    Belstaff

    Have Belstaff discontinued the Roadmaster? Canít see it on their website! Is there much difference between the Trailmaster and Roadmaster?

    Assume you mean trialmaster. Canít answer the first, but trialmaster is a boxier more generous cut.

    Go for the roadmaster as a slimmer more flattering cut, and more suited to modern day styles.

    But sounds like the trialmaster is more suited to modern day shapes!

    Now Belstaff is owned by one of the world's largest manufacturers of chemicals and oil products (INEOS), which I find a bit strange, I guess anything can happen.

    They are designing and will be building a Defender rival - their £500m+ entry into the car market - and bought this as the start of lifestyle brand development. They don't do things by halves it seems.

    The Roadmaster is now called the Trialmaster. This is a more fitted and modern cut. No tilted Pockets.
    The Trialmaster (one tilted breast pocket) is now called Fieldmaster. Bit boxier, but only a bit compared how they used to be.

    Like all Belstaff try them on becasue sizing is all over the place - I'm a 42-44 and have 52 generally and M in old belstaffs, but also have an old L.

    i do work for Belstaff and go to there sample sales and sell jackets on here from time to time and have 14 in my wardrobe at present

    The trialmaster is the original est 1948 and the roadmaster came after that and as the OP mentioned the road masters are currently not being made any more - though you can find them in the outlets Bicester and Cheshire oaks

    the trialmaster has been brought back to celebrate 70th anniversary the main difference is the trialmaster is a ever so slightly slimmer fit in my opinion and has a pocket slightly out turned as opposed to the roadmaster whixehifh has 4 straight pockets.

    The roadmaster also has double zip the trialmaster has a singular zip but thatís about all, I donít doubt the roadmaster will no doubt be back at some point in the future but itís not being made for the time being.

    Oh and yes sizing is all over the place Iím a 46 uk and have jackets from Belstaff that for me in 52.54,56 and 58 itís a minefield!!!

    I dont actually work for Belstaff I do work for Belstaff (I work in recruitment) so donít know exactly but usually if itís not on Belstaffís site that means itís not being made and I noted they were in the sale recently so Iíd guess not.

    https://www.belstaff.co.uk/citymaste...5C61N0158.html

    I only know about the roadmasters as they never normally appear in the sales and the last one they were there enough mass (wish Iíd got more now) so it prompted me to ask.

    Thereís so many jackets in the range with ever so slight tweaks so Iíd guess it will be there under a different name with subtle differences

    I have a Circuitmaster waxed cotton jacket which I bought around 5 years ago, which is basically a Roadmaster, except even more tailored fit and heavier cotton.

    That style didnít last long and doesnít seem to have been available for a while now.

    My missus has either the road or trial master and hardly wears it. I've got the Barbour equivalent and 2 other Barbour wax offerings. They'll all outlast us.
    Her Belstaff and my two Barbour internationals are all tailored fit but the Citymaster is pretty relaxed.
