Style Advisor: Off Duty Sportswear

We have a passion that verges on the fetishistic for sportswear and its icons here at FLANNELS HQ. From retro styling to high-performance pieces, the whole spectrum of the slick sartorial genre is appreciated by us and our highly stylish audience. And something exciting is happening right now. Sports clothing is moving away from its purely athletic history and is growing up. As sporting silhouettes have found their way on to the high fashion runways, heritage brands like Belstaff are bringing their design pedigree and technical expertise to the category – with sophisticated results. Here’s how we’re wearing the new breed of refined but technical sportswear staples.

Belstaff’s lightweight and contemporary Talbrook jacket combines subtle workwear references with modern materials and design details. Wear with slim-fit tracksuit bottoms and some tech-y sneakers – low-key and versatile.


Forego the tyranny of ties and shirt collars with a polo and zip-up worn with your favourite pair of chinos. Informal but a far car from scruffy, the Belstaff Slipstream jacket is as trim as they come with laser-cut pockets and weatherproofing worthy of the storied moto brand.

The technical stretch nylon, reflective details and laser cut precision of the Belstaff Vapour jacket has got us almost as excited as we were when we first heard that pullovers were making a come-back. Now, we’re wearing it like a grown man with cargo pants and luxe sneakers.
