The Pick: The quintessential Barbour jacket

One of Britain's true fashion icons

The Barbour has been synonymous with British heritage for over 120 years, and the weathered waxed jacket is as classic as it comes. Immediately recognisable the world over, the Barbour has become a sort of unofficial uniform for the British gentleman. Purposefully scruffy yet totally iconic, no gentleman’s wardrobe is complete without his own signature Barbour. It feels robust and immediately lived-in, with spacious pockets for hip flasks and Kendal mint cakes while you’re out in the country. If you don’t already own one, you can rest assured that the legendary jacket will become a timeless garment that will stay with you for many years to come.

The medium-weight Bristol is one of their absolute classics; with a subtle tartan lining, corduroy collar and moleskin-lined pockets to keep your hands warm, it can be worn comfortably all year round.
