Quilted beauties from Barbour

Coming from a lovely and sunny beach weekend getaway, I'm now greeted with rain back here in the Metro. Nevertheless, it's the perfect time for some layering and putting on a jacket, so I'm not really complaining. But I'm fancying some quilts right now.

Though they're meant for temperatures much cooler than where I am right now, I'm liking these quilted jackets from Barbour. They're classics and there's no topping that, much like this one below:

J. Barbour & Sons have been producing such classic beauties along with other pieces of clothing since 1894. While the clothes are primarily meant for country living, there's no stopping city folks from donning them as well because they're as stylish enough as they are functional. The British brand, after all, is known for its high quality, stylish, and practical clothing.

Despite the brand's classic bearing, their quilted jackets are also available online. I've picked a few here from Aston Bourne, including the one above:

The Barbour Quilted Hardwick Jacket in navy. I find this piece really slick, reminding me of a trench or a military coat.

The Barbour Bardon Quilted Jacket in navy. I love how the pockets and the flaps are placed. It's a modern take on a classic.

I've always lamented at why most stuff aren't made the way they used to be made anymore, but thankfully Barbour is staying true to its roots even as it constantly adapts to modern times. Having been in business for more than a century could only mean that these guys are clearly doing it right.
