The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the North East, with Barbour's headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Broadening out from Barbour’s countrywear roots, today our heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. The collections are aimed at men, women, children and even our pets. All Barbour proposals start from countrywear roots, remaining faithful to the heritage and lifestyle values that have always inspired the brand. In addition to the iconic waxed jackets, Barbour offers a unique selection of shirts, dresses, knitwear, footwear, accessories, all strictly in British style.
