Barbour & Norton & Sons, Ahoy
The tailors Norton & Sons, of London's Savile Row, continue their fruitful collaboration with South Shields-based Barbour. A collaboration that makes perfect sense when you consider how Savile Row and Barbour's famous waxed coats embody classic British style.
With creative input from Norton's Patrick Grant, the Beacon Heritage range has a nautical theme for spring and summer; the fabrics and colours of the clothes inspired by the bold fishermen of the Atlantic and the rugged British coastline.
The Slicker Too Jacket
They've used one of your favourite models in the launch (above). The strikingly red-haired chap has been seen on these pages a few times. Who amongst us wouldn't want that colour of hair? I wonder if he'd be interested in being a Pin-up on our pages in an off-duty capacity? It would be a bit of a busman's holiday, I know.
I digress. He's wearing the Slicker Too Jacket, which you can also see below. The pared-down jacket is constructed of blue wax cotton, with green contrasts in the lining and under the collar. Good for a coastal stroll on either side of the Atlantic; good for fishing too, for that matter.
