Barbour is a British luxury lifestyle brand, founded by John Barbour in 1894 with a countryside heritage from South Shields. Best known for their wax and quilted jackets, the outerwear specialists offer a mixture of traditional and bold hues. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the North East, with Barbour's headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Broadening out from Barbour’s countrywear roots, today the heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. As well as jackets and coats, the Barbour wardrobe includes shirts, dresses, knitwear, footwear, accessories and more. This collection is perfect for festival go-ers, work commutes, countryside strolls and stylish everyday wear. Barbour remains true to its core values as a family business and continues to embrace the unique values of the British Countryside and bring the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.
