Functional, comfortable, and extremely warm, it’s no wonder that fleece has come full circle and permeated our staple wardrobes once again. A few years ago, we probably would have associated fleece with the not-so-trendy hikers, Geography teachers and the like, but now, with it’s rugged retro look and unbeatably warm construction, fleece has made a comeback.
Fleece is warm, but lightweight. Man-made and derived from plastic, it’s tightly woven giving a great texture and unbeatable heat retention which makes it great for layering during the colder months. Thanks to the 90’s revival, fleece is effortless to style and perfect for creating a nostalgic look.
The Barbour beacon collection features colour block styles like the Bernard jacket which is fleece lined with tightly woven fleece, which helps retain your body heat on colder days. The Lagg gilet is a great layering option that can be styled under lightweight jackets when you’re in need of an extra layer. Featuring elasticated piping and a chest pocket, this rugged fleece offers a retro hiker aesthetic in black and olive hues.
