Nico Rosberg in the limited-edition Mille Miglia leather jacket

Mille Miglia: two words that have a special meaning to motorsport fans around the world. This year, BOSS celebrates the legendary road race with an exclusive, limited-edition jacket worn by Formula 1 racing driver Nico Rosberg (above).

Meaning “1,000 miles” (the exact distance from Brescia to Rome and back), the first Mille Miglia race was held almost 90 years ago, in 1927. The event now draws classic car enthusiasts around the world to Italy every May.

Available in a numbered limited edition, each jacket is crafted in vintage-finish lambskin. Modern features, including cell phone and headphone pockets as well as credit card slots on the sleeves, update the classic pilot silhouette for the demands of modern life. The precise cut of the slim fit design is designed for optimal wearing comfort, with climate-control lining, underarm vents for breathability and a back panel engineered for maximum flexibility while steering. The Mille Miglia jacket is finished with a removable fur collar, which can be detached, to reveal beautifully crafted lapels with knitted details.

Inside the jacket, you will find an explicit reference to the Mille Miglia: the number 722 highlighted in 3D topstitching. It references one of the biggest triumphs in motor sports history: the record-breaking victory of Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson in 1955. 722 was the starting number of their Mercedes-Benz 300 SRL, and the pair’s record time of 10 hours 7 minutes and 48 seconds stands unbroken to this day.
