Barbour Waxed Jackets



Barbour’s long relationship with waxed cotton began back in 1894 when founder John Barbour opened a shop in the Market Place in South Shields in the North East of England selling practical and hard-wearing oilskins providing protection from the worst of the North Sea weather. 

From the Bedale, the Beaufort and the Border, the three jackets that made Barbour a household name in the 1980s to the more recent additions of the Beadnell, Ashby, Corbridge and Sapper, these classic all-round styles continue to be much loved best sellers that will never let you down.
