Founded in South Shields, England, in 1984, Barbour specialises in luxurious collections of wax jackets and outerwear. Before its Wimbledon headquarters opened in 1916, the brand was based at 5, Marketplace, South Shields. In 2004, Barbour teamed up with Lord James Percy to design and manufacture its flagship Northumberland range. Barbour T-shirts are both traditional and contemporary. The collection features classic polos with tartan detailing and T-shirts featuring graphic prints and logos.
