Quite simply one of the best jackets ever made, and here in one of its earliest and the best iteration! 

The Trialmaster was first introduced in 1948, and quickly became the staple jacket for the explosion in popularity of motorcycling in postwar Britain. Worn on the backs of everyone from Che Guevara to the 59 Club, the Trailmaster was the jacket of choice for a generation of bikers! 

And this example comes straight from the estate of a professional motorcycle rider, who purchased it in 1958. Over the next ten years he would wear this with attending the Isle of Man TT, first as a spectator and then as a competitor. All of the patches and patches are original to the jacket, including a Square & Compass MCC patch and dated TT pins. It also includes an IOM postcard and receipt for a B&B in Douglas , captial of the Isle of Man in 1963. I'm hoping to talk again with the previous owner and get more informatio.

Condition

This is in beautiful used Belstaff condition, and I've not touched it straight out of the garage from which she came... I know some of you like them this way! As can be seen from the photos (and the slight gasoline smell), this jacket is a little on the dirty side. I've given it a light clean to make the lining wearable, and rubbed off old oil, but I wouldn't recommend that you wear this with your favourite white shirt! Expect a few small knicks to the shell, and a couple of repairs here and there. The Aero zipper works well, but the pin is fraying slightly, with care this should be fine.
