all of our men’s and women’s leather jackets and coats the Le Mans jacket uses high grade YKK branded zippers.
