Steve McQueen’s Tweed Jacket Is Up for Grabs

  • Najib Benouar


As far as menswear nostalgia goes, the Ivy-antihero Steve McQueen is on Mount Olympus.

From editors to designers, the man gets name-checked for inspiration as well as instruction more regularly than anyone else—but this takes it to a whole new level, because on Thursday you’ll have the chance to don the actual tweed jacket Steve McQueen wore in Bullitt.

McQueen’s brown herringbone tweed jacket, replete with giant leather elbow pads, hits the Bonhams auction block in two days, courtesy of his son Chad, along with a couple muscle cars from the family stable. And considering the jacket’s estimated to go for $600K to $800K, you might as well spring for the 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt to match the jacket and fully channel the King of Cool. (But in a pinch, a navy turtleneck will do.)
