Barbour waxed cotton jackets and coats hardly need an introduction. Anyone who has spent any time in the countryside or on a shooting range is familiar with them. Since the turn of the century, they have been the quintessential country jackets. Barbour's traditional standards of quality and specification are unique. The fabric is woven from the finest 100% long staple cotton, treated with special oils and wax to ensure it gives excellent weather-proofness. The construction and features that come from a century's experience are still carefully tailored by their skilled staff in South Shields. Available in the more recent Sylkoil "Classic" Finish or the Traditional Barbour Thornproof Wax Cotton, both medium and heavyweight, it can be re-proofed and repaired to give enduring service.
