Is there a proper way to put away the waxed barbour for the summer or can I just hang it up and forget about it?
I usually, try to clean my jackets up a little and empty out all of the pockets before I put them away for the summer. You can hang them up in a cool, dry closet and they should be fine. Be mindful what you hang next to them if your house/apt gets very hot. You wouldn’t want any warmed wax getting on another jacket.
I have also started storing some jackets in Ziploc 5L bags. If you do a nice job folding them, they should fit right in. See picture: http://thornproof.tumblr.com/post/23734799577/storing-some-barbour-jackets-for-the-winter-the
Remember that this is a great time to send you jacket back to Barbour to have it rewaxed.
Anon: Hi, any idea of what model the navy blue Barbour is that you posted on April 23 is? Do you know it’s available in the US? Thanks!
I think you mean this ToKiTo Bicycle jacket that I posted on April 24 (pictured above). You can try Barbour-SoHo, (NY), Barbour- Philadelphia (downtown), Barbour Georgetown and Barbour by David Wood in Portland, Maine- all carry the “ToKiTo” Beacon Heritage line. Also, you can try boutique shops like Royal Male in Newport, RI. Check the store locator on the Barbour homepage for all of the contact info and lines each store carries. You might be closer to a store that sells Barbour than you think. Cheers!
