It’s amazing how barn coats have popularized so much over the past few years. It all started at an undergrad football game about two years ago when I noticed a few guys sporting the classic olive Beadnell jacket by Barbour. Maybe it was one of those circumstances when you notice something for the first time, and then that object appears everywhere… because that’s exactly what happened! After that day, it seemed like tons of guys wore them around campus. It didn’t take long for girls to catch on either, Barbour jackets were everywhere. After doing a little research on the brand, I realized that these coats are pretty amazing. They’re weatherproof, warm, and last a lifetime if taken care of properly. When you think of barn coats, Barbour is probably the company that comes to mind first… but there are other brands out there that offer great barn coats too!
I have the olive J.Crew Quilted Jacket, and I love it paired with Fryes, cords and a comfy flannel!
A barn coat is definitely an investment piece that’s worth the price!
