THE BARN JACKET
BARBOUR FERNDOWN JACKET. Barbour’s classic wax jackets, made by hand since 1894, set the standard for both quality and style. The equestrian-inspired Ferndown jacket is water and wind repellent to keep you warm and dry in intemperate conditions. It features a two-way front zip with snap-closure storm flap, stand-up collar, roomy front pockets with snap-close flaps, and signature Barbour tartan lining. More great barn jackets are available at L.L.BEAN, FILSON, and J.CREW.
FILSON TWILL BACKPACK. A rugged but stylish backpack is the perfect bag to tote the day’s essentials and store those extra layers. Filson is another reputed outdoor brand with a long tradition of quality and craftsmanship. This new tan and orange cotton twill oil finish backpack features a back-hugging design for exceptional comfort and genuine bridle leather padded straps. Its roomy interior has a padded computer pocket plus 3 additional pockets, and a large outer pocket with a 3 slot pocket inside. Other backpacks we love are from JACK SPADE, ARCHIVAL, and BURTON SNOWBOARDS.
