Nothing says fall like the classic Barbour country waxed jacket. This autumnal staple is an elegant way to stay warm in the pre-winter months. The classic look and feel add a refined British element to your wardrobe, and thrown over a sweater and collared shirt, this is a great piece of outerwear to use for layering: with a dull olive color perfect for the fall, it will coordinate with almost any item in your wardrobe; and with a waxy feel, it adds some textural spice to your outfit. Our advice, however: go a size down. All too often, we see guys donning these on Ivy campuses looking like they’re in giant bags. Barbour jackets are under-rated for their ability to fit your form in the most flattering of ways.
Note, however, Barbour has gone well beyond their signature coat. They have a really nice collection of warm yet fashionable items that will keep you looking dapper even in the foulest weather.
At any rate, get the classic piece at Orvis for $399.
