Barbour Ashby Jacket in Olive. Another exemplary offering from this South Shields hailing label; the iconic Barbour Ashby jacket is worthy of a place in every man’s wardrobe. Having been inspired by the brand’s time-honoured ‘Bedale’ jacket – a silhouette originally developed by Dame Margaret Barbour with equestrian pursuits in mind – this updated rendition displays a wealth of practical properties while yielding longer-set sleeves, an extended body and a more streamlined fit in comparison to that of the ‘Bedale’. Stationed with heritage on its side, the Ashby jacket not only features Barbour’s Original Classic Tartan lining throughout, but it’s also built externally using the brand’s signature 6oz Sylkoil waxed cotton, guaranteeing the design’s authentic patina over time, a sleek, matte finish and heightened protection from the elements. Structurally, the garment is crafted with raglan sleeves which aid optimal movement whilst the addition of underarm eyelets also elevate the jacket’s breathing space and ventilation on mild days. A secure zip closure, with a branded storm flap, is neatly employed at the centre of the silhouette, ensuring that body heat is fully retained, and cold drafts are firmly locked out. Storage-wise, the jacket is more than equipped to see you through your routine commutes. In total, the design holds four roomy pockets which are all positioned in convenient areas for handy storage and retrieval of all your essential items. The first set of pockets are angled just below the chest, providing the wearer side-entry access and two comfortable spaces for warming the hands. Below that, two spacious bellow pockets reside with studded flap closures, with one proudly bearing Barbour embroidery. As an extra feature, the jacket is topped off with a corduroy collar, which not only supplies tonal definition to the silhouette and Barbour’s heritage credentials, but an added aspect of versatility too. Depending on your personal preference, the collar can be turned up and secured with a branded throat tab, this will shield against any blustery conditions you encounter and boost the compatibility of the jacket with other items in your wardrobe. Truly a design to be treasured, Barbour’s Ashby jacket is a laudable piece to implement into your rotation this season. With a multitude of functional features, an authentic aesthetic and the ability to be paired with the brand’s optional zip-in thermal liners, this garment is a must-have for the colder months that lie ahead.
