I do like a bit of Barbour. Hardly surprising, really, given that I am a country girl at heart, but one who is now firmly rooted in the city. And, along with my Hunters, my Barbour serves both sides of my life equally. Here I am in my Barbour International (above), based on Barbour’s original motorcycle jacket
And it’s not just me who loves a bit of modern Barbour. My mother has a matching International too:
And here’s P Bad in her custom waxed Barbour jacket, and her quilted one (bottom right). Yup, madam has not one, but two bespoke Barbours. (Sausage dog bodies are a bit long for your standard off the peg number, donchakno?) I tried very hard to take a close up, but unfortunately she was far too busy digging holes in Hampstead Heath to pay a blind bit of notice to me. I fear her modelling career will not be taking off. (Then again, no matter, because what’s worse than trussing a dog up and dragging it around the city?)
Here’s the back view of my Barbour. (You may recognise the photos from my trip to Cornwall last summer.)
And here’s Muv with Maudie, taken at the same time as P Bad – proving that we do have at least one well-behaved dog in our family.
A big thank you to Barbour for kitting us out.
Lots of lovely Barbour on ASOS here for girls & for boys (& lots on sale).I’m particularly lusting after the Barbour Flyweight Liberty Rose Lined Beadnell Wax Jacket. Dog coats here.
