Barbour and Deus Ex Machina aim for a lighter mood, with the launch of these three “International Geelong Washed Casual” jackets, a contrast to the last heritage-heavy waxed jackets we saw from the duo. For Spring/Summer 2015 we see three playful colorways, fresh blue, moss and yellow, spread across casual cotton outerwear numbers. The International now a coat-classic, this hardy historical motorcycle layer takes a warm weather direction. The garment dyed fabric carries a washed out, worn-in feel, while the style and weight pack that relaxed tone as well. Unlikely to be your bike-ride companion, these up-beat variations may be better suited for everyday occasions, a tad more practical for most of us. A great exercise in easy-wearing pieces from the two rugged labels.
