Many people achieve their goal of finding their outfit but there is one area that leaves many people stumped; getting a jacket that will keep you warm while at the same time looking fashionable, smart and sexy, particularly for those of you who are ‘outdoors’ people. This gap in the wardrobe can be a big problem when the weather gets horrid and cold and just won’t let up. This is where Barbour coats come in.
Barbour was founded in Scotland in the late 19th century and has since grown to become one of the most well-known and well-loved fashion brands in the United Kingdom and Europe. As English as tea and toast, Barbour jackets are guaranteed to give you style while offering an unrivalled level of warmth and comfort.
Barbour has fans from a wide range of backgrounds from the Royal Family to celebrities, all of which know the benefits of owning a Barbour Jacket. Due to the practicability and durability offered by these jackets, those who have ever owned a Barbour jacket find themselves hooked for life.
There are said to be some Barbour coats so old that they have been passed down through 2 or more generations yet they remain in good condition ( a matter on which I’m not entirely convinced, though). This is especially so for the wax jackets. They can be kept fresh and practical by re-waxing them every year or so depending on how often you use them and in what conditions.
The Barbour fashion design team always strives to keep up with changes in the fashion industry by incorporating new designs into these jackets. In fact, there are several collections from which you can choose a Barbour jacket. These include the ‘Classic Collection’ which are jackets in the style of the 1980s and before, the ‘Heritage Collection’ and the ‘Modern Collection’.
