- April 1st 2014
2014 is proving to be an exciting year as we celebrate Barbour's 120th anniversary. In aid of the celebrations we're inviting you to share your own Barbour stories with us, and feature on our new interactive timeline.
Whether it be a tale of a wax jacket that has been passed-down through one family for several years, or pictures of dogs roaming country fields in their very own Barbour dog coats, we want to see your pictures and hear your stories.
Enter via Twitter and Instagram, using #Barbour120, or via our specially made microsite thestory.barbour.com, where many of the submissions will be featured. A Barbour Originals classic wax jacket is up for grabs to those who submit the best entries every week until the end of June.
As well as your stories, the timeline also showcases the brand’s development over the years, exploring the five generations of the Barbour family who have each made their mark on the business in their own unique way. Special behind the scenes videos give you the opportunity to meet some of the key people behind the brand, from Chairman Dame Margaret Barbour who has led the company for over 40 years, to the talented seamstresses who make many of the classic wax jacket styles by hand at the brand’s South Shields-based Factory.
Here's to the next 120 years!
