Handmade Barbour coats and waxed jackets have long been closet staples for the stylish and outdoorsy, from rock stars to royalty. To celebrate 120 years of craftsmanship, the trusted weather apparel brand is visiting Texas to re-wax and weatherproof anyone’s Barbour gear for free at St. Bernard Sports in Inwood Village on Saturday, December 12, 10 am-5 pm.
Seen on stylish Brits such as Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Kate Middleton, classic and tartan-printed Barbour jackets are made waterproof by coating the cotton fabric with a wax specially formulated for maximum water-resistant qualities. Re-waxing your jacket helps to protect it from severe elements while rejuvenating and restoring the garment, ensuring it remains a go-to item in your wardrobe for years, to be passed down through generations.
Although the handcrafting and quality of Barbour is tradition, the designs keep up with current tastes and trends in the Calvary Polarquilt jacket or Barbour x Christopher Raeburn Clyde Gilet vest for women or the Powell Quilted jacket for men.
Complete your look with game leather shoes and boots from Trask, who will be hosting a trunk show with their winter selections for men and women in conjunction with the Barbour re-waxing at St. Bernard Sports.
Protect yourself from the rain and unattractive outerwear with Barbour, Trask and St. Bernard Sports this Saturday, December 12, at 5570 W. Lovers Ln. #388. Complimentary re-waxing on all Barbour items will be available from 10 am-5 pm.
