Sophnet x Barbour Bedale Jacket

sophnet-x-barbour

We are not sure how we have missed this one but it seems that Barbour have released a version of the classic Bedale jacket with the masters of minimal design; Sophnet. An eye-catching camouflage lining has been added to this traditional piece. Finished with a beeswax coating to make it water resistant, the jacket has also been given black buttons and a bold golden zipper.  The Bedale was released earlier this month for $599 USD from the official Sophnet website.

Thornproof Tumblr Blog

We have found a little goldmine whilst trawling the Internet for all things Barbour. A great blog hosted over on Tumblr called Thornproof is packed full of inspirational Barbour related photographs and information.  The owner of the site seems to search Tumblr for Barbour inspired photographs but then credits people where credit is due.  So if you are looking for a bit of exposure or were looking to make yourself famous (well maybe not famous but a lot of people will see you), head on over to Thornproof now and send in a photo of yourself in your Barbour

Barbour Bags From AW2013 Collection

Barbour BagsIt’s been a while since we featured any Barbour bags on the blog so we picked out these two gorgeous pieces from Barbour’s Autumn Winter 2013 collection. Presenting the Barbour Notch Explorer and the Barbour Loom Tarras Bag.  Both bags are part of the newly formed Dept B collection at Barbour which has been created this season to commemorate the Department B section of the Barbour factory, famous for the customisation of garments.

The larger Explorer bag is a quality wool/nylon mix travel holdall style bag featuring aniline leather trims. A spacious and luxurious piece, the Explorer would prove to be a great bag to take on your holidays or for someone who travels regularly for their job.

The more compact Loom Tarras bag is more like a bag that you might take to work with you to keep your paperwork in or maybe as part of your hand luggage when travelling.  Finished again in a wool/nylon mix, this satchel style bag again features aniline leather trims and two larger outer pockets.  Throw in to the mix an adjustable strap and you have a great multi functional bag.
