Top 5 Barbour Jackets for This Winter

The days are getting shorter and the temperature is dropping meaning that it is time to start planning your attire for the impending season. So to welcome the new season in style we have put together a list of the top 5 Barbour jackets for men and the top 5 for women!

Top 5 Men’s Barbour Jackets

1. Steve McQueen Rexton

This waxed, multi-pocketed affair evokes nostalgia at every glance. Modeled on the original A7 International Barbour Jacket this winter warmer oozes classic style. Lined with the American flag this heavyweight jacket weighs in at an impressive 8oz and looks every bit as stylish as the jacket Steve McQueen once wore. All in all a vintage jacket that will keep you feeling warm and looking cool this winter!


2. International Burgat

We love the Barbour International Burgat this winter. This motorcycle jacket is short in length and comfortable to wear. Made from waxed cotton to keep you dry in those unpredictable winter conditions this jacket is sharp, stylish and practical: an irresistible combination!



3. International Duke

Our next choice brings in another re-worked classic. Harking back to the classic Barbour Enfield jacket, the International Duke is sure to be a hit this season. Drawing on Barbour’s British heritage, the International Duke is a slim fitting, medium weight jacket perfect for those of you who want a modern cut jacket with references to the history of this classic brand.


4. International Ariel Polarquilt

A top 5 of Barbour jackets would not be complete without the inclusion of a quilted jacket. Experiencing something of a revival in recent years, Barbour’s iconic quilted jacket designs are adored for their style and warmth and the International Ariel Polarquilt is certainly no exception. With fleece inner and distinctive quilted style the Ariel Polarquilt will keep you warm all winter, and next winter for that matter!


5. Lifestyle Stable

To finish off our list of top 5 men’s jackets, the Lifestyle Stable is a quilted wool jacket with a semi-tailored cut. The cut makes for a fitted style to this Herringbone quilted jacket, if warmth is your primary aim this winter, you won’t find a much better Barbour jacket!

Top 5 Ladies’ Barbour Jackets

1. Lifestyle Beaufront

Our first on the top 5 list of Ladies’ Barbour jackets is the heavyweight, Durawax Lifestyle Beaufront. This is a classically styled Barbour coat that will keep you warm and dry, no matter what the conditions. Hand crafted by Barbour, this jacket represents everything that the brand stands for: a durable jacket that is stylish and practical and will last a lifetime!


2. Lifestyle Winter Force Parka

The winter Force Parka is named after the season it is designed for. With a thermal fleece lining this jacket will keep you warm on those colder days. Combine with that the adjustable hood and waist to allow the jacket to accommodate thick winter clothing, this jacket is an absolute must if you intend on staying out in the cold for long periods of time. 


3. Lifestyle Morris Utility

The Barbour Morris Utility ladies’ jacket is an extra special addition to the Barbour range because it features a beautiful William Morris printed lining. The printed lining on this winter jacket looks so impressive that you wont want to zip it closed! It is a good thing then that this jacket is warm, with a moleskin lined collar and waxed outer this stylish ladies’ jacket will protect you from the elements whilst maintaining style as its key feature.


4. Lifestyle Classic Beadnell

Our first choice from the wonderful Barbour ‘Classic’ collection is the Classic Beadnell jacket. This tartan-lined jacket is made from 100% waxed cotton meaning that it is rainproof. If it is the classic British Barbour look you want to achieve this winter, you need look no further than the Classic Beadnell jacket!


5. Cavalry Polarquilt

As with the men’s top 5, we are ending the top 5 ladies’ jackets list with an iconic quilted design from Barbour. Inspired by riding, the Cavalry Polarquilt has a fitted cut that looks modern whilst tipping its hat to Barbour styles of the past. Fleece lined and quilted this jacket is your perfect companion in the cold this winter. For those looking for a striking style this season we can’t recommend the Cavalry Polarquilt enough!
