Vintage Barbour Jacket

There is nothing more comfortable than that old jacket you have had for years stuck in the back of your wardrobe, that warm feeling when you put it on which is like an old friend putting his arm around you and given you a warm reassuring hug. When that jacket is doing the same great job that it has been doing since the first time you put it on is more the better, you now change that friend to a reliable old friend with a warm hug.

Now there are not many jackets out there that give you that feeling quite like an old Barbour, when the wax or oil skin cotton fabric is truly worn in and it has started to take the shape of your body and you can smell a hundred good time coming out of the fabric.

It is these kind of jackets which after a hard life on the farm or just in the country get given away to second shops which in turn sell them on to young hip adults which will wear them in another way taking them from party to party getting the same kind of use out of them as the country folk did. Apart from instead if it being driving rain hitting you on a windy field it is the damp wall of a warehouse party that you need protecting from.

Not many jackets can bridge the gap between to totally different worlds as an Vintage Barbour can. It doesn't look out of place in both worlds even though they are both socially and historically so different. It is the hard wearing nature of the fabric and the subtleness of the design which makes it so versatile, and that underlying British ness of the whole thing that attracts all walks of life.

Another great thing about owning an old Vintage Barbour jacket is that you know at any point you can send it back up to the north of England to have any part of it either restored or replaced and in such a way that it sits perfectly with the original parts of the jacket. Some times it is nice to leave the out side of the jacket the same no matter how tatty it is and just get the whole of the insides replaced. That way you retain the vintage feel of the jacket but you get the warmth and fresh feeling of a new jacket.

This is what makes a Vintage Barbour Jacket almost perfect.
