Barbour - Men's Jackets - Country ClothingThere are a few items of clothing that are quintessentially redolent of the English Countryside and the Barbour Jacket is one of them. Barbour has been setting the standard since 1894. Barbour waxed jackets are stylish in an understated manner, immensely practical, comfortable and comfortingly traditional in appearance and feel.
Fitting over a smart business suit as readily as they slip on over a sweater for walking the dog. Barbour jackets are owned and worn by people from all walks of life and of all kinds of lifestyles from farmers to poachers to lawyers to Royalty. They are an investment that lasts for years and like all classic garments will look as stylish in 10 years as they do today, better actually as they gain experience and provenance with you.

The material is made from finest 100% long staple Egyptian Cotton and is treated with special oil and wax to ensure it is totally wind and waterproof. It is available in heavy or medium weight finishes and can easily be reproofed.
I purchased my first Barbour in 1990, have worn it in conditions ranging from Chicago blizzards, Tokyo typhoons, pub crawls through London. I own no other garment that so perfectly fuses sentimental attachment, functionality and timeless style. I intend to be buried in it. - Orvis customer
