Dress like Steve McQueen – Barbour unveils new range

By Stefano on March 6th, 2013

It is incredible to think that almost 35 years after his sad and premature death that Steve McQueen remains one of the most recognisable and iconic Hollywood stars.

Barbour certainly thinks McQueen is a legend. The British brand has been adding to its McQueen inspired range.

In keeping with McQueen’s on (and off) screen persona it is tough clothing that you’d expect to wear as you hare round the Mojave desert on a bike.

How this translate to waiting at a bus stop in Romford remains to be seen, but hey we can all aspire.

It is, as you’d expect from Barbour, high quality clobber made from tough durable materials. Some of the items are distressed to accentuate that tough guy look. You can make your own minds up about these.

There are however a few less expensive items that might appeal to film buffs. Here’s a selection,but you can see whole load more here.

Beech Shawl Collar Cardi £149.95

By Colin Chapman on April 2nd, 2009

Belstaff_Barbour.jpgThe waxed cotton jacket emerged as a serious fashion proposition a few years ago now, but there are lots on the streets again and who can wonder? Light enough for you to wear on the Tube, waterproof by definition and adding a timeless Englishness to an otherwise casual outfit, it’s near perfect for spring. Another reason for its re-appearance, aside from sheer practicality, is the popularity of Barbour as yet another classic British brand being rediscovered.

When We Were Casuals – for all your Fila, Reebok and, um, deerstalker needs

By admin on June 19th, 2008

deerstalker.jpgSay what you like about 80s football hooligans, but even while they were battering people’s heads in with metal poles, they had style. Or that’s the popular perception nowadays anyway – I’m sure they couldn’t ALL have been clad in Lacoste. Of course we don’t call this style of dress hooliwear, or whatever – it’s “terrace fashion”, sweetheart.

When We Were Casuals is a site that caters to the gentleman who likes his Fila, Adidas and Barbour gear. Yes, you can find Reebok Classics there, but you can also get some slightly more unusual bits and bobs – howsabout a Christy’s Deerstalker with silk lining? You know it’s just the thing you need to finish off your outfit. Only £40, too.
