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.

Ewen McGregor and Charlie Boorman are both pictured wearing Belstaff jackets in this photo. The pair teamed up for the hit tv series Long Way Down and Long Way Round.  Wearing Belstaff jackets, the pair ventured off on their motorcycles in exhausting conditions to produce a quality tv programme which is now available to download from online stockists.
