I have spoken numerous times of my involvement and passion in country sports and with that, you have to have practical, stylish and extremely robust and well made clothing. The reason Barbour is such an iconic brand is that they are the pinnacle of their game.
Not only are they made up in the good old North East of England (Jarrow), their sporting line of products go on and on. You’ll often see people wearing 20yr old waxed jackets because they just last forever. I also prefer the mens coats over the ladies as I love the oversized masculine look.
I have my eye on the beautiful Winter Durham jacket but I am holding out for a Barbour Land Rover Tarras bag and a Carraw Waxed Jacket for Mr Tramp from the collaboration that I featured HERE.
Sporting and countrywear has been at the heart of the Barbour brand for 120 years. Barbour’s sporting collection focuses on innovation and understated style in a wardrobe of clothes from jackets to knitwear, shirts, footwear and accessories for the active sports person. Countrywear is dedicated to those who live, work or just enjoy country life. It’s Barbour at its practical and stylish best.
Technical innovation and understated style combine in this season’s Sporting collection. Knits, shirts and trousers feature alongside a choice of jackets from early season to cold winter days. All jackets are designed with full movement for unrestrictive swing and an exclusive “Barbour Tech” waterproof membrane.
Men’s Shooting Collection
For early season, the Darley jacket is ultra lightweight, waterproof and machine washable. Microfleece handwarmer pocket, retainers for cartridge pockets, spandex cuffs and a suede microfibre inside collar add comfort and provide protection.
For mid season, the Swainby is a lightweight jacket with a polar fleece lining for extra warmth. Waterproof zips add ultimate protection to the body. A good all round, versatile shooting jacket is the Brandsdale. Lightweight but warm, the outer fabric of 98% polyamide and 2% elastane provides both strength and stretch properties. Waterproof with large cartridge pockets and a detachable hood, this jacket won’t let you down whatever the weather.
The Garrowby is rugged and robust. Made from 52% polyamide and 48% Cordura, this jacket has a soft feel and is very comfortable to wear yet provides maximum strength and durability for a day in the field. With micro fleece hand warmer and cartridge pocket retainer flaps, the Garrowby provides full movement for unrestricted swing.
For those who prefer tweed to shoot in, the Fellmoor jacket is warm and stylish. In a 100% lambswool, the Fellmoor has washable leather detailing on the collar and cartridge pockets giving it the added bonus of being machine washable. Complementing the jacket is the matching Fellmoor waistcoat and breeks for a very smart and sophisticated outfit.
Knitwear is practical and comfortable to wear. The Fellan Sports Half Zip in a 100% lambswool has double shoulder patches and a waterproof lining so can be worn as an outerwear piece if required.
Women’s Shooting Collection
The Bishopdale jacket, designed for early season shooting, is ultra lightweight, with articulated sleeves, spandex cuffs with thumb loop, handwarmer and cartridge pockets and a very stylish Alcantara trim throughout.
The ladies tweed Dentdale jacket in a beautiful light olive and rustic tweed is made from luxurious wool with leather trims. Waterproof with articulated sleeves and large cartridge pockets, it is both warm and elegant.
