What, you thought a Barbour Jacket was just for Christmas?
If you love your classic Cavalry quilt, iconic Beadnell or effortlessly cool International then the thought of putting your favourite coat to bed for the spring months is probably reducing you to tears. But before you reach for the multipack of tissues, take a hopeful glance over Barbour’s ingenious selection of summer jackets: ideal for these funny in-between months.
Lightweight Barbour Wax Jackets
If you’re best friends with your Beadnell in the winter, then the Summer Dress Tartan collection features all of the rich Barbour heritage with a beautiful range of lightweight designs. For those after a traditional look, the Barbour Iona Wax Jacket features the cord collar, vent back and signature summer dress tartan lining without any of the extra padding you’d expect from the winter editions- just what you need to get your Barbour fix over the summer. If you’re more of an International wearer, then give your trusty International Wax a summery update with the Barbour International Farleigh Jacket. It’s available in a classic black or lighter Opal grey shade for a fresher look during the warmer months. We all know that the Great British Summertime never lives up to its name, so a showerproof coat is an ideal choice for spring summer. The detachable hood of the Barbour Chock Wax Jacket is great for those who love their Barbour and the great outdoors. This shower proof Barbour jacket features the iconic beacon lining from Barbour’s summery Seafarer collection.
Lightweight Barbour Quilted Jackets
Love a Barbour quilt? Us too- that’s why we carry a wide range of summer quilted jackets in our collection so you never have to go a day without your beloved Barbour. The Barbour Summer Liddesdale is a shorter, less padded version of the classic Men’s design with a nipped waist and a colour palette to make the spring flowers jealous. If you’d rather stick to a style that you know and love, then the Barbour Flyweight Cavalry Quilt is a lightweight summer version of the much loved polarquilt edition. With all the same beautiful features of the Cavalry Polarquilt without the fleece lining- no one need ever know you’ve got two hiding in your wardrobe! If you’re a Beadnell wearer in the winter but want to mix it up with a quilt for the warmer weather, then take a look at the Barbour Summer Beadnell. A longer line jacket like its wax counterpart, the Summer Beadnell sneaks in the tartan lining on the cuffs and collar without adding any extra layers around the body.
New Barbour Jackets for 2016
Never ones to be left behind in the style stakes, Barbour’s 2016 range of summer jackets is a wide array of timeless and on-trend pieces that build off the impeccable design features of the core jackets in their collections. The Barbour International Kleeton Quilted Jacket for example has all of the features from Barbour International’s motorcycling heritage but has been given a fresh update for the season in this feminine Amethyst shade. For a little bit of timeless glamour, the Barbour Ewan Trench Coat is the perfect summer cover up from Barbour’s Summer Dress Tartan collection. This gorgeous Barbour Trench, with its lightweight cotton construction, is ideal for taking you through the spring and summer seasons, plus the iconic design means you can wear it year on year. If you want to make a bold statement, then why not go for this bright Barbour Hackamore Parka– available in a vibrant yellow to add little sunshine on grey days!
