There are some recipes in this world that are too good to mess with: grandma’s famous chocolate chip cookies, a glass of lemonade on a hot summer’s day, and Barbour’s signature, waterproof jackets. In the age of fast fashion, this 123-year-old company has remained refreshingly classic. Originally created for Scottish fisherman in need of long-wearing, waterproof jackets, Barbour has stayed true to its roots while keeping with the times. As a fifth-generation, family-owned company, Barbour continues to produce high-quality yet functional fashions to this day.

While other brands conform to the season’s latest trends, Barbour strives for consistent quality. The brand creates long-wearing products with a style that outlast seasonal fads, yet remains fresh. This spring, Barbour has drawn inspiration from its coastal origins, lending its collection a nautical flavor. Its stripes, navies, and pastels are sure to restore your wardrobe’s springtime vitality while keeping you protected from DC’s worst April showers.
