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.
And the best part? On April 22 Thirty Seventh will team up with Barbour for a shopping event at their local M Street location! Stop by and beat the pre-exam blues with some retail therapy, because from 2-4PM you can use your Georgetown ID to receive a complimentary monogram with the purchase of any Barbour quilted or wax cotton jacket, and 10% off your purchase overall. Plus, you can enter to win a $400 gift card!
So if you want Barbour’s classic style at a college-friendly price, visit us on Saturday, April 22 at 3221 M St NW, and like our Facebook event for all of the updates. We look forward to seeing you there!
Thirty Seventh would like to thank Barbour for this collab, and for providing their Stripe Trevose Jacket, Trevose Jacket, Harewood Dress, Sealand Striped Wrap Scarf, Iona Wrap, and Sealand Straw Hat for our photoshoot.
