Barbour manufacture a complete range of quality jackets, which range from their traditional and popular entirely
wax jackets for their quilted heritage coats. Barbour clothes are an esteemed and popular brand because of its consistent quality. Barbour has branched from its original country-wear roots and now stocks many different outdoor and fashion styles, although it never strays looking at the country and heritage branding. Barbour's functional yet fashionable approach may be the main source of its longevity as a brand.
One of the large variety of Barbour outerwear, quilted jackets seem to be hogging the limelight at the moment. The Barbour quilted jacket is known for its quality, practicality and style - its finely sewn diamond quilts provide good insulation for the colder months. The Barbour quilted jackets can be found in many different colours and fashoins, some will have contemporary chest pockets yet others have hand warmer pockets slightly lower down (they generally have extra padding to keep your hands warm during winter). A few of the jackets have cord collars to contrast with all the quilted diamonds, and every one of the jackets have a fully-quilted polyamide lining and 100% polyester wadding for extra warmth and insulation.
Quilted jackets are hitting high-street stores as they have grown to be quite popular, and designer brands like Barbour also have to manage cheaper high-street
imitations. The majority of the time these imitation pieces do not have the standard that the more expensive brands consistently supply. Instead of buying a cheap imitation piece that will only last you one season, it's easier to buy a quality coat, which might be higher priced, and often will last you several seasons - which makes it a more economical choice in the long run.
If you were to compare a Barbour quilted jacket to some high-street imitation, you'd see the alteration in quality straight away, and never to mention
the standard insulation that high-street brands rarely provide. A quality quilted jacket could have seamless stitching with simply no frayed edges, all stitching should look clean and neat. You'll also have a thick lining inside the quality coat, also it shouldn't be sewn too tightly for the jacket, so you have a lot of room for manoeuvre and room to produce alterations should you need to. Another manifestation
of a top quality jacket is the stitching across the pockets. Pockets on Barbour jackets are a fundamental element of the coat, they're usually sewn into the jacket and given extra padding for warmth and insulation - on cheaper imitations the pockets will probably be sewn to the outside of the coat haphazardly, usually with a piece of thin and flimsy material. Barbour's timeless precision and quality will provide you with a coat or jacket that's the perfect investment for future warmth.
Choose a Barbour jacket or coat if you're looking for a piece which will last you, which is functional for the cold months but also very fashionable. It may look expensive but when you think about the purchase price and how long it'll last you, you may invariably view it is really a less expensive choice than a high-street imitation that won't last you as long, meaning
you need to buy more as time passes, and receive less quality.
