Barbour Waxed Tarras Bag

Barbour Tarras Bag

The waxed Barbour Tarras Bag is a piece of luxury that any man would be proud to be an owner of. Each year Barbour seem to release a version of it because of it’s popularity on the designer menswear market and in particular to connoiseurs of Barbour.  Lined in an eyecatching tartan pattern, this is a decent size bag which will house a 12″ laptop. It is a multi functional bag with the additional pockets on the front to store some essentials when you are on the move.  Finished with a wax coating for protection, this thornproof satchel will be an investment piece that will last you for years and never go out of fashion.

Reasonably priced at £125, you can pick it up from selected official Barbour Stockist stores now

Celebs Wearing Belstaff

Ewen McGregor Belstaff

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.

The individual jackets are actually a new style of jacket commissioned by Belstaff for the programme. Cordura 1500 was the chosen shell to protect the pair in the event of falling from their bikes and is perfect for the variations in temperatures that the pair faced.  The jacket is now commonly known by Belstaff as the ‘Long Way Down jacket
