Here’s something odd. End is having a 25% off sale at the moment, as mentioned yesterday, but they don’t have Barbour listed in their navigation bar. The brand will show up, however, if you search for it manually, and doing so will yield some pretty good deals. With the checkout code SS14PREVIEW, waxed cotton jackets start at $199 and nylon quilted jackets start at $100.
Some notable models:
- Ashby and Bristol: Barbour’s two most famous models are Bedale and Beaufort - both styled similarly, but with the Bedale being the shorter of the two. Both fit kind of full, however, so if you want a contemporary fit, you either have to size down or get the Ashby and Bristol. The Ashby (which comes in navy and olive) is a slimmer version of the Bedale, while the Bristol (which comes in olive, black, and navy) is a slimmer version of the Beaufort.
- Japanese Bedale: Another slim fit version of the Bedale. Comes in waxed and non-waxed versions, as well as something Barbour calls their “cotton Vachettas.”
Just picked up an Ashby. Act fast.
