About Barbour Steve McQueen
The Barbour Steve McQueen collection was launched in the Autumn/Winter of 2012 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Babrour’s motorcycle clothing range, International. The range pays tribute to Actor Steve McQueen who was at the peak of his career in the 60’s and 70’s having played roles in films such as The Sand Pebbles, The Blob, Papillon and many more. Aside from his Acting career, Steve McQueen was well known for being somewhat of an adrenaline junky, often performing his own stunts. One of his biggest passions was motorcycles, something which he showed off in the chase scenes of film ‘The Great Escape’. Off scene, he was heavily involved in off-road motorcycle racing along with other motor sports. Steve McQueen was famously seen wearing a Barbour jackets on a number of occasions, one being during his participation in the International Six Day Trials Racing Challenge. Testament to the hard wearing and protective nature of Barbour clothing. It seems that this was a collaboration just waiting to happen and we are so glad that it finally has. Gary Burnand of Barbour says “We are delighted to be launching the Barbour Steve McQueen collection and to reunite two old friends” and we couldn’t agree more.

The Barbour Steve McQueen Clothing collection is made up of a number of classic hard-wearing jackets, chunky knits, casual shirts with lots of check and a handful of t-shirts using photography of the man himself and his motorcycles. Earthy tones, blacks, greens and blues tend to be a running theme throughout Barbour Steve McQueen clothing which perfectly captures McQueen’s own personal style. Infinities are so privileged to offer this amazing collaboration between such an honest British brand and the legend which is Mr Steve McQueen.
