Barbour follow up the British legacy they have created by combining their own waxed (and what looks like) British field camo on one of the most classic hats of all time.
It’s nice to see the Brits maintaing classic fishing/outdoor attire and applying a modern twist on this timeless hat. Over time, the brand have created some of the most definitive English outerwear garments on the market, and are gradually beginning to broaden their horizons. They’ve made bucket hats in the past, and they have always been quintessentially Barbour, but along with other old English brands like Trickers and Churches shoes, they’ve realised there’s still a market for them and are beginning to re-model the old classics. Its also exciting to see them moving on from their classic jackets to a whole new ball game; knitwear to luggage and a collaboration with Tokihito Yoshida on their heritage line.
The entire hat and brim are swamped in the traditional camouflage, with only the lining of the inner head space being contrasted in a neutral brown. What really tops the hat off for me is the extra detail applied by the black and orange ‘Barbour’ label and the waxed material, defining the hat and making it their own.
This Barbour Waxed Camo Bucket Hat is available now from End Clothing for £29.
