We assume most of our customers are already familiar with Barbour, the British outerwear company founded in 1894 in South Shields with two Royal Warrants to their name.
Today, it is a fifth generation family owned business. Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour’s classic
wax jackets –their signature pieces with names like the Beaufort and Bedale– are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside
with over 100,000 jackets processed via the central, subsidiary and
local customer service operations each year.
While Barbour has been around for 117 years, it is new to our website and store, so we’re starting with an edited selection of outerwear, sport shirts, and accessories, but we expect our assortment to grow quickly.
For history buffs, there is a great timeline of the brand on Barbour’s site. Welcome, Barbour!
