AW21 Barbour x Noah Jackets

Barbour noah bedale jacketThe third iteration of this collaboration, Barbour has launched its Autumn Winter 21 collection with New York label, Noah. This season the range includes six different jackets that are based on the traditional Barbour Bedale and Beaufort styles - both of which were first introduced in the early 1980s. These classic designs have been reimagined in new vibrant fabrications to create a collection that is both timeless and modern.

The jackets have been crafted from two distinct fabrics, both made in the UK – a dry wax and a heavy wool. The Bedale jackets are made in a dry wax and is available in the colourways of wine, nicotine and dark navy - with a contrasting tartan lining.

By contrast the Beaufort designs are made in a heavy wool from Abraham Moon & Sons, a British company established in 1837. Although the shape and cut of the Beaufort design has been retained, the heavy fabric gives the jackets a weighty, robust feel. Available in tan, brown plaid and a pink tone, each design features a contrasting tartan lining. 

The jackets are completed with Barbour’s signature heavy-weight two-way zips, corduroy collars, upper hand warmer pockets and lower bellows pockets. On the exterior. there is a small and subtle Barbour X Noah embroidered logo on the pocket flap - and on the interior you’ll find an oversized embroidered Barbour X Noah logo at the neck.

Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear, Footwear & Accessories, Barbour said: ‘We really enjoyed working alongside the team at NOAH to bring our unique collaborative designs for Autumn Winter to life. There is a natural symbiosis between our two brands that comes from the desire to create timeless products with a contemporary twist and I hope that people will enjoy wearing them for many years to come.”

Brendon Babenzien, Noah Co-Founder and Creative Director said: "Barbour jackets are perfect for what they are designed for, therefore we chose to make only subtle updates this season. We focused on cloth selection for those who may not manage to wear wax comfortably — water resistant dry cloths for those looking to shed rain and wools to combat chilly temperatures. These felt like simple but elegant variations to an already legendary outerwear piece.”

TheChicGeek says, "The Barbour jacket is the Range Rover of the coat world and as such is one of the UK's greatest clothing exports. Who wouldn't want a pink one?!"
