Parkas are all over the north east indie set, as are fucking baseball team snapbacks, not that any of them would be able to tell you what the teams actually played or anything about the players…

It gets annoying when you're trying to sell someone a £700 suit, and someone from the floor below has somehow found their way up to my floor with a £3 primark hat. Guess who thinks they deserve more attention.

Barbour jackets were originally made for the working class - more particularly the dockers and fisherman, and farmers. Probably the 'plebs' of the 'backwater' towns you mean. Mong.

Must have hit a nerve. A Barbour wearer perhaps? I’m sure then that John Barbour did not have this chap in mind when designing quilted jackets for his ‘British lifestyle’ brand.

The was a documentary on Newcastle that had a section on Barbour (will try and find). Defo made as workwear, but you can't exclusively say working class. Shooting jackets etc worn by the gentry manz innit.
