  1. How to style an Ashby jacket 

The Ashby jacket is a Barbour classic. A reimagined version of the brand’s classic equestrian-style Bedale jacket, it’s a stylish jacket that’s great for winter but versatile and timeless enough to be worn all year long. 

Where the Bedale is slightly shorter in length and has a boxy cut, the Ashby was designed with style in mind offering a more modern silhouette. Its tailored fit and longer length present a contemporary feel to the otherwise classic features adapted from the Bedale, such as the signature corduroy collar and iconic Barbour tartan lining.

Although the Ashby doesn’t come with a hood, its Sylkoil waxed cotton finish means it’s naturally resistant to the rain, and it comes complete with studs where a Barbour wax cotton hood and lining can be added if required. 

This stylish jacket is the perfect pairing to several styles, looking just as attractive with regular-fit jeans and a classic Oxford shirt as it would with classic GANT chinos and Tommy Hilfiger suede Chelsea boots.

  1. How to style a Heritage Liddesdale quilted jacket 

Barbour’s Heritage Liddesdale quilted jacket is another style staple. The perfect choice for the fashionable man, it offers classic styling combined with contemporary tailoring for a thoroughly modern twist. 

A slim fit, it conforms to the body, offering a fresh, youthful look. Its diamond quilt design, synonymous with Barbour quilted styles, and its contrasting corduroy collar make it an undisputed Barbour wardrobe staple.

As practical as it is stylish, the coat’s warm wadding and Nylon liner make it a perfect choice for cold and windy days. 

For ultimate style points, pair yours with some joggers like these from Boss, complete with ankle cuffs and a relaxed fit Barbour t-shirt and complete the look with some box fresh sneakers from GANT.

  1.  How to style a Classic Beadnell jacket 

Taking inspiration from Barbour’s iconic men’s Bedale jacket, the brand’s iconic lightweight riding jacket first produced in the 1980s, the Classic Beadnell is an updated version designed for women and cut to a more feminine fit. 

Two versions of the Beadnell are available; the Barbour Beadnell and the Classic Beadnell. Both have the same stylish features and finishes, but the Barbour Beadnell is finished with Thornproof wax, whereas the Classic Beadnell is treated with Sylkoil wax, giving it a matte, as opposed to shiny, finish and an overall softer feel.

The Classic Beadnell comes in Barbour’s signature olive shade and is paired with matching iconic Barbour tartan in a similar hue, offering ultimate style points. Designed to be worn with numerous stylish outfits, the Classic Beadnell is perfect for looking good outdoors, whether negotiating a cold morning commute or discovering the countryside. 

Featuring the brand’s signature corduroy collar and several spacious pockets, the Classic Beadnell marries up style with practicality and offers the wearer a timeless jacket that’s the perfect addition to any stylish outerwear wardrobe. 

When styling your Classic Beadnell, choose colours that complement its stunning olive green shade. Slim-fit blue jeans are the perfect pairing, or opt for Boss white jeans if you’re feeling brave, and pair with a neutral wool jumper like the Lotte in oatmeal from Barbour for a chic look that will transcend trends.

  1. How to style a Powell quilted jacket 

The Barbour Powell quilted jacket is essential if you want to carry your look from the office to post-work drinks or add a layer of style to your off-duty days. Quintessentially Barbour, the Powell is still built for the outdoors, but this Chelsea-style jacket has your stylish interests in mind and is cut to a slim, contemporary shape. 

Adapted from the Barbour Hacking collection, it has a quilted outer to bring warmth to changing seasons and an insulated fleece lining to help you brave the cold without compromising style. 

With the Powell jacket, the devil is in the detail. Its corduroy-lined funnel neck, sturdy stud fastenings, synthetic leather finishings to the collar and cuffs, and stylish two-way zip finished with signature Barbour branding all over help to emphasise this.

The Powell is an outerwear must-have for the discerning gentleman and is suitable for many settings. Pair yours with office wear for your daily commute or with stylish chinos like these from Boss, a GANT half-zip sweatshirt and some stylish shoes to pull together a smart casual look that will carry you from day to night. 

  1. How to style a Lotte long waterproof jacket 

Whether you want a clothing option to keep you dry whilst looking fabulous for the school run or a staple festival jacket to help you weather the storm, then Barbour’s Lotte long waterproof jacket is a perfect choice.

Guaranteed to offer you stylish dressing season after season, Lotte is made from a cotton touch waterproof fabric, perfect for wet-weather dressing should an unexpected storm occur when you’re looking your festival best. And with a removable hood, adjustable waist and a chic extended yoke detail, you’re guaranteed versatile dressing options.
