I'm thinking about getting one… but just wondered what people thought of them?
I'm gearing myself towards a Barbour Border in navy - Olive/Green makes me think 'farmer'… also, the Bedale and Beaufont make me think 'hipster' - the Border is longer and more defined. I'm also thinking in investing in a hood for it to make it less cuntry-side.
Also, what's good to wear with these jackets for a good look?
Anyway, opinions/advice gratefully received.
(oh, and by the way, if it's any consolation, I do actually live in the sticks - not that I need to justification because I don't want to look like a farmer anyway!)

You're 2 years late, noone will care all over again about you wearing a barbour. However they are exceedingly practical items of clothing and will keep you dry and warm and out of the wind.

i picked up a black waxed barbour transport jacket from tk maxx ages ago for about £50 and absolutely loved it when new but it soon looked rubbish and greying as the wax wore off and i was too lazy to get it rewaxed.
so you need to bear in mind that you will keep nedd to get it rewaxed or whatever.

you can buy wax and do it yourself its very easy.
this thread is very annoying though and I dont have a barbour for what its worth. way too scenester. Becks will have one on next time he's over here.

Atleast he can half dress himself. Most footballers are still into their tight sequin/diamond encrusted t-shirts and generally shit looking jeans and daps

they're nothing special, why don't you just pick up a 2nd hand one for about £30 and see if you like it on yourself. then either buy a new one or get it re-waxed… and i'm with FrIenD that this thread is really annoying..

Sorry to bump a 5 year old thread. Anyone got any sizing tips for a Barbour Bedale? Heard it's a size down job but that advice is from 2013-2014 from Styleforum..
