A HISTORY LESSON: - 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 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.
I received my shirt yesterday and it fits perfectly!
I would just like to say a huge thank you for all your help and co-operation with my enquiries, and my order, which I recieved in next to no time! Also, to actually call me to discuss my enquiry was going above and beyond. I wish all companies were as attentive as yourselves.
Many thanks again for everything.
