Vintage Barbour A831 Classic Beaufort Brown Wax Jacket Made In England XXL
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 wax cotton Barbour Classic Beaufort with a traditional sylkoil finish. Made In England from English fabric. The Beaufort truly is the ultimate, classic all-year-round jacket.
First available in 1983, the Beaufort jacket, is one of Barbour's most iconic waxed jackets, featuring a rear Game Pocket, corduroy collar, two generous bellows pockets and two moleskin hand warmer pockets for everyday practicality. Made with medium-weight Thornproof waxed cotton the Beaufort will provide good protection in all weathers.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration, and some creasing throughout.
Please note wax cotton has a unique smell even when new, and over time for a vintage jacket this can become a stronger more enhanced smell.
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.

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.
