THE BEAUFORT 40TH ANNIVERSARY
This year, the iconic Beaufort Wax Jacket celebrates its 40th anniversary. Designed by Dame Margaret Barbour and first introduced into the range in 1983, this jacket is one of Barbour’s signature styles, worn by country lovers and city dwellers alike, and remains a classic.
“Back in 1983, the Beaufort was a new style of jacket that had not really been seen before. I designed it as a multi-purpose jacket that was immensely practical and functional. It was very successful straight away. I also designed it in navy and it became very popular on the high street. It was what people were looking for.”– Dame Margaret Barbour DBE DL Chairman
