Posetta Baddog is beside herself with glee: she is now convinced that she is a bone fide celeb. First she gets a full page in Grazia and a mention in Red, and then, today, her first ever press gift. Barbour emailed to very kindly offer her a waxed Barbour dog coat, and she’s been insufferable ever since. (Here she is waiting for her agent to call.)
Although I’m not convinced of the benefit of coats to larger dogs, on delicate whippets and on miniature wire-haired dachshunds with no tummy fur at all like Posetta, they can be extremely useful in winter-y weather. So Posetta has accepted her gift with alacrity. Meanwhile I went on to the Barbour site for a poke around, seeing as how the last contact I had with a Barbour was on a young farmer in the beer tent at a point-to-point in Leicestershire somewhere around 1999.
And goodness, things have changed around there. There was this:
Barbour Ladies Antique Asymmetric Biker Jacket £179.95
And, best of all, this:
Ladies International £229.95Which was apparently inspired by Barbour’s motorcycle history. I do like a jacket with umpteen pockets for all my junk. Very nice indeed.
