How to buy a Barbour waxed jacket?
Step One: Understand the sizing. The first thing to realize is that when you go to buy a Barbour Waxed jacket the sizing is always listed as the UK sizing and the corresponding size for US customers. However, I have found that these jackets still run a little narrow so order up one size especially if you plan on wearing layers underneath.
How do I know if a Barbour jacket is real?
This way, if you ever come across a jacket you will know whether or not it is the real thing. If in doubt, you can always cross-reference styles you find with the main brand site as you go along. 2. Take a Close Look at the Buttons The buttons of every Barbour jacket are always embossed with the Barbour name, regardless of style.
Is there any Barbour childrenswear available?

What is the difference between Barbour Gilpin and Barbour Sapper?
While the rugged utilitarian aesthetic is evident in all Barbour jackets, the Sapper takes these elements (like the four outer pockets) and refines them, making for a jacket that remains functional without looking too much the part. The Gilpin jacket features something we have yet to encounter in any of the previous versions: leather detailing.
What is a Barbour wax jacket made of?
The Barbour jacket is made out of Egyptian cotton and finished off with a wax coating which resists the wind and the rain. When you stand in the drizzle with your wax jacket, you will see the raindrops simple bead up on the jacket, and not soak through at all.
What type of cotton is best for a Barbour jacket?
If you want the traditional image of a Barbour then traditional wax is the way to go. Also, if you want the jacket in any colour other than green then you will need traditional waxed cotton as Sylkoil is now only available in Olive.
