In 1980, Barbour produced their first short, lightweight jacket, the Bedale. Originally designed for riding, the Bedale is favoured by many Britons, from royalty to pop icons. Dame Margaret Barbour designed the Bedale with equestrian practicalities in mind – with a shorter length, relaxed fit, rear vents and the essential Nylon inner 'drip-strip' that provided resistance to damp from horses seeping into the jacket. Made with mediumweight 6oz waxed cotton and fully interactive with optional zip-in thermal liners and hoods, the Bedale is a brilliant all-year-round jacket. The classic elements of a Barbour jacket are all included, with a brass two-way ring-pull zip and studded 'Stormfly' 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 practicality and simple style of the Bedale remains popular with all ages. The popularity of the Bedale has inspired a slimmed down version for women – the Beadnell, which is named after a small fishing village in Northumberland. Did you know: a Bedale has 160 parts, including 49 cut fabric pieces, 103 trims and findings and eight items of packaging, and the jacket takes 36 people in the Barbour factory in South Shields to construct. 100% waxed cotton outer Pure cotton lining 100% cotton sleeve lining Inner ribbed sleeves Two way zip Corduroy collar Two handwarmer pockets Two large bellow pockets Back length: 76 - 81cm's | 30" - 32" Studded for optional hood Interactive zip
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. 100% waxed cotton outer Pure cotton lining 100% cotton sleeve lining Inner ribbed sleeves Two way zip Corduroy collar Two handwarmer pockets Two large bellow pockets Back length: 76 - 81cm's | 30" - 32" Studded for optional hood Interactive zip
