Lunchtime buy: Barbour red international polar quilt jacket

Lunchtime buy: Barbour red international polar quilt jacket

After our Guy Fawkes celebrations here in Britain at the weekend and spending the past few evenings gathered in fields watching fireworks or huddled around bonfires, our minds are still set on outdoor fun.

And following on from the uniquely British story of the 5th of November, today’s lunchtime buy is another British classic: the Barbour jacket.

Launched in 1894 by John Barbour, who started selling oilskins in the port of South Shields, the company has grown into a 4th generation business and today is a byword for durable, heritage styling.

Thanks to Barbour, nothing is now more British than a waxed, quilted jacket, and this red number gives a modern pop of colour to the traditional style so you’ll be bright and warm whilst donning the distinct stamp of the ultimate British classic.

Now, time to get planning some more autumnal outdoor escapades, we think!

Barbour Red International Polar Quilt Jacket, £169, available at my-wardrobe.
