Fashion: Barbour

Given my love for all things classic, I guess I was bound to fall for the iconic Barbour brand here in Europe.  A 5th generation family owned British company, their classic wax jackets are still handsewn and speak of rainy day walks in the countryside with a ruggedly timeless practicality that I've learned to appreciate here in Europe.  In fact, this reserved brand might illicit a bit of a yawn at first glance; until you spy something witty like my current favorite...... the women's Union Jack.....

.... and these ladies would hardly be called a bore....


Barbour shop anyone?

Happy weekend!


  1. two of the first things my husband ever gave me after we were married....muck boots and a barbour utility jacket. Um, not so romantic...but very functional. Could not live without either item now.

    A generous friend just gave us her son's barbour coat for our 4 year old. She will be stylish next winter...praise hand-me-downs! We are used to hand-me-downs from Target (and we like those too.)

  2. i want one SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad!

  3. My cousin recently bought one of these jackets and I have to say they are the most cozy, comfortable things ever. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I reAlly need some barbour in my life. There is a store in Georgetown and I love looking but can't decide on which one I should buy to start my collection.

  5. The Union Jack suits you! And don't you love the way Olivia glammed hers up~I am inspired to loose my hoodie and add a gold belt.

    I love my Barbour, mine is a simple Brown quilted coat with brace findings. Love the Union Jack addition. Stay warm.
