My Barbour jacket definitely makes my 'best purchases ever' list. It also makes my 'closet staple list', my 'favorite pieces' list, shall I go on? Needless to say, I. Love. My. Barbour. Jacket. I have the classic Beadnell in olive but also have the Land Rover x Barbour jacket in sage (sold out). I love them both. They're timeless, casual, but also have a quiet elegance about them.
Barbour is not an inexpensive brand, but for good reason. Their pieces are meticulously made and are meant to last a lifetime. If you are in the market for a Barbour jacket and it is your first one, my suggestion is to go with the Barbour Beadnell in olive. This is the classic jacket that you see on pretty much everyone. The olive color is the true classic Barbour 'green' and the classic plaid only comes with the olive.
However, if you aren't ready to take the $400+ plunge, there are still some other great options that are well under that hefty price tag! With spring just around the corner (the groundhog said so!!), I've pulled some of my favorites that seem to be the most comparable. Scroll through the above widget to check them out!
