The waxed-cotton Barbour jacket is the quintessential British coat for most countryside activities, like hunting (see: the Roy brothers on a boar-hunting corporate retreat on Succession), gardening with children (Kate Middleton), and attending music festivals (Alexa Chung at Glastonbury). But its utility extends to more urban contexts too. It’s a very sturdy, wind- and water-resistant coat that’s more stylish than any Gore-Tex jacket, especially when layered over a sweater or a flannel shirt. We’ve also gotten word from our friends at the Strategist UK that this particular olive green is the heritage shade, so know you’re getting the real deal, even though it’s on sale. It’s just $251 at Nordstrom, 33 percent off the list price, part of its (surprisingly good) fall sale.
