This is an interesting one. More of a mixed reputation really. Older, real U.K. Belstaffs are considered classics. When the Italians bought the brand (and got it into movies) purists sort of scoffed that they are now a poser brand. They re-issue classics like the leather Panther.
Actually, I own a couple and they are very nice and high quality. A bit over-priced, but still nice coats.
