Barbour is renowned for its ability to create products that can help you battle the elements. Since 1894 they have been making products that are both durable and functional. It started with clothing mariners against the harsh conditions of the North Sea, and it is their nautical heritage that has inspired their new range, 'Stormforce'. Their autumn/winter collection utilises innovative production techniques to protect against upcoming colder conditions. Key features include technical trims, waterproof zips details, hood detailing and above all, insulation and warmth.
One of the key pieces is the 'Thermo Overshirt' (pictured above). It features double patch chest pockets and is bang on-trend for those looking for a military style that can be easily layered.
Fleece is an essential material to utilise across outerwear products due to its insulation properties. We see Barbour use it across a lot of their products including the 'Gustnado Jacket', and the 'Switun Quilt'. The latter built with an inner fleece lining.
The 'Gustnado Jacket' is a snorkel-hooded parka. It comes with a detachable fur trim collar and built-in fleece-lined pockets to keep your hands warm — a godsend when the temperature plummets. With a front zip fastening and studded front storm guard, the jacket is completed with an autumnal hue of Agave Green.
