Yes it is.

Although I beleive the likes of Lily Allen are very keen on Barbour these days, so perhaps not.

In black, I could see it's potential merits. But not Barbour Green.

that is very horsey vs motorcycle outfit

It looks a bit pervy to me. A bit more Van Helsing than country.

I worry that living in the country has driven me mad because I look longingly at wicker baskets.

reptillian, biker, horseman chic, not a good look

boco i have some wicker baskets, very useful for country stuff like logs and apples that wii rot before i make any pies

I like the country ladies who have pretty lined wicker baskets over their arms when they wander around the farmer's markets buying chutney. I don't even have any chutney actually.

I am after a barbour padded jacket in green, but then I am horsey so can get away with it wink What's wrong with it? Please don't tell me barbour has been hijacked too by 'slebs [sob]

yes, sadly, you appear to have completely lost it grin.

Very bikerish and a complete no-no if your larger than a C cup.

barbour has a very boring website doesn't it

IrishDraught I'm afraid it's true

After 3 months it will smell. All waxed jackets do, and what happens is that you sit down somewhere and after 10 minutes it warms up and then there are whiffs of it coming off.

I wore waxed jackets when I lived at home for practical reasons, and all price ranges do it <bitter experience>

Barbour was hijacked years ago

CarrieDababi Wed 02-Sep-09 20:41:02

DO NOT buy that!

midnightexpress Wed 02-Sep-09 20:41:20

my trendy shoreditch sister has that jacket, she wears it when she visits us in the depths of nowhere and looks most uncountrified. i don't know if that will encourage you to buy or not!

Barbour is worn for practicality, not for fashion. Simple.
