Garmology video: Buying a vintage Barbour

In this Garmology video, I talk about buying a vintage Barbour, specifically a Border or Northumbria. Most of the features and differences are covered, as well as how to clean and rewax the waxed cotton.

Read more about rewaxing a waxed jacket here.

If you’d like to have your waxed jacket waxed or repaired, I recommend Ryan at Mallin & Son (you can also hear Ryan on Garmology episode 25 of season 1).

    My favourite Barbour also. Interestingly, I currently have one labelled as a Northumbria which has the heavier outer fabric but the non-wool lining. Works well with heavy sweaters here on rainy southern Vancouver Island. The inner game pockets nicely fit a bottle of scotch…
