Vintage 70s Barbour 1 Crest Gamefair Green Wax Jacket Coat Made In England M / L
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 Gamefair wax cotton jacket with 1 Royal Warrant, which dates this jacket to approx the 1970s. Made In England from English fabric, complete with Aero font ring pull zipper. Almost 50 years old and still going strong.
First available in 1960, the Gamefair jacket was originally named the Tropical Thornproof, as it was a lightweight unlined outdoor alternative. It’s design led the foundation for the Border and Bedale jackets, and this particular Gamefair is a later lined version.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, discolouration, creasing and abrasion throughout. There has been a stitch repair to the back left shoulder area of the jacket and there are some holes to the left inner arm and at the front right inner lining. Please see all pictures.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
