I Love 1988

Barbour Jacket

Barbour Jackets

A countryside necessity became a town accessory. Barbour (or wax) jackets were all weather garments designed for farmers and were completely unnecessary for people who got out of their car and went straight into the office.

Barbour jackets had a strange smell about them, especially if you didn't wax them often enough.
