Bundle up in Barbour Beacon Quilted Jackets
In terms of the perfect warmth to weight ratio, quilted jackets trump most outerwear options out there. Where billowy down jackets rely on bulk and rain coats lean on light, waterproof shells, the quilted jacket meets somewhere in the middle, seamlessly fusing the two.
Linked closely to the countryside and often the first choice of equestrians, the quilted jacket has more recently enjoyed a return to the limelight within a streetwear capacity. Brands across the board have been reaching for the faithful silhouette to combat temperamental weather without compromising on style. So whether it’s chucking it down outside, gale-force winds, or somewhat mild, this midweight silhouette is suited to the lot.
Not to be biased but we reckon Barbour Beacon’s quilted jackets are particularly special. Not only are they super practical but they’re also peppered with parent company Barbour’s iconic design cues which are equal parts identifiable as they are desirable. Coming in a range of styles and colourways, Barbour Beacon has ticked every box with its latest quilted jacket collection. Read on to take a closer look…
Two top choices from the range are the Barbour Beacon Starling Quilted Jacket in black and the Barbour Beacon Starling Quilted Jacket in olive – twin styles presented in contrasting shades. The latter option feels quintessentially Barbour, it’s whipped up in an earthy green which really feels suited to adventures in the great outdoors. The body of the garment, as you’ve probably already guessed, is completely quilted showcasing a classic diamond pattern throughout. The fill in the jacket’s baffles subtly bulks it up, making it slightly puffier than your standard jacket all while boosting its heat retention capability.
The black iteration is constructed in the exact same manner, boasting the same contemporary hip-length, tonal corduroy collar, easy snap fastening and spacious bellow pockets. The Barbour Beacon logo also features at the bottom half, symbolising the jacket’s origin from the youthful sub-label and the brand’s overall ties to the north east of England, and more specifically, the Beacon Lighthouse in its native South Shields.
Here the Starling Quilted Jackets are layered with the Barbour Berber Fleece Liner and the Barbour Beacon Twill overshirt respectively. Both are available at Aphrodite now.
Certainly no one trick pony, the quilted jacket oozes versatility and can be donned all year round. Therefore, if you were looking for an investment piece you may have just stumbled across a winning style here. In fact, we know you have.
