Barbour Tokihito – pre-order at Number Six London
Once again, East London based Menswear shop, Number Six has the latest Barbour Tokihito collection on pre-order for those that want to get in early and secure their jacket before anyone else.
Amongst the styles the lads have ordered in for Autumn/Winter 2011 is the Spey Fishing Jacket – made from a 6oz waxed cotton, the Spey is a brand new style for the new season. The inspiration for the jacket again comes from the Barbour archives and it’s full of authentic fishing details, with an integral rollaway hood and reinforced heavy weight wax shoulder and pocket overlays. Multi-pocketed, the jacket comes with a pair of large chest pockets (one with a fishing net bag), two Napoleon pockets and a further pair of upper pockets with side entry zips – perfect for small items like your iPod and mobile.
Next up is the waxed cotton and Ventile Shoreman Jacket. Inspired by the original long Shoreman, a jacket traditionally used for wildfowl shooting, the jacket features a draw cord waist, an integral detachable hood and quilted body warmer with Shetland wool lining. It has 2 upper fleeced hand warmer pockets, lower poacher pockets, a leather top collar with double zip and throat fastening.
The latest and updated version of Barbour’s hugely popular Motor Bike Shirt next season comes in a 6oz Syloil wax, with the classic and instantly recognisable Cardinl Tartan lining. Born out of the company’s extensive motorbike heritage, the jacket features an integral ‘zip in’ hood in the collar and a lower back rucksack drawstring pocket. Also featuring a pair of upper Napoleon pockets, an upper angled map pocket, two side seam hip and venting pockets and lower front flap welt pockets there’s plenty of storage space in this great looking piece of outerwear.
Also new to this seasons collection is the beautifully constructed Sports Jacket in a mix of olive Syloil waxed cotton and a 100% Shetlan wool tweed, with laminated waterproof backing. The collar has an integral stow-away hood and storm flap closure. The jacket is ergonomically shaped for added comfort and as a whole brilliantly underpins the origins of the style with the cleverly laminated fabric which offers both waterproof and windproof qualities.
So once again (and as we’ve come to expect from this collaboration) there’s some seriously good pieces here, and it’s great to see the range being continuously moved forward with new styles and evolving fabrications. No doubt the collection will prove itself rather popular as previous ones have. If these images are anything to go by then it’s a strong showing indeed.
