Barbour teams up with Japanese imprint White Mountaineering once more for Spring/Summer 2016, this time taking inspiration from the age-old British pursuit of coarse fishing (that’s fishing for freshwater fish that aren’t salmonoids).
The range consists of a sturdy jacket, overshirt, shorts and tees – all of which feature lightweight waxes and fishing-inspired graphics. An exclusively designed fish camo appears on linings in jackets in bold reds and blues and is used as an allover print in the Manu SS shirt and in bags and accessories. Lightweight wax cotton and casual jackets feature D-rings, pocket and sleeve details, all of which is inspired by fishing jackets.
The standout pieces in the collection, meanwhile, are the two-tone hooded longer length Barbour Grayling jacket with its pocket features and the shorter ultra lightweight Kitefin Casual jacket.
Considering how salty and grizzled most fishermen are, anyone who cops this collection will by default be the most stylish dude on the river.
