The British Fashion Invasion - Barbour Gold Coast
The Brits are taking over the "high streets" and I have no complaints. British fashion solidified itself on Michigan Ave with Burberry and All Saints' flagship near Apple and Nike, and the new flagship Barbour store is gently pushing the British fashion influence into the surrounding Gold Coast area.
Bringing more than century of rugged yet refined outerwear to Walton street, the two-story shop can outfit the entire family in stylish sweaters, trim parkas, quilted jackets and the company's famous wax cottoned coats. Dress head to toe in the gear and you're ready for a British hunting trip or a day out in the Midlands.
If the trendy outdoorsy look isn't your style, drift over to the Original Biker line. Designed for cross country back road motorcycle races, the badass jackets feature a slick slanted map pocket that's perfect for the days you want to ditch your phone and go old school.
And if anyone questions your style, just remind them that the King of Cool, Steve McQueen, used to rock Barbour when he raced motorcycles.
