John Barbour, founded J.Barbour and Sons Ltd in South Shields, North of England, in 1894 and started out as an importer of oil cloth. Barbour was the originator of waxed cotton motorcycle suits and jackets and are synonymous with high quality waxed and quilted outdoor jackets and apparel.
For Barbour fans, a true vintage Barbour Solway Zipper wax cotton jacket with 2 Royal Warrants, which dates this jacket to the 1980s. Made In England from English fabric, this jacket has a great patina and is still going strong.
First available in 1960, the Solway zipper jacket was one of Barbour's flagship models in its day, launched as the heaviest and strongest Olive Thornproof for prolonged wear. Originally popular for shooting and hard wearing country pursuits, featuring the useful large inside game pocket. It was the first country sporting garment to include the iconic Barbour ring pull.
Used and in good vintage condition, with signs of wear, abrasion throughout. The jacket has uneven discoloration with crease marks throughout due to the wear of the waxed shell. The lower lining has some significant darkening with a rip to lining just above the right hem (when worn). Not quite perfect but a classic piece of kit ready for a new home.
