Having recently been lucky enough to have a tour round the Barbour factory and their archives up in South Shields my love for this iconic outerwear has never been stronger. Further fuel has been aded to my passionate fire for all thing corduroy collar-ed by the arrival of this Heritage Bale jacket at Oi Polloi. It’s the perfect embodiment of Barbour’s utilitarian appeal, a stunning jacket that will look the part on either type of Estate you choose to wear it, country or council. It’s ideal for summer showers being a fair bit lighter than a wax jacket and waterproof and breathable too. It’s even got a handy zip pocket on the sleeve too for stashing your National Trust membership card and/or skins.
