The Autumn Winter '15 Menswear Collection: Ton-up Boys
The Belstaff Men’s Autumn Winter ‘15 collection takes its inspiration from the ‘Ton-Up Boys’ of the 1950s. Heavily into their rock‘n’roll and motorcycles, these ‘greasers’ (as they would become known) would rendezvous at cafés and attempt to ‘do a ton’ (exceed speeds of 100mph) on their custom-made bikes. Fearless and reckless, they lived for the moment, redefining masculinity as they went.
