Took a nice little trip to the mountains today with the family to see some nature, snow, and grab some holiday apple pie. My newly acquired Barbour Bedale was just what I needed to stay dry and keep warm. To own such an iconic piece of outerwear is something special. I got all kinds of looks, nods and signs of acknowledgment that I had made a good choice. I felt as if I had joined a special club or something. I was feeling a little buyers remorse shortly after purchasing it but after today I don't regret it one bit and look forward to future adventures had in this beautiful jacket.
