The Barbour Tradition


I am all for following tradition.
Especially when it comes with great looks and practicality.

The Barbour wax jacket has been a British tradition for over 100 years. This all-round weather-proof jacket, mostly made of wax cotton, is a keeper. It might not make the top ten lists of wardrobe essentials but if you live in a climate with plenty of weather, it is a must.

Once upon a time the Barbour jacket was unitary in style and worn only in the great British outdoors. Forget that, it is a fantastic weekend jacket.

When it’s pelting down, I’m all for the raincoat, but when it is a combination of wind, chill and maybe rain this is my go-to. And plus I do love anything khaki/olive green and it is high time I swapped the field jacket about.

Barbour is the traditional go-to when it comes to this style of jacket and it has been given a very cute makeover by Alexa Chung.

The two pictured above are tempting me but also this one from Madewell, completely adorable and easier on the budget.

It’s the weekend; take your pick. xv

p.s loving this for all my weekend goodies too.

Being in the states all my life, I’d never even heard of this brand but I know I’ve seen this beautiful style somewhere. How elegant of a rain coat!
