Barbour's wax jackets were built to protect the hides of fishermen, sailors, and shipyard workers from the wind and rain of work on the docks and ships of northeast Britain. With the 1983 debut of the Beaufort wax jacket designed by Dame Margaret Barbour, Barbour's workwear became a style icon, worn by the likes of Princess Diana and David Beckham. The Beaufort is made from Barbour's medium weight 6 oz. Thornproof waxed cotton with a detachable hood and liner, Velcro wind cuffs, and studded corduroy collar. Two large hand warmer pockets, two bellows pockets, and a full-width rear pocket provide practicality for any use case.
