"A worn jacket... means a well lived life..." Queen Elizabeth II
Why are Barbour jackets so wonderful?
With its casual appearance, its waxed cotton shell that is water resistant, it has become a staple in the English gentleman's wardrobe. Barbour jackets don't just represent the British country look but they are great for any kind of outdoorsman who wants to hunt, fish, or just not afraid of the elements.
Are Barbour coats worth the money?
If you want a casual companion for your jeans, chinos, corduroys, sweaters, and cardigans, the Barbour waxed jacket is definitely worth it. Gentleman's Gazette
