Reminiscent of the original Barbour International jackets, the British designer takes inspiration from military pieces for their new-season Contact Overshirt. Spun with an understated twill texture, the brushed cotton offers much more than just a soft handle next to the skin. The discreet pattern reveals fewer dirt stains and marks than a regular, sheer fabric, and its construction naturally leads it to being much more sturdy than your average shirt or flannel. Truly a considered design that channels the brand’s workwear roots. Elsewhere, you’ll find its relaxed, easy-going fit to make for versatile styling options, as the angled chest pocket pays homage to Barbour’s involvement on the biker scene. Finished with a tonal button fastening and branding to the left sleeve as worn, we’ll be wearing ours over basics at the weekend.
