Barbour: 125 Years of Functional Style

Couple sitting outside wearing Barbour Jackets and Outdoor Clothing

If we ask you to imagine a British countryside scene, what springs to mind?

A windswept moor? Rolling pastures of green and gold? A dark autumnal lake? Freshly ploughed farmland?

There are plenty of possible images, all as valid as each other. But it’s hard to picture any of them without picturing a Barbour jacket or two.

Inextricably linked with the great British outdoors, Barbour is the heritage brand for all types of country pursuits. Whether it’s dog-walking, fishing, horse-riding, shooting, or just strolling to the pub, you’ve seen it done in a Barbour.

As well as timeless British style, it’s a brand synonymous with reliability and durability – “a jacket for life”, as the slogan goes.

2019 marks Barbour’s 125th anniversary. Now in its fifth generation and a quarter of the way through its second century of business, the brand is as strong and iconic as ever – retaining its traditional audience while continuing to attract new customers.

And what does it all come down to? That winning combination of functionality and aesthetic.

They’ve got their classic silhouettes that we all know well, from the Beaufort to the Stockman and everything in between. But like all great brands, they’ve continued to move forward and innovate, with new designs such as the Fenton and the Tellin, all while staying true to John Barbour’s original 1894 vision.

Join in the celebration of this iconic British institution by investing in a new jacket for your own outdoor endeavours – because an investment is what it is. Barbour always was and still is a name you can count on.
