Barbour has been getting a ton of attention in the blog world over the past few months, and in our opinion the love is well deserved.  We have no idea what has caused the spike in interest, but are happy to contribute to the cause.  Any company that makes great looking items that we could feasibly wear for the rest of our lives is definitely one that deserves heavy praise.  On a recent visit to Sid Mashburn in Atlanta, we were finally able to get hands on with a Barbour jacket we’ve had our eye on for some time now, the Ashby.

Only available in olive with a brown corduroy collar (what else do you really need?), the Ashby is a bit of a modern take on the classic Barbour Bedale.  Though we normally aren’t too keen on reinterpretations of something as timeless as the Bedale, we do like the fact that the Ashby has a bit of a slimmer profile.  If you’ve been thinking about adding a Barbour jacket to your rotation, but have been looking for something that isn’t as loose fitting, the Ashby is definitely for you.  Featuring a 6oz Barbour Sylkoil Wax outer and lined with a classic Barbour Tartan, this jacket may have a more modern cut, but everything about it screams classic Barbour.  Add it to the Christmas list folks, you won’t be disappointed.
