A Barbour

of a Different Color

When you think of the iconic outdoor clothier Barbour, the mind automatically pictures the muddy color of the British brand's signature waxed cotton coats. But to celebrate the 75th anniversary of their legendary International motorcycle jacket—you know, the one Steve McQueen raced in—the company's introduced a colorful line of nylon Internationals inspired by Barbour's racing suits of the 1970s. While the material might be new, the classic fit, corduroy trimmed collar and plaid cotton lining are exactly like the originals. And don't worry, you don't need a vintage Triumph or classic Harley to pull one off.
