barbour beaufort 1 barbour beaufort 2 img_2236_1 i've been searching for a true vintage BARBOUR jacket for a long long time & finally i made it through the wilderness ... made with waxed egyptian cotton for outdoorsy rain-proofing purpose, this beaufort field jacket in c38 size is awesome wicked - light. beat. full of stress tears or creases. & apparently been in many adventures. founded in 1894 & surged in popularity in the 80’s, the barbour brand holds three royal warrants ( her majesty the queen, the duke of edinburgh, & the prince of wales ). since the wax does wear out in time so re-waxing with a tin of wax is inevitable. it’s recommended that the jacket to be re-waxed once a year but i won't bother. many loyal fans keep their barbour waxed jackets for years, even decades, & the wear-and-tear on the garment can be addressed by barbour’s repair service, which patches & reinforces jackets. now that's some genuine english tradition & heritage
