Rewaxing some Barbour jackets.

I usually warm the jacket on a radiator or throw it in the car with the windows closed on a warm summer day. The jacket needs to be very warm or even hot to let the dressing soak in properly. Don't let your wax cool off either. That's nothing but trouble. Use a small sponge to put it on and a clean cloth to wipe it down and distribute the dressing evenly.
It's a bit like juggling- once you get the hang of it, it's fun. Cheers!

Barbour 1964 Catalogue and Price Guide

Unfortunately, these scans are out of order, but you get the idea.  I'm more of a Tumblr guy and still learning my way around blogger.   I hope that you enjoy this old catalogue!

 The Moorland Jacket looks a little different than the one we know now.

 Barbour for kids is no new development.

 The International was "famous" even back in '64.

 I'm OK with Barbour not selling these undergarments anymore.

 Love the Ladies' Scooter Suit!

The Solway Zipper came back briefly a few years ago, but has since disappeared.  I found one that fit at the outlet in Milford about two years ago, but didn't get it.  Of course, I have many regrets now.  Cheers!
