It was said that Steve Mcqueen once gave up a night with his moviestar girlfriend at the time to re-wax his wax cotton Belstaff jacket. As classic and iconic as it is, the waxed cotton jacket commands the respect it deserves as one of the tried and true pillars of a man’s wardrobe to weather the elements. Lark in Vancouver has put together a short clip on the tradition of maintaining the Barbour jacket as it will most likely require a waxing in its long-life by your side.

Barbour’s outerwear by the hand of Tokihito Yashida breathes new life into a brand grounded in tradition and function. In To Ki To’s Beacon Range collaboration with Barbour, a sharp sense of design is instilled while still keeping their boots firmly grounded with the classic lines of the British clothier. Barbour & To Ki To’s Blousson recalls the form of World War II bomber jackets. With the use of their traditional waxed cotton, the jacket boasts a luminescence and edge that most overly conservative bomber jackets lack. Pick one up while you still can at the Bergdorff Goodman flagship store, as the Beacon Range is limited.
