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.
