Saltire Collection : Men's Barbour Essentials for AW19
autumn winter 2019
Since Barbour first emerged 125 years ago, our collection of iconic waxed cotton jackets has evolved into a go-to British lifestyle brand of premium, quality clothing. Throughout the decades, what remains true is our heritage, and the foundation of the brand, the Barbour family. The Saltire collection brings the Barbour family crest to the fore, a range of every day essential shirting, polo shirts and luxury t-shirts featuring the crest which is derived from the Barbour family coat of arms which originated in Galloway, Scotland.
The colours gold, azure blue, and silver within the crest represent generosity, truth and sincerity, the shells, far off lands, and the helmet, strength, protection, and invulnerability. The Latin motto ’Nihilo nisi Duro’, meaning ‘Only through endurance’ provides a fitting encapsulation of the durability of Barbour clothing. The Barbour Saltire sees the coat of arms simplified into a strong white crest overlaid with an azure blue saltire, the cross, which we have proudly woven into a curated collection of your favourite, go-to pieces within the men’s range which epitomise the brand’s versatility and durability within any man’s capsule wardrobe.
Expanding on The Shirt Department, Saltire encapsulates a range of essential tailored shirts crafted from 100% cotton, available in a selection of casual plaid, check, and plain twills which feature a signature patch pocket with a stylish woven tab. Designed to suit any occasion, and crafted from high-quality fabrics, the casual shirts collection offers comfort throughout the colder months in soft, brushed cotton and laid-back checks in muted, autumnal tones. Our best-selling Oxford shirts are a staple within the Saltire range, the perfect ‘Sunday shirt’ which features a classic button-down collar, pearlescent buttons, and a woven Saltire decorated tab which decorates the timeless spade patch pocket on the chest.
We’re introducing a selection of rich red, seaweed green, and cool blue tones into the t-shirt collection with the Barbour Sports t-shirt, a favourite season after season, this t-shirt is a true classic that you can layer up or style with simple chinos on laid-back weekends. It’s crafted from single jersey cotton, features a durable, ribbed crew neckline and the Barbour crest sewn proudly across the chest for a branded look.
The Tartan Pique polo shirt is a mainstay in the collection which features all the hallmarks of the classic. A tonal ribbed polo collar branded two-button placket with accent stitching and a signature Barbour tartan placket lining, all form the ultimate everyday polo with our signature touch. This season, earthy tones deep reds, moody blue hues and earthy green hues are introduced to take you through the cooler months tucked into chinos or layered up with your favourite jeans for an easy everyday look.
This collection is designed for you to rely on to form your everyday wardrobe. Pieces you can throw on with your favourite denim, or layer up with your Barbour jacket on colder days throughout the winter, and know you can wear for any occasion. Take a look at the collection, invest in your favourites and create your capsule Barbour wardrobe this autumn-winter.
