Since the introduction of men’s shirts to the Barbour brand in 1914, these high quality and stylish pieces became a wardrobe staple for the well dressed man about town or country. Designed with style, function and comfort in mind, the Barbour shirts are available in four specific fits to easily fit into your lifestyle. Keep on reading to discover which Barbour shirt works best for you, and see our top picks of each style.
The Relaxed Fit is Barbour’s most generous fit that is designed to enable additional layers to be worn beneath whilst preserving freedom of movement. It is suited to a range of body types, particularly those with a larger build. The Relaxed fit is ideal for country sports or physical work, and therefore the designs and styles often complement a country wardrobe.
The Regular is Barbour’s most versatile fit; it has enough room for more freedom of movement and for additional layers to be worn beneath where appropriate. The Regular fit looks great on all shapes and sizes, and is most similar to the standard shirt fit that you would find on the high street. This style is ideal for work or play, and so there is a wide variety of designs to choose from.
The Tailored Fit is designed to give a more figure hugging silhouette than the relaxed or regular fits, and is favoured by those looking for both comfort and style. The Tailored fit will skim over the shoulders to accentuate the male physique, but still allows a tolerance around the middle and arms for ease of movement. All shirts in the Barbour Shirt Department are cut to a Tailored fit.
The Slim Fit is a streamlined fit designed to flatter and follow the body’s contours. Slim Fit shirts are designed to fit close to the body, therefore are often favoured by slim body types. The Slim Fit is Barbour’s most fashion forward fit, so you’ll find more of their sartorial designs in this fit, including bold or unique patterns and colours that are more suited to casual wear.
