    For close to a century Belstaff has been making clothes for men and women who want more from life, to the push the limits.

    Technically excellent, beautifully crafted British design and know-how is at the heart of what we do, and our clothes are beyond fashion but always in style, innately cool and appealing to men and women who are used to going the extra mile and living life on their own terms.

    Our iconic jackets had the back of everyone from aviator Amy Johnson to adventurer TE Lawrence and revolutionary Che Guevara. We still make those jackets today - and we still kit out some of the world's most questing individuals - but we make much more besides. Rigorously designed, effortlessly good-looking and built for life: Belstaff is for people who don't think getting dressed is the most important thing they’ll do that day.

    A new automotive brand with an uncompromising vision, INEOS Automotive is on track to produce its first off-road vehicle by the end of 2020, in time for the 36th America’s Cup. 
    The brainchild of INEOS Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a keen adventurer and a lifelong fan of rugged 4x4s, ‘Project Grenadier’ has come a long way since the idea was first conceived in The Grenadier pub in London in 2017.
    Built in the spirit of 4x4 pioneers such as the Willys Jeep, Projekt Grenadier is on course to deliver a British-inspired and designed, expertly engineered 4x4 that’s just at home pulling a plough, leading an expedition or driving up to Buckingham Palace.
    Projekt Grenadier will partner with INEOS Team UK on their journey to New Zealand, with the teams working closely to share ideas and expertise – as well as competitive spirit – along the way.
