2019 marks 125 years of Barbour, a significant milestone in the company’s history.

Behind the Scenes at the O&C Butcher SS19 Photoshoot

We had a fantastic spring/summer photoshoot on Monday at The Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh.  Teamwork is definitely the name of the game on a day when we have to fit so much in to one day to cover key looks for both spring and summer. Alas the budget doesn’t stretch to warmer climes so the models were absolute stars for bracing a strong Northerly breeze on Aldeburgh beach. It may turn into a bit of an Oscar’s speech but we must thank a few key people for making the day... Read More

Spring, it’s a gradual process…

From -10C in 1956 to 19.7C in 1998 it’s fair to say that February weather can be changeable.

If you’re lucky it might be... Read More

Although that’s not the case this year with the AW18 Collection from Barbour. One of their key focuses this year has been for pops of colour either on their own or as part of a layered look that will really help you stand out from the crowd on even the greyest day. One...
