Our US colleague Anthony calls his Barbour jacket the best thing he bought in the past decade. ‘It has basically served as my go-to jacket for two and a half seasons every year’, he writes. ‘Very roughly, that totals some 2,280 days of wear over the last ten years (assuming each season accounts for about 91 days a year), if you’re looking for some hard data to justify the price’.
Anthony favours the Bedale, but we spotted the Ashby (which has a slightly trimmer cut) on sale for £155 (down from £209). Pair it with a baseball cap to channel a Roy sibling.
