Bedale was originally designed by the president, Ms. Margaret Barbour, as a light, wear-resistant, short jacket in two colors: grey green and navy. Its inspiration comes from the lightweight equestrian jacket, and it is also a functional outdoor dress. Bedale is named after a small rural town in Yorkshire, northeastern England, which brings together all the features of the Barbour brand. One hundred percent waterproof, two large organ pockets, sturdy two-way zipper zipper and thick corduroy collar are Barbour’s persistence and perseverance in personality.
Between 1989 and 1990, Bedale gradually enhanced the warmth of its pockets by retaining the original lining and front button flap. In 1995, black and rusty red were introduced one after another, and Barbour’s classic wax treatment process for anti-thorn wax surface was maintained in design. In 1998, Barbour designed olive Bedale with traditional Tartan flannelette. Subsequently, grey green, Tibetan blue, rust red and black have followed this practice, and different color matching grid style, or classic, or fashionable, or low-key. Since then, the authentic England plaid lining has also become a feature of the Barbour jacket design.
In the early 90s, the popularity of Bedale coats led to the trend of wearing loose coats in Italy. In Spain, France, Japan, Bedale is also the vanguard of the trend. Bedale has long been popular in people’s life and work, and has become a fashion choice for their endless yearning for idyllic scenery. Its influence inspires Barbour to design and make women’s waxing coat, which is Beadnell. It was named after a small fishing village in Northumberland, and was sold on sale in 2010. Compared with the classic waxing coat, it is more self-cultivation, especially for ladies.
