Barbour Women's Waxed Jackets
Barbour's waxed jackets are iconic fashion statements to the extent that the Barbour name has become synonymous with the style. Indeed it was the innovative John Barbour who made and marketed the first waxed cotton clothing in the UK and 120 years later the brand is still revered across the world. Here at Old Byre Showroom you can choose from a wonderful range of women's Barbour waxed jackets.
Wax cotton was first used for ship's sails. Sailors had realised that wet sails were more efficient than dry ones and began to oil their sailcloth to achieve superior results. John Barbour was working in the Northeast of England and began using oiled or waxed cotton to fashion clothing for fisherman, sailors and shipyard workers and then began serving the agricultural community too. The durable, waterproof waxed cotton proved to be immensely popular with those who especially needed and appreciated the protection.
Barbour waxed jackets are the original and best waxed jackets available and feature the perfect balance of quality, durability and style. Barbour jackets are still handmade in the UK and are the perfect choice for the outdoor lifestyle. We are proud to showcase women's Barbour waxed jackets here at Old Byre Showroom.
Our collection of Barbour ladies wax jackets includes black, navy, fern, bark and olive styles including the legendary Beadnell jackets with every piece boasting the cut, quality and style that you would expect from Barbour. Don't forget to add Barbour Original Wax Thornproof Dressing to your order as the jackets will require redressing to lengthen their life and to remain resistant to the elements over time.
They say that class is permanent and so it is with these timeless triumphs that suit all ages and lifestyles. The Barbour waxed jacket is a true design classic that would grace any wardrobe.
