The new Segrave Suit is inspired directly from our two favourite things - motor racing and flying! Sir Henry O'Neal de Hane Segrave was a pioneer for both of these areas, well before he began his Speed Record career. A pilot in the Royal Flying Corps during The Great War, he went on to become the first Briton to win a Grand Prix in a British car in 1923. What is less commonly known of Segrave is that he was in fact born in America; Baltimore, Maryland!
The overalls are an authentic reproduction of the early flying and racing white cotton drill overalls pilots and drivers wore in the 1920s and 1930s. They are oversized, designed to fit over trousers and allow movement in the chest when driving/flying. Finished with the waist belt, they are the epitome of the era. The ankles and cuffs are closed with zips, as per the originals.
Our overalls are a bespoke item, made to order in England, so please allow 6 weeks for production. For the best fitting, please take a look at the sizing guide below.
