Addict Pays Homage to Mid-Century Barbour & Belstaff With Its AD-WX-02 BMC Jacket

Japanese motorcycle-inspired brand Addict won’t be new to anyone who has picked up a copy of Clutch Magazine or has a fleeting interest in Japanese made menswear.

Addict pride themselves on offering a unique wardrobe for the modern man which is heavily influenced by 1930s-1970s motorcycle culture. And not just the obvious outlaw stuff either. Think Vincent, Triumph, and BSA. Here we have the AD-WX-02 BMC Jacket which takes cues from the classic ‘international’ style waxed jackets of the 50s, made famous by outdoor heavyweights Barbour and Belstaff.

The style was made famous during the International Six Day Trials (ISDT) and worn by none other than the king of cool himself, Steve McQueen. Addict’s iteration is made from a waxed oil skin cotton with a plaid cotton lining and removable melton wool vest.

It retains the typical pocket configuration and belted waist that these jackets are known for, making them instantly recognizable. With brass hardware, adjustable collar and a heavy-duty zipper, the AD-WX-02 BMC is ready for the long road ahead, or just popping down to your local drinking establishment. Made in Japan, of course.

Available for $1,050 at Clutch Cafe
