Founded in 1894 in South Shields in the North East of England, the iconic British brand remains a family owned business in the same town to this day. Barbour's classic wax jackets totalling over 100,000 are still manufactured by hand in their local factory in Simonside. Expanding from its country wear roots, today the heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. Remaining true to the company’s core values, fashion forward pieces still possess the ethos of beautiful functional clothing. Essential attire for the country gentleman and his contemporary, Barbour's influence is now international, with its popularity being as strong on the high street as it is in the woodlands, forests or fields of the countryside. Designed for the worst that the British weather can throw at us, Barbour jackets will serve you wherever you may be.
