The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields, England. The Barbour company’s visionary founder, John Barbour, was inspired to create weatherproof clothing for the fishermen of 19th century Northern England, a rugged, unforgiving landscape. The Barbour name quickly became synonymous with uncompromising workmanship, rigorous construction and detailing and the highest quality textiles and materials. The familiar Barbour jacket olive tones, earthen hues and tartan patterns continue to define a stalwart brand that has never faltered in its commitment to exceptional performance and exquisite design.

Today, the Barbour fashion label is still owned by the Barbour family and is based not far from its roots in nearby Simonside, South Shields. There, Barbour wax jackets--a beloved wardrobe staple for generations--are still manufactured by hand.

Barbour British countrywear lifestyle clothing and its award-winning line of Northumberland shooting clothing, a collaboration with brand ambassador Lord James Percy, is the most recognized of the Barbour range. The Barbour cotton waxed jacket is an indispensible part of the British wardrobe and a favorite of Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family. The Nairn wax jacket and the Alness wax jacket are just two examples of exceptional Barbour weatherproof engineering.

Barbour Polarquilt waistcoats, zip-in liners, derby mac waterproof jackets and quilted tartan vests are also popular must-haves for the outdoor sportsman and sportswoman or for rugged everyday urban style.

Today, there are more than 2,000 Barbour products for men, women and children. As a luxury heritage and lifestyle clothing brand, Barbour produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. In addition to jackets and coats, the Barbour wardrobe includes shirts, trousers, socks, knitwear and a variety of accessories.
