Barbour jackets offer style and warmth this winter
John Norris of Penrith, one of the UK's leading retailers for country clothing, shooting accessories and fishing tackle, is stocking the stylish new collection of warm-wearing quilted Barbour jackets.
The retailer has 10 different Barbour jackets to choose from, five for men and five for women. Each high quality garment has been designed and manufactured to offer modern style and comfort with the classic practical features that have made the brand one of the most sought-after in the outdoor clothing world.
Barbour has a rich history that has seen its weatherproof clothing worn by British soldiers during both World Wars; plus, the firm holds three Royal Warrants for Prince Charles, the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth II. It has also been a popular choice among celebrities ranging from Hollywood movies stars (Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, Steve McQueen) to TV personalities (Holly Willoughby, Alexa Chung).
These famous advocates certainly vouch for the style of the jackets, while the brand's popularity among sailors, fishermen, farmers, dockers and shooting enthusiasts is evidence of the practical properties each Barbour product provides.
Among the men's quilted Barbour jackets available from John Norris are the Barbour Chelsea Rib Neck, Barbour Liddesdale, Barbour Powell Polarquilt, Barbour Eynsford and the Barbour Cheviot Sporting. Meanwhile, women's jackets include the Barbour Cavalry Polarquilt, Barbour Eskdale Quilted, Barbour Morris Quilt, Barbour Liddesdale Polarquilt and the Barbour Shaped Liddesdale Quilt.
"The new autumn/winter collection from Barbour is one of our biggest sellers and there are some fantastic quilted jackets available this year," a spokesperson for John Norris said. "Formed in 1894, Barbour is now a fifth-generation family business that manufacturers over 3,000 jackets every week. Each one is lovingly created to provide the style and warmth you'll need if you're going shooting, fishing or taking part in any other outdoor pursuit this winter."
In addition to its quilted jacket collection, Barbour makes a number of waxed jackets, breeks, fleeces, gloves, headwear, scarves, trousers, shirts, sweaters and other country clothing products designed specifically for people who love the outdoors.
