BARBOUR MWX0018-SG91 Bedale Wax Jacket OLIVE GREEN
BARBOUR MWX0018-SG91 Bedale Wax Jacket
In 1980, Barbour produced its first short, lightweight jacket, the Bedale. Originally designed for horse riding, the Bedale is preferred by many Brits, from royalty to pop icons.
Dame Margaret Barbour designed the Bedale with equestrian practicality in mind - with a shorter length, relaxed fit, rear vents and the essential internal nylon "drip strip" that provided resistance to the horses' moisture seeping into the jacket . Made from 6oz mid-weight waxed cotton and fully interactive with thermal linings and optional zippered hoods, the Bedale is a shining jacket all year round.
The classic elements of a Barbour jacket are all included, with a two-way brass ring zipper and a 'Stormfly' studded front, two large bellows pockets and two moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets and the traditional corduroy collar with studs for a hidden throat flap.
Now a classic, the Bedale's practicality and simple style remain popular with all ages.
The popularity of the Bedale has inspired a slimmer version for women: the Beadnell, named after a small fishing village in Northumberland.
Did you know: A Bedale has 160 parts, including 49 pieces of cut fabric, 103 trim and spares, and eight items of packaging, and the jacket requires 36 people at the Barbour factory in South Shields to build.
