Barbour’s New Look
The ongoing Barbour x Tokito collaboration deposited a new crop of goods at Opening Ceremony this weekend, and it’s not a moment to soon.
This wax quilt jacket caught our eye now that our local climate has switched from “Indian summer” to “Shackleton-esque.” It’s the same waxed cotton that Barbour built their empire on, but it’s a lot trimmer than their flagship items. More importantly, the quilted vibe takes it into equestrian territory, pushing the heritage look just outside of its comfort zone.
And, most important of all, it’s really warm. It’s cut high, so you’ll want to start stockpiling long underwear now…but if you can get through the winter without a plastic parka, it’ll be worth it.
