Description

Barbour is a brand that started with Scottish-born John Barber in 1894 in South Shields, England, introducing oil-skinned workwear, a functional clothing that protects the body against the unpredictable weather. Since the introduction of iconic waxed cotton jackets such as Bidale, Viewport, and Border, centered on outerwear focused on function and purpose, we have created a collection of vintage products and a custom and re-waxing culture, instilled the image of ‘waxed cotton jackets are barber’ in the public. Barber, which has been running its business in the form of family management for the fifth generation, has made a leap forward as a lifestyle brand by adjusting the fit and changing the style to the needs of the times, and enhancing the accessibility of a new generation through collaboration with a number of fashion brands.

Bidale, Viewport and Border: These three jackets prove that Barber is useful not only in the countryside, but also in the city. It’s practical because you can put your prey, books borrowed from the library, and things you’ve bought in pockets of various sizes on your jacket. Certainly these jackets have changed Barber’s status. It became a beloved outfit in the city and in the garden.

Dame Margaret Barber  Chairman of J. Barbour and Sons Ltd.

The reason Barber is defined by a variety of images for Britons is because it boasts the highest quality, but it’s a product that everyone can buy with just a little savings. It’s not exclusive, and the design is excellent enough to be worn for a lifetime. I also believe that Barber’s waxed cotton jacket is a democratic character with a long legacy.
