Wellies and Brollies
Friday 4th November, 2016 | Posted by Marchbrae
After an uncharacteristically warm and dry British summer, the colder and wetter weather is sure to be on its way. With last week's accessories edit we covered a selection of gloves, scarves and hats available at Marchbrae preparing you for the cold, now it's time to take a look at some pieces geared towards protecting you from the rain. We've named it 'Wellies and Brollies' but there are some other great garments and items to protect you from any showers that may come. We have an excellent range from brands such as Barbour, Hunter and Joules that will be sure to keep you singing in the rain...
Here are our picks:
Joules bring back their printed welly for another season with some new designs that we're sure you'll love. The first is this Black Dragonfly print that is something a little out of the ordinary. Known for showcasing fauna and flora, this design is in keeping with the rest of the range and we love the black and gold colourway. Handmade using natural rubber, we think these look great with just about anything. For the ultimate wet weather protection, why not pair with a wax jacket?
We could hardly write about wellies without including something from Hunter. A truly British heritage brand, Hunter still provide some of the best quality wellies around. The tartan design is screen printed onto cotton canvas and then protected with a water resistant finish for a great look. The lavender design brings a bright splash (sorry, we had to) of colour to any autumn/winter outfit. Given Hunter's expertise, this a boot that you can trust will stand up to any test.
Another welly from Joules, this time for the gentlemen, comes by the way of this classic olive coloured boot. The neoprene lining adds an extra layer of warmth, whilst the high quality vulcanised rubber creates a strong barrier against the wet. These wellies are crafted to do exactly what you expect them to and can be matched with any number of jackets from our range. The rugged soles can tackle even the most challenging of terrain and if you need to keep your boots looking their best, we have Joules' Welly Wash available.
A shorter biker-inspired boot with some great attributes. These wellies from Barbour International feature a tough vulcanised rubber construction and chunky tread sole. We love the diamond-quilted leg design and the matte black finish. The fastening strap adds a nice touch to this boot, making it look less like your typical pair of wellingtons. They can be paired with any number of Barbour wax or quilted jackets for a complete autumn outfit.
Featuring Joules' french navy floral printed pattern, this umbrella brings a bit of nature to the city. With a smooth wooden handle and articulated frame, it has been built with the British weather in mind. It is easily snapped back in to place when blown inside out and comes with a cover for storing in your bag when not in use. An all-around great little umbrella.
Suitable for all pre-studded Barbour jackets (Bedale, Beadnell and Beaufort) the Classic Sylkoil Hood is the perfect item to add to your wardrobe for the change in weather. Featuring Barbour's classic tartan on the inside, this hood looks great and is 100% practical. There is a removable wire under the brim allowing for a semi-set position to be held and drawstrings with toggles for tightening. An excellent accessory!
An essential item to keep in your bag, the Astern Poncho packs away into its own front pocket. Both lightweight and waterproof, it is available in Barbour's classic tartan design and comes complete with drawstring hood. The ultimate protection from the elements.
