When John Barbour founded J Barbour & Sons in 1894, his vision was to create a wardrobe of clothes for men and women based on the founding principles of quality, durability, attention to detail and fitness for purpose.
‘Classic’ is an over-used adjective these days, but in the case of Barbour, it truly does apply. Classic wax jackets don’t come more iconic, and for many there’s a ‘Barbour way of life’ in these garments renowned for shrugging off the worst of the British weather - year-in, year-out.
This is British country style with a proud heritage. Barbour was there for the North East’s 19th century fishermen, for the war time submarine service and Britain’s motorcycle trials teams. Today Barbour’s classic wax jackets – still crafted on Tyneside to patterns based on heritage archives – are complemented by quilted jackets and gilets, lightweight gilets and cosy bodywarmers. Beautiful, functional, and a must for your country lifestyle wardrobe.
