Seasonal Styles from Joules and Barbour
In the previous edition of the Ken Varey Town & Country Wear blog, we introduced a sumptuous selection of garments designed to help you face the cold and wet weather of winter in style. We're continuing with the winter theme in this article, which showcases four fashionable garments from two of your very favourite big-name brands: Joules and Barbour.
The perfect combination of form and function, the Piper parka from Joules is nothing short of stunning. Though supremely cosy and completely waterproof, the garment is designed to be completely breathable and easy to wear, with fully taped seams, diamond-quilted lining and a hood trimmed with fashionable faux fur.
Adjustable internal waist cords allow you to achieve a flattering silhouette with ease, while also allowing the parka to accommodate those crucial extra layers of clothing. Cut to a stylish long line, this beautiful piece of outerwear boasts an array of stylistic features including removable faux fur trim detail, a dropped fishtail hem and subtle Joules branding in the form of a silicon badge.
Snuggle up in this delightful jumper, which has been knitted using the finest wool in a classic cable pattern to give a beautifully-casual boxy fit. The raglan sleeves and crew neck make Joules's Mavis jumper ideal as a layering piece, while the understated cream colour enhances versatility.
Made especially for the colder season, the Barbour Corbridge is a contemporary, expertly-engineered take on the classic utility jacket. The rugged jacket has been crafted using Barbour's robust 6oz Sylkoil waxed cotton and lined with lightweight nylon, with warm quilted wadding sandwiched between. A funnel collar lined with corduroy cleverly conceals an adjustable nylon hood which can be quickly and easily revealed when the inevitable rain begins.
Other key features of this sophisticated jacket include a two-way zip fastening, a storm fly front, adjustable cuffs and four roomy pockets. Please note that the garment is cut to a slim fit so it is advisable to choose a size higher than you would usually go for.
Layering up during the cold weather of winter is recommended and the Rosemount gilet from Barbour is an ideal piece in this regard. Lined with plush polar fleece, the gilet delivers exceptional warmth and features secure stud-fastenings. Lower patch pockets and discreet branding completes the practical yet stylish look.
