[Chicago Fashion Event] Barbour + Jack Spade Launch!

This post is all about the fellas.  This past weekend I got the opportunity to hang out and talk shop with the great Jack Spade team about their royally exciting partnership with the iconic British clothing manufacturer, Barbour.  Barbour is best known for their waterproof clothing, specifically their Barbour jacket which is synonymous for their trademarked waxed jacket.

One of their most notable and highly recognizable clientele is the British Royal Family.  The Barbour company was specially appointed as the the only company to supply "waterproof and protective clothing" to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh , and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

Needless to say, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to go and get the inside scoop & sneak peek to share with all of my dapper gents about this amazing transcontinental partnership.  The entire Barbour + Jack Spade collection is comprised of 3 bags & 2 jackets.  Having known a little bit of knowledge of the great reputation of the Barbour brand I was definitely not let down by the collection.  Both jackets lived up to the great Barbour reputation of stylish in silhouette and fit yet, multi-functional with a variety of pockets (including a variety of different ways to wear each jacket) and to top it all off both were made of the signature waxed fabric.

With the Chicago fall season creeping up, these 2 unique outerwear pieces should definitely be at the top of your list as alternatives.  Trust me, you will not regret it.

  2. Love a good Barbour leather jackets. I live about half an hour's drive from where they are made so occasionally visit the factory store to see if there are any good deals on. The jackets are made for the country and will last you years.
