Barbour North Jacket
It’s a bit misleading to say that this is a “new” jacket from Barbour; every product that British heritage company produces is neccesarily infused with DNA of John Barbour, who created the eponymous J Barbour & Sons in 1894. As the fortunes of heritage labels have skyrocketed in recent years, few labels have enjoyed such a robust rebirth, while maintaining tangible continuity with their roots, as Barbour. The label hasn’t been resting entirely on it’s famed laurels, and is striking while the iron is hot – the http://freshnessmag.com/2011/01/17/barbour-x-tokihito-yoshida-collection-available/”>Barbour x Tokihito Yoshida collection, and the http://freshnessmag.com/2010/10/06/sophnet-x-barbour-bedale-jacket-soph-tokyo-11th-anniversary-item/”>SOPHNET. x Barbour Bedale Jacket, for example. The strictly in-house designs are also noteworthy, as evidenced by the newly released North Jacket. The jacket is a classic style remixed in a shorter slimmer block, and makes use of seam sealed 2.5 layer technical fabric, and includes a technical hood from Barbour’s AW 2010, and a detachable waist bag which can store the jacket. Fans of nanamica.com/”>Nanamica, which has been emulating this style lately, will appreciate the clean lines and color palette here.
