Late fall has finally arrived here in Chester County and with it comes the breakout of my Barbour outerwear.
One cannot say enough about the genius of these coats and jackets with their superb craftsmanship and last-forever quality.
I have two which see me through daily, depending on whether it's wet or dry.
For dry and chilly November days, my go-to is this classic Barbour-green quilted coat.
Its three-quarter length makes it versatile for wear with pants or skirts, and the hood protects one's neck and head from raw winds. Pockets galore, and snaps plus a zipper closure make it sensible and easy to wear. It's fleece-lined, so it's quite toasty. Not to mention, it can be popped into the washer (cold water, handwash settings) and into the dryer as well.
When rain is in the mix, I don my trusty waxy jacket with its warm heavy lining. Rain simply melts off this jacket. Perfect for riding, too.
Pair these with cords and wellies and you're set for anything sporty.
