J. Barbour & Sons Ltd. is a British premium lifestyle brand founded by John Barbour in 1894 that designs, manufactures and markets protective outerwear, knitwear, shirts, trousers, shoes and accessories for men, women and children under the Barbour brand.
It’s very much a family affair and it is this heritage and passion which has led to over 120 years of success.
Barbour is extremely popular on the fashion scene with celebrities such as Alexa Chung, the Royal Family, Sarah Jessica Parker and even Daniel Craig as James Bond sporting the brand.
Through innovation in its product lines, Barbour is able to appeal to many different audiences. The classics remain timeless but they are evolving the look and feel of their new collections. This brings us to the Barbour Heritage collection – a refreshed, energetic collection aimed at a younger generation.
About Barbour Heritage
The Barbour Heritage collection takes inspiration from traditional Barbour designs, re-imagining them to create a modern take on the much-loved British classics. History is ingrained into every garment, which begins with a classic design from the Barbour archives, before being recreated into distinctive contemporary pieces.
The collection includes iconic Barbour jackets, t-shirts, shorts, knitwear and polo shirts, each one offering the instantly recognisable Barbour quality and style.
Featuring bold prints, inspiration is taken from the dusty desert to the tumbling valley river with a heavy dose of military influence for a colour palette as rich as the heritage it originates from. Traditional country pursuits also act as a major influence in the design of the garments which feature iconic details such as cartridge pockets, leather recoil patches and classic tartan linings.
A collection that expresses energy and a refreshed nod to youth culture, the Barbour Heritage collection boasts a modernised aesthetic and updated silhouette. A diverse range of eclectic fabrics adds to the charm of these pieces.
How to Style your Barbour Jacket
Barbour jackets are a perfect piece for layering in autumn/winter. The versatile design of each jacket means you can dress your jacket up or down.
For the perfect casual outfit that’ll keep the chill out, try layering your Barbour Oakum jacket with a Barbour John Tartan shirt and Barbour Rydal jumper – Add a classic Barbour tartan scarf over the top for an especially cold day.
Smarten the outfit up with clean black jeans or chinos and a pair of Barbour Shackleton Chukka Boots.
