Origin: Switzerland

8JS was created by Sacha Prost, the son of 4-time Formula One world champion Alain Prost, along with his brother Nicolas and sister-in-law Delphine. 

The brand commits itself to the highest quality standards - manufacturing in Italy and Portugal - seeking only the best partners for each product. The 8JS man needs garments which he can rely on when heading out for a drive. That is why comfort, ease of movement, and durability are key. 

THE NAME SEEKS TO PAY HOMAGE TO EIGHT DRIVERS OF THE 1970s THAT MARKED THE HISTORY OF MOTORSPORT WITH CHARISMA AND STYLE.

8JS' inspiration originates from the most glamorous era of motor-racing.

WE LOVE IT BECAUSE There are plenty of companies that produce clothing inspired by the ‘Golden Era’ of racing, but few have as much credibility as 8Js – a family-run company owned by Sacha Prost, son of F1 legend Alain… A clue to the company ethos can be found in the name: the ‘Js’ represent the first names of Golden Era luminaries, such as Jo, Jack, Jim, James and Jochen. Meanwhile, the ‘8’ represents “the infinity in remembrance of those astonishing years” – something we at Classic Driver are definitely keen to promote.
