John Barbour founded Barbour in 1894 when he began supplying workers in the North East of England with weather-resistant, practical clothing. Today, the label is about much more than functional workwear and is a fifth generation family-owned business, inspired hugely by the British countryside. Tough and beautifully-made, Barbour places a great deal of importance on fabric, construction and comfort. Think sturdy leather, warming fleece linings and traditional wax jackets with fold-out hoods, extra padding and plenty of pockets. The brand has even got underwear covered 'take a look at this selection of men's Barbour underwear, which includes socks in every colour and print imaginable as well as fleece wellington boot liners.
