Barbour are known throughout the world for their outerwear and in particular their range of jackets. What is often overlooked is their range of quality accessories to compliment your outfit and Barbour have proven in recent seasons that they are able to craft some functional bags which exude style.
Enter the Barbour Explorer bag which is a full leather grain travel bag. Made from a durable leather outer material, this premium bag is a great piece for the man on the move. Featuring an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap and 2 carry handles, the useful Explorer bag is lined internally with the iconic Barbour tartan lining. This is a bag that can be used all year round and is ideal for someone who travels a lot, be it for work or pleasure. The Explorer has been released once more for the Spring Summer 2014 season and has been re-stocked at Aphrodite1994 where it has previously sold out priced at £280.00.
It’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.
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

In The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt is seen wearing a Belstaff Panther Jacket. Retailing in the UK around the £980, the stunning vintage looking leather jacket is a small price to pay to be able to pull a woman of Angelina’s calibre!

The Belstaff Shoulder Bag is an eyecatching piece with multiple pockets and leather straps.
