“One day if I go to heaven…I’ll look around and say ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’ ” - Herb Caen
My friend Cooper has been intermittently posting pictures of Asians in Barbours the last few months. Which reminded me - Barbour jackets are great. Their classics, the Bedale and Beaufort, can be worn with khakis, jeans, odd wool trousers, and even casual country suits. I presume Cooper took these photos from Japanese magazines such as Leon and Mens’ Ex. The last photo, which is of the most important Asian of them all, is something I added myself.
With all the new outerwear designs that come out every season, it’s good to be reminded: the term “classic” isn’t always just a marketing trick. Real classics exist, and they’re quite good. Go get yourself a Bedale or Beaufort if you haven’t already.
