For the F/W 12 season the Barbour Lifestyle collection gets a little technical. Barbour mixes its classic looks with modern Gore-Tex fabric, but still maintains all that classic elegance with wools, waxing and knits. The pieces are meant to take you away from your countryside weekends and be modern enough for your daily city life. Let’s be honest though, there ain’t no wilderness out there on the mean streets of SoHo—other than the stray ridiculously slow walking tourist, there isn’t much else you want to shoot in the face. Throw these jackets on during a crisp fall morning and you will be ready for anything. Even if it’s just to look real good sitting on a bench while sipping your coffee.
