I like the Pope, the Pope wears Belstaff

I like the Pope, the Pope wears Belstaff

In what must be the first piece of breaking ecclesiastical fashion news ever featured on Esquire, we can tell you that Italian fashion house Belstaff has made two special jackets for Pope Benedict XVI. 

The two items, described as a 'unique, contemporary and exclusive parka and jacket', have been designed for Pope Benedict XVI to wear during his official journeys, the parka making use of a special opaque water-proof material, specifically designed with His Holiness in mind.

Belstaff owner and vice-president Michele and Manuele Malenotti (pictured) presented them in person, but we understand that there are no plans for a spin-off line. www.belstaff.it
