Posted on September 3rd, by admin in Our blogs. No Comments

We’ve been overwhelmed by the wonderful feedback we’ve had for our film ‘A Jacket for Life’. From creative agencies that have enjoyed the intimate storytelling to people who now feel proud to wear, or even go out and buy a Barbour we seem to have inspired a lot of online talk about the things we most value.

We’re now sharing a few quotes here, alongside links to other blogs so that you can read some of the reviews in full.

A great video. A Jacket for Life, showcases the 30-year love affairs several Barbour owners have with their jackets—revealing why those relationships last longer than many marriages.

Brilliant video! I’ve owned a Barbour since the early 80s it’s so true about the Barbour Jacket! Worth the investment!

Magali Pettier and Tin Man Films have managed to portray the pleasure and the comfort, both physical and emotional, that a Barbour jacket can give to its wearer. We’re very proud of this legacy and the intimate nature of the experience that our wax jackets give to our customers. We feel that this film not only captures the essence of this, but also celebrates the lives of real people in a very subtle and wonderful way.

Now enjoy watching the film!
