BOSS Limited Edition Leather Jacket In Honor of The Legendary Mille Miglia

BOSS presents the Limited Edition leather jacket in honor of the legendary Mille Miglia Style meets performance: In honor of the 2015 edition of the Mille Miglia – the “Thousand Miles” are also known as the most beautiful race in the world, BOSS has created a limited edition jacket, of which only 722 will be made. Sporty yet sophisticated, vintage yet innovative: that is the BOSS definition of the Mille Miglia. The jacket is made of brown lamb leather and combines classic design with the modern utility of an aviator jacket for those who are ready to take on the open road, either in a rare vintage convertible or a modern racing car. The fur trim on the collar is detachable which reveals a knitted insert (the inside of the collar is lined with knit), the zippers on the arms are hidden, and the ultra-precise pattern construction on the back of the jacket allows for optimal freedom of movement despite the jacket’s slim cut – ideal for navigating hairpin turns. The jacket also has ventilation slots under the arms and a two-way zipper that provides additional comfort. The Limited Edition leather jacket includes a variety of modern features, such as a precisely located inner credit card pocket so that the wearer can go through toll booths in a flash. The number “722” is printed on the back of the jacket’s Climate Control inner lining using special 3D quilting. Not only that: the jacket is also outfitted with wind catchers at the end of the sleeves, a special cell phone pocket, and a headphones loop. 722 stands for one of the greatest triumphs in the history of motor sports. In 1955, Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson drove a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR in the Mille Miglia. The pair set off at 7:22 a.m., which meant that they were assigned the starting number “722”. The two smashed every record at the time, and their achievement still has not been bested to this day. The Limited Edition jacket also evokes the cooperation between Mercedes-Benz and HUGO BOSS. The jacket will be available from May onwards in selected BOSS stores in Great Britain, Germany, France and Italy as well as online at hugoboss.com
