Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in Long Way Up. Damn! Ewan and Charley are living the life, ain’t they? Did you know that the two British pals made a new show driving around the world in their bikes? It’s called Long Way Up and they traveled from Ushuaia in Patagonia, the southernmost tip of South America, to Los Angeles in the good ole U.S. of A. Total miles traveled: 13,000! Of course, the two wore Belstaff moto outfits as they did in their previous two journeys (i.e., Long Way Down and Long Way Round). Go check out the show on Apple+ TV.
Now, did you know that our Ewan starred in a Belstaff campaign in 2012? According to Hello Magazine, he loves the brand so much that he actually volunteered to headline the the advertising campaign. More from Hello:
Although usually celebrities are approached by brands, Ewan actually volunteered to be the face of Belstaff, according to their CEO Harry Slatkin.
“Ewan contacted me just after we bought Belstaff with an email titled ‘Born To Ride'”, he said. “With his love of the brand and his inherent rugged good looks he was a natural to be our lead male for the campaign.”
For his part, in an interview with GQ Magazine, the Hollywood A-Lister tells us why he loves him his Belstaff: “I’ve worn Belstaff for years and I ride a bike every day. I love the nostalgia of old motorbikes and the brand’s heritage goes right back to the Twenties. There is stuff in the archive that I would happily wear on my bike today. So I thought a professional relationship would be a really good fit.”

Ewan McGregor Leather Jacket in Long Way Down (8 January 2010). One of the interesting stuff we watched on National Geographic a year ago (or is it two years ago?) is Ewan McGregor and his pal Charley Boorman’s travel documentary, Long Way Down.
It was fascinating to watch and it made us love Ewan even more. Anyhoo, turns out that Ewan and Charley, like Brad Pitt in Benjamin Button, were wearing Belstaff jackets. They were reportedly outfitted by the company which is pretty cool. More photos of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman wearing their Belstaff leather outfits.
