Here’s a nice little video that we picked up over on Youtube (from Vlogaboo) highlighting the new Barbour Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection. Whether you are wanting quilted, leather, waxed or a motorcycle inspired jacket, they have them all. This Winter could be a season to look forward to
Festival season is upon us. The obligitory rain is being forecasted for the next few months so the helpful people over on the Official Barbour site have put together a handy little guide for festival goers. Good little tips like taking small packets of tissues in plastic wrappers in case you are found wanting loo roll in those horrible portaloo’s could prove invaluable for even the hardiest festival fan. Strangely enough they don’t actually recommend taking a Barbour jacket to stay dry. A bit of self promotion has been missed there! Find more hints and tips by reading the full article here
The Barbour Tokihito Sporting Jacket is a gorgeous piece of clothing from the Barbour x Tokihito collaboration. If you don’t believe us, head on over to the Yinnyang blog and read the review and stunning photographs by Niran and Ernest. A lot of people are reluctant to buy a quilted Barbour jacket because of the high demand for them in recent years which Niran admits himself. He then goes on to give reasons why he has fallen in love with the jacket since wearing it. We are sure you’ll like their post and enjoy reading the rest of their blog which is really well designed and informative. Enjoy!
The Barbour Autumn/Winter 2011 collection has now hit the shelves and we are as excited as we ever have been about the release of a Barbour collection. This season Barbour have produced a large range of functional clothing for the cold winter months. As well as the usual Barbour jackets that they are so well known for, this year their stylish knitwear items are certain to be a hit with consumers and Barbour fans. Quality Marino wool has been used to craft some of the jumpers that they have produced alongside 7 guage wool mixes. This season we seem to be seeing a lot of hunting patches on the shoulders and elbow patches of items across various designer brands. Barbour have used a quality suede material to produce some of the patches.
As usual we have a large selection of Barbour jackets in this collection. They vary in style and we will be bringing individual coats and jackets in seperate posts over the following weeks. Some take their inspiration from the Barbour motorcycle heritage whilst others take more of an outwearwear theme, which Barbour became famous for. In particular the Barbour Beall jacket (picture below) is a new style that they have created for the AW11 collection. A quilted jacket with roots steeped in that of mens workwear and industrial clothing, yet retaining a sense of style that would look perfect out and about in town.
As we get deeper into the Winter, the Barbour wellingtons are going to be in demand. They sit alongside Hunter Wellingtons as the must-have designer wellies for men and women.
So in conclusion we like the new Autumn Winter collection and are going to be featuring posts on individual products in the future. Tell us your thoughts in the comments box below on the new collectionnd how you rate it against collections of years gone by
