I had to do a double take with this, trying to work out where I’d seen it before. hen it dawned on me – the Baghera Racing Driver Costume looks to be inspired by Steve McQueen’s racing gear in the Le Mans movie.
Ok, it’s not got the same detailing as the outfit worn by McQueen in the 1971 action movie, but everything is in the right place, right down to the high collar and the vertical stripes done the side.
I’m guessing your little one isn’t going to know that. But you will – and so will other hip parents. As for the actual suit here, it has front zip fastening, a velcro collar and ‘race themed badges’ plus elasticated cuffs at the wrists and ankles.
Sizes are ages three to seven, the price is £59 and there is an image of Steve McQueen at the foot of the page to compare and contrast. More images of the actual suit on the retailer’s site.
