I was slightly surprised to see our executive editor Meredith Rollins wearing an olive-colored, waxed cotton Barbour jacket into the office today-Barbour jackets being more or less the domain of fancy hunters, ancient fly fishermen, and preppy New England types in general. Though Meredith has kind of a preppy vibe, this jacket is a super-flattering, nipped-at-the-waist, shrunken spin on the iconic Barbour style; it's sleek, but it still retains all the cool, rugged details (weatherproof material, tons of pockets, plaid lining) that the company is famous for. She says it makes her feel "like a sexy British heiress at her country retreat," but I think the look is better summed up as downtown-girl-gone-woodsy.
