The Barbour SL Camo Bedale Jacket
When you hear the phrase ‘British heritage clothing’, chances are that a Barbour jacket would be one of the first things you’d think of: the brand’s reputation as an outdoor outfitter coupled with their timeless designs and traditional styling gives them an undeniable prestige. In more recent times, however, Barbour have been more willing to experiment with their archival designs, sometimes even handing over the reins to selected collaborators like Japan’s White Mountaineering.
This season is no different, with the brand opting to remix their quintessential waxed jacket, the Bedale, in a whole host of different patterns and finishes. This handsome example sees the Bedale SL – the previously Japan-only slimmed-down version – made up in an archival camouflage pattern, giving it a country-meets-military vibe that somehow makes perfect sense. Still using the brand’s signature waxed cotton fabrics and boasting a contrasting corduroy collar, this is sure to wear in beautifully, making it a perfect investment piece.
The Barbour SL Bedale Jacket in Archive Camo is available instore and online now at Aphrodite Clothing.
