Barbour

Barbour

Barbour is Britain’s quintessential outdoorwear brand, thanks to its iconic wax cotton jacket. Founded by John Barbour in South Shields in 1894, the business continues to be family owned with its roots firmly in the North East. Whilst Barbour takes advantage of their global reach for sourcing some products, the classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in their Simonside factory. From countrywear beginnings to a worldwide heritage and lifestyle brand, Barbour fuses traditional craftsmanship with a contemporary edge to create wearable and durable classics that stand the test of time.
