At the very heart of the Classic collection and a firm favourite year after year, the Classic Bedale is made using Barbour's 6oz Sylkoil.
Originally introduced for riding, this relaxed-fit jacket is now a seasonal staple in town and country alike, with a mediumweight waxed cotton outer that's comfortable to wear and offers robust weather protection. The two-way front zip is reinforced by hardy stud fastenings to seal out wind and rain, while moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets and generous bellow pockets are winter must-haves. A sit-down collar in signature corduroy creates a smart appearance, but can also be raised for additional protection in bad weather, with a luxurious feel against the face and throat.
Retaining unmistakeable Barbour authenticity, the Classic Bedale features a 100% cotton lining in the Original Classic Tartan print, adding an eye-catching heritage detail. This traditional men's waxed jacket is compatible with Barbour's zip-in liners and optional hoods, for all-round versatility.

The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the read, with Barbour's headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside and each year over 100,000 jackets are processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations.
In 2004, Barbour began to work with Lord James Percy, in the design and marketing of its flagship shooting clothing range - the Northumberland range. Technically advanced and highly acclaimed in 2005, the Northumberland Range won the Shooting Industry Award for best clothing product, and more recently, the Linhope 3-in-1 won the Shooting Industry Award for best clothing product, 2008. More recently he was involved, alongside Vice Chairman Helen Barbour, in designing the new Barbour Sporting collection launched for Autumn Winter 2011.
Barbour now has 11 of its own retail shops in the UK, and a presence in over 40 countries worldwide including the United States, Germany, Holland, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand and Japan.
There are now over 2,000 products across the two seasons and the collections now cater for Men, Ladies and Children. Broadening out from its countrywear roots, today the heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. As well as jackets and coats, the Barbour wardrobe includes trousers, shirts, socks, knitwear and a range of accessories.
Nevertheless, in whichever area the company now operates, it remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British Countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.
