Then and now

Barbour’s history dates back to 1894, when John Barbour opened his first store in Market Place, South Shields. Today, the family business is in its fifth generation and is still based in the northeast of England. The classic waxed jacket styles Bedale, Beaufort and Beadnell are still produced at the company’s own manufacturing facility in South Shields.

Barbour’s customer service is unique and also based at the South Shields headquarters. Around 100,000 jackets are repaired, re-waxed or altered by Barbour’s customer service team worldwide each year.

Barbour is distributed in over 40 countries worldwide, including the UK, Germany, the USA, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Argentina, New Zealand and Japan.

Barbour has evolved into a modern lifestyle brand offering fashionable and functional outfits. The extensive selection for women, men and children ranges from quilted jackets, shirts, knitwear, pants, jackets, dresses, scarves, bags, shoes and hats to the legendary wax jackets.

Barbour stands for authenticity and the unique values of the British country lifestyle. Quality, durability and functionality have been core values of the company for over 120 years. Barbour offers functional clothing that is suitable for any occasion.
