For this season, Dyhr created intricate, historical reproductions of customized Belstaff jackets from that era, covered in pins and patches, carefully treated (or mistreated) to look like the originals. Of course, even the best replica can't beat customizing your own jacket over years of riding, but if something is necessarily lost in the process of replicating an original, the finishing at Belstaff is undoubtedly impressive. The rest of the collection focused on modern pieces but had plenty more vintage treatments. Moto jeans were riveted, coated, and sandpaper finished; an oil-stained bandanna motif printed on light cotton was used for shirting and outerwear; and a cropped café racer jacket could have been part of The Wild One wardrobe. You might have to buy a bike to achieve Brando levels of cool, but a jacket from this collection would be a good start.
