Founded in 1894 in South Shields, this 5th generation family-owned business remains a staple of British heritage, all-season functionality, and fashion, thanks to their classic collection of women's and men's wax jackets. With a rich history that includes Royal Warrants, outfitting the navy during WWII and more contemporary celebrity endorsements, Barbour is indeed in a league of their own. Today, the brand still manufactures their timeless coats and knit sweaters by hand in their Simonside facility. The company’s wardrobe also includes a series of trousers, shirts, socks, and an expanding range of accessories. For life in Canada, Barbour’s waterproof wax Ashby raincoats in green and brown colourways are perfect for seasonal urban commutes and outdoor adventures in the woods.
