Sporting Wax Quilt Jacket by Barbour

On November 22, 2011, in Mens, Outerwear, by Ryan & Ben

We love it when an established brand isn’t afraid to bring in someone from outside of their immediate circle to create a few collaboration pieces from time to time.  Not too long ago, Barbour did just that with Japanese designer Tokihito Yoshida.  Known for creating very technical and functional articles, Yoshida has turned out to be a great asset to the Barbour brand.  Now in it’s fifth season, the Beacon Heritage Collection designed by Yoshida is full of pieces that we love.  This season, our absolute favorite is the Sporting Wax Quilt Jacket ($499).

Available in limited quantities, the Sporting Wax Quilt Jacket may look quite similar to a number of jackets in the Barbour line, but if you look a little deeper you will notice a few details that definitely set it apart.   The first thing you will notice when you try this jacket on is the slim fit, as it is far more trim than most pieces in the Barbour line, you will probably find yourself wanting to size up.  Once you get past the cut, you will notice that instead of the traditional diamond quilting pattern that adorns many Barbour products, this jacket features vertical quilting.  While the change is small, it gives the coat a far different look.  With suede accents and a cotton tartan lining, this jacket is just as well suited for a weekday in the city as it is a weekend in the country.  We would happily wear it either place.
