Barbour Way of Life: Coats to Coast

Barbour Coats Jackets Hats

The great outdoors is Barbour’s bread and butter. Though fields and forests are synonymous with the brand, from the very beginning, the Barbour story has had a maritime influence. John Barbour set up his first store in South Shields in the North East of England in 1894 providing garments for sailors, fishermen, rivermen and dockers to protect them from the worst of the North Sea weather. Barbour is steeped in coastal cool.

And while the Coastal collection is inspired by the activities on the edge of land, the Barbour Nautical Collection is strongly linked to Barbour’s heritage on the seas. Originally, Barbour designed clothes which would withstand the harsh conditions of the North Sea. In the modern day this ethos has evolved into a stylish and very wearable collection which is inspired by this rich maritime heritage. It says a lot about the Barbour DNA that the clothing which helped cement its reputation more than 120 years ago continues to inform their evolution today.

1 in 6 adults in the UK regularly indulge in some sort of outdoor pursuits, whether it be a gentle stroll to exercise the dog or something more strenuous in testing conditions. No matter what the activity, it’s important to choose the right tools for the job. Clothing-wise there are a number of tried and tested brands out there.
