Pictures of Barbour’s fall/winter collections are now showing up online through its retail partners – aside from the classic pieces and a few of the new designs, most of it is very ho hum or generic and it feels like the design teams forgot what makes Barbour Barbour. At first glance, some of the knitwear [...]

Pairing Up Barbour Jackets

From the current winter issue of Men’s Precious. I like the emphasis on complementary tones with small pops of color, my favorite being the unexpected polka dot scarf paired with International jacket. On a related note, Barbour has updated its website for the SS11 collection, though I don’t think there is anything too noteworthy aside [...]

Knit Gloves from Barbour

If you’re looking to pick up a pair of sturdy and basic knit gloves this winter, check out the ones from Barbour. While not soft, the wool that Barbour uses is heavy and thick, and they’re something that you’d expect to find issued to the military.

The Barbour Ursula Jacket

I had not heard news of this until now, but it looks like Barbour is releasing a reproduction of the Ursula jacket used by submariners during WW2.
