Of unrivalled quality, supreme style and expert craftsmanship, the Barbour Gold Standard collection is the very pinnacle of outerwear.
A celebration of 125 years of Barbour, each piece has been hand cut in their South Shields factory and designed to perfectly contour the shape of the body.
We decided to take a closer look at the new outerwear options from the iconic British brand:
The shortest jacket of the collection, the Supa Transporter offers the heritage and tradition of Barbour, in a modern design.
The cleaner, more subtle design still benefits from Barbour’s trademark attention to detail. A concealed hood sits below a corduroy collar giving both function and comfort. The front pockets have a storm welt to cover along with a ribbed jersey trim for an added luxury feel. A zip-up ‘ticket pocket’ sits just behind the front right pocket; a safe place for your credit or travel card.
The Supa Transporter has taken inspiration from the Barbour Bedale jacket, sporting hidden storm cuffs for those adverse weather spells and a drop trail to keep out that wind. This is a true all-rounder that can deal with the conditions while keeping you looking sharp.
The Supa Corbridge is a celebration of Barbour’s field sports heritage. A sophisticated take on functional design.
The first nod to its heritage is the shoulder overlay and epaulette details – this is for durability and to aid the wearer to carry a bag without it slipping. The high collar keeps out the wind but is lined with Shetland wool and corduroy for a little bit of luxury and extra comfort.
The four pocket design maintains the functional appeal. Inverted box pleats act to increase the storage while maintaining a smarter silhouette. More corduroy lines the cuffs and adds a durable and comfortable finish and there is a removable pile liner for added warmth when the conditions demand it.
The Supa Corbridge, like so many Barbour pieces, manages to straddle the line between fashion and function perfectly, bringing a field sports feel to a modern, versatile piece of outerwear.
Supa Ashby Wax
The Supa Ashby takes it’s design cues from the iconic Bedale Jacket. Designed with a tailored silhouette to perfectly fit the body.
The tailored shape features kick pleats to the back and zipped vents to the back and arms for added comfort and temperature regulation.
When the cold snap hits, there is a removable pile liner, hand warmer pockets and a stand collar to keep out that wind; yet more evidence that Barbour produce fashion that functions.
Supa Commander Wax
Originally designed by Tokihito Yoshida and then worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond, the Supa Commander is arguably the collections most understated and tailored style.
The removable peaked hood featured statement button-up fastening; using the corozo nut, military style buttons. Oiled leather shoulder patches and pockets add a contrast and sophistication. An inner storm bib can be worn across the neck or pulled back to form a revere collar.
Supa Convertible Wax
The quilted option comes in the form of the Supa Convertible Wax. Tailored in shape and with a 3 in 1 convertible hood and collar, this is the perfect town and country jacket.
The 3 in 1 collar converts to a stand down collar with cord liner and the hood is removable. The vertical variegated quilting , which is lightweight and warm, is then coated in the 4oz wax with hydrocarbons for extra waterproofing and longevity. Iconic Barbour design nods come in the form of the handwarmer pockets, the bellow pockets with added quilting and the neat, tailored silhouette that we have come to expect from South Shields’ finest.
The Gold Standard collection also boasts knitwear that will perfectly complement your new jacket. With over 125 years of history, it’s evident from this collection that Barbour have mastered their trade. Combining their heritage and modern techniques to produce outerwear that will stand up to the elements while keeping you looking refined and sophisticated.
