The Classic Beaufort is a waxed jacket from Barbour in mediumweight 6oz Barbour sylkoil fabric, with full width rear game or cartridge pocket with side zips.
First came the Original jackets. These were made from 4oz waxed cotton, initially in sage green and then in navy, black and rustic brown too. Then after the turn of the century, Barbour realised that some people liked their jackets best when they looked as though they had already owned them for years. So they started making the Classic range in slightly heavier 6oz sylkoil.
These jackets were made in olive green (a brownish green, as opposed to the earlier bluish sage green). To give the jackets a slightly distressed look they put the fabric through one fewer waxing procedure – hence the Classic was born. No longer did our customers have to drive over their new jackets with their tractors, to make them look as though they had owned them for years.
The Barbour Classic Beaufort jacket has a corduroy collar which is studded to fit Barbour's optional hoods, which are also listed on this web site. The corduroy collar also works well with the pewter wildlife badges in our gifts section.
