Not long after their founding in 1983, J.Crew introduced their Barn Jacket, a jacket designed by a then 25-year-old Sid Mashburn who drew inspiration from dozens of vintage hunting jackets. Over thirty years later, longtime collaborator Barbour has revisited it for the J.Crew Editions project.

While the original Barn Jacket sported a sturdy, flannel-lined water-resistant canvas shell with wood buttons and classic hunting-style pockets, Barbour’s remix adds weatherproofing and more storage. The new rendition incorporates Barbour’s classic eight-ounce waxed cotton lined with their signature tartan fabric, zip front with a storm placket, snap buttons throughout and additional pockets at the torso. As meta as it is for Barbour to redesign a jacket that was likely inspired by some of its own designs, it’s still a classic, just better.
