The latest edition to Barbour's ever expaning range, Dept. (B) takes its name from the department in their South Shields factory that has dealt with bespoke customisation for decades. One of the factors that sets them apart, Barbour have always allowed their customers to specify a piece to their exact needs, by adding in an extra pocket, reinforcement or functional detail to better enable a jacket to be used as a tool to fit a purpose. It is these details which Dept. (B) now focus on, creating an intricately designed range that draws heavily from the past of both Barbour and this very unique department.
The Needle Jacket is Dept. (B)'s take on a classic workshirt, reinforced to deal with the coldest of winter weather. Made from a garment dyed Cotton/Linen blend shell, it is lined with a super soft wool blend and polyester sleeves for warmth and comfort. A main focus of the range, the detailing and customisation is second to none with triple stitch construction and reinforcement at the elbows, shoulders and a whole host of functional detail.
