Anyway, I mentioned last year that I got a barn jacket on sale for like $30 and its made me happy. That doesn't mean that I've stopped searching for a Barbour alternative. The other day I was on the L.L. Bean site contemplating a new peacoat when I noticed that they have a waxed barn coat for sale! At $119 its still pretty pricy, but much more doable than $400. I think this is a pretty good dupe for the Barbour version.
Pretty similar right?! The only big difference I notice is the one from L.L. Bean does not have a zipper, only snaps. But I find it hard to imagine that would be a deal breaker for anyone.
Here's how I would style a L.L. Bean waxed jacket for those cold, damp fall days. Cozy sweater, Hunter wellies and my favorite Smartwool socks of course!
Well now that I've picked out how to wear it I need to buy it... right? This jacket is definitely on my wish list.
What do you think of the barn coat trend?
