The Rise of Barbour Jackets in Urban and Terrace Style

It doesn’t seem a very long time ago that Barbour jackets were perhaps something that was generally only associated with middle aged country gentlemen who spent more time hunting and shooting small furry and feathered creatures than walking the streets of the UK’s biggest cities or mixing it up on the terraces on a Saturday afternoon - but there is no doubt in my mind that the biggest name to emerge in the world or urban clothing and designer terrace wear in winter 2020 so far has to be the Barbour brand.

Perhaps most famous for their quilted Men's and ladies jackets, the uptake of the brand in major high street and online stores that had been more famously connected with urban clothing and terrace fashion has helped propel this classic winter warmer into a brand new audience of fashion lovers and chart territory that it had perhaps never imagined it would take. Both stylish and practical, the Barbour brand is great to keep lads warm on the terraces this winter - and with a more “fitted” range of quilted men’s jackets in the brand’s winter 2010 range that also come with a more stylish waste length fit compared with many of their previous models, the latest quilted men’s jackets such as the Barbour Embleton (which also sports a rather cool high button up neck as seen above) and Barbour Chelsea are now increasingly been worn by fashionable gents of the inner city rather than the countryside.
