Jordan bespoke celebrates iconic motorsport legends with the launch of two luxury leather duffle bags for charity

Posted on the 30th July 2020

Simon Jordan has created and designed fine leather goods for over 15 years, designing luxury leather products and accessories for private clients, including many of the heroes of motorsport. His company, Jordan Bespoke, also supplies several corporate clients including Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, McLaren and Sunseeker yachts.

To coincide with the British Grand Prix double header on 2nd and 9th August, Jordan Bespoke is delighted to celebrate two British motorsport legends, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE and Jim Clark OBE, with the unveiling of two luxury leather duffle bags to help raise funds for Race Against Dementia and The Jim Clark Trust.

The Champions of Monaco duffle bag celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Monaco Grand Prix and partners exclusively with Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia (RAD) charity. Crafted from the highest quality Scottish leather the bag is finished in dark blue, complimenting the colours of the RAD charity logo.

As a lifelong motorsport enthusiast, Jordan has blended his passion for the sport with business to create luxury goods depicting racing heroes. Sir Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark are famous as fellow Scots, two racing legends, great friends and rivals competing in the 1960’s, an era defined by danger and glamour.

The Jim Clark luxury leather duffle bag celebrates one of motorsport’s greatest heroes with a colour scheme that perfectly depicts his famous blue and white peaked helmet. The beautiful exterior styling includes the exclusive use of Jim Clark’s personal signature. The interior lining combines black and white Formula One images of Jim Clark with the dynamic colour of Cameron of Erracht Ancient, the Clark Family Tartan.

“Every Jordan Bespoke product has a part of my heart and soul within it, especially when it is motorsport related, but working with a hero like Sir Jackie to help the Race Against Dementia and The Jim Clark Trust, takes that to another level. My Father suffers with dementia and I know how destructive it is. Playing a small part in the fight against the disease is very important to me and many others around the world. Jim Clark has always been an icon for me. One of my very first designs was inspired by Jim Clark with Classic Team Lotus. It has been an honour working with The Jim Clark Trust to create a product that captures Clark’s personality and inspiration. If you love stylish design, quality leather, motorsport and would like to help support two very worthy charities, please visit our website and contact us to find out more.”

Simon Jordan, Founder of Jordan Bespoke

“I’ve used a Simon Jordan bag for many years and was delighted when he suggested creating a unique product to support my Race Against Dementia charity. Dementia is a cruel disease that will affect many of our lives, it is my aim to ensure we do all we can to beat the disease and ease the lives of those who suffer from it. Every Champions of Monaco bag sold will help our charity thanks to our partnership with Jordan Bespoke."

Sir Jackie Stewart

“We are delighted with the quality and style of this unique bag Simon has created that captures the personality and heritage of Jim Clark. The detail is exceptional. I am sure it will be treasured and loved by motorsport fans of the Clark era, travelling for business or pleasure, for special occasions or day to day. Jim Clark and Sir Jackie were great friends and there is a close emotional connection between the two charities. We would like to thank Simon for his passion and support to The Jim Clark Trust and Race Against Dementia.”

Ben Smith, Chair of The Jim Clark Trust

Race Against Dementia - Champions of Monaco, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE bag

The Monaco Grand Prix is rightly considered as the most technical, complex, highly glamorous motor racing street circuit in the world. While street racing in the Principality can be traced back to the late 20s, the first World Championship of Drivers race took place on 21 May 1950. The 100-lap race covered an overall distance of 318.1 km (197.1 miles) and was won by Juan Manuel Fangio for the Alfa Romeo team after he started from pole position. Alberto Ascari finished second for Ferrari and Louis Chiron finished third for Maserati.

Striking bespoke linings are a recognisable and in-demand feature of every Jordan Bespoke bag. The Champions of Monaco duffle has a glorious lining displaying original photographs of Monaco Grand Prix winners over 70 years of racing. Racing legends pictured include Juan Manuel Fangio (1950 winner) Sir Stirling Moss (1961 winner), Alain Prost (1988), Ayrton Senna (1992), Michael Schumacher (1999), David Coulthard (2002) and Sir Jackie himself (1973).
