The iconic Barbour Bedale jacket, a waxed-canvas, corduroy-collared repeller of rain, mist and chill with a cosy tartan cotton lining, and favoured by many Britons from royalty to pop stars, is a lifetime style investment. It’s classic features include a brass two-way ring-pull zip and studded ‘Stormfly’ front, two large bellows pockets and two moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets, and the traditional corduroy collar with studs for a hidden throat flap. We’d expect nothing less from the same company that essentially invented weatherproofing in the late 1800′s.
