A fifth generation family-owned business, Barbour is a modern brand offering a complete wardrobe of beautifully-made, classically-designed, functional clothing. The line-up includes everything from socks, scarves, bags and hats to shirts, trousers, tailored jackets and, of course, the famous wax jackets. Each seasonal collection for men and women (Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter) is segmented into four areas: sporting, classic, contemporary and heritage.
The Barbour brand is an internationally recognized name, sold in more than 40 countries. Turnover is growing (£89.8 million in 2010) and Barbour employs over 550 staff. Women’s wear is the fastest-growing part of the company, accounting for 33% of global business. Heritage and contemporary products, inspired by the brand’s rich archive, have helped broadened its appeal, along with more rugged tailoring and new fits. Barbour continues to evolve as a lifestyle brand while staying true to its sporting core.
