Lets Talk Barbour.

Hello there lovelies!
Its that time of year where payday is coming around once again and I'm beginning to gather myself and think forward to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe....which seems a little moronic considering the beautiful weather today. But I cant help but get myself organised.

I make no secret of my love of A/W fashion.
I love layering, getting all snuggly....and generally theres more clothes to work with!

Now I'm currently on the hunt for an A/W coat. 
The problem being that I am incredibly picky when it comes to choosing such an item.
I like my coats to have an element of longevity, something I can pull out for a couple of years after their purchase, and of course something fashionable.
I own a quilted jacket which I got from an equestrian seller over Ebay.
Last year this got a lot of wear which makes me consider purchasing a Barbour jacket.
But which style? Here are some different Barbour jackets that have made the shortlist.

1. Barbour Vintage Polarquilt Black Jacket
2.  Purple Barbour Jacket

It goes without saying that Barbour jackets are pricey but there are a lot of cheaper alternatives available on the high street. I was particularly interested in the purple number....but it has disapperared in the sale. There are a few Barbour coats in the sale here though. Personally the pink Barbour doesnt float my boat but it may for someone else.

Have you got Autumn/Winter coat hunting yet?

  7. I love my quilted jacket - my preference is no.3, I just like them in black.

  8. I have a Barbour International wax jacket and although it set me back quite a few pennies, I absolutely love it. I wear it for most of autumn/spring then all of winter. I think it's worth the money considering the wear you get out of it. Let us know which one you decide on!
