Vintage Barbour A98 Solway Zipper Brown Wax Jacket Faux Fur Liner Made In UK XL
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 a Barbour branded YKK aluminium front zip and a popper detachable A295 faux fur liner. Made In England from English fabric.
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 fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration/ some marks throughout. The belt loops have previously been cut off and there is no belt with this jacket.
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, which in this case is also quite musty.
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.
