rich heritage, contemporary twist

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. Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside and each year over 100,000 jackets are processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations.


With a focus on timeless, investment pieces designed for today, Modern Heritage embraces the Barbour archive and explores the brand’s rich Scottish heritage and roots.  Elevated fabrication and styles come together in tailored, elegant signature trench coats and quilts, new recycled knitwear, organic jersey and premium Italian wools.  New tartans, Hessian and Hawthorne are introduced in muted earthy colour tones that feature throughout the clothing.  Modern Heritage cleverly mixes smart and casual clothing for high low dressing.  Sophisticated and desirable, it’s a collection for today.
