The Barbour Heritage + collection delves into the British heritage brands’ archives with re-imagined designs for the modern day city dwellers, ramblers & waxed cotton lovers.

I think my own personal awareness of Barbour was probably sometime in the early 90s on Emmerdale with Jack Sugden having it large on his fictional Yorkshire farm. Although flat caps & sheep have played a massive role in Barbour’s success, it will always be about the subculture. As designer brands replaced the flamboyant sportswear in the mid to late 1980s, Barbour was one of them key “Casual” brands that has remained a mainstay some 40 years later. It was the waxed cotton wares with loads of functional pockets, rare trainers on feet and jeans that gave birth to a whole new terrace driven style. If you’re bang into your clothes just like me then you’ve probably had your fair share of Barbour bits in your wardrobe over the years with each season giving us more of its famous tartan toggery to talk about. 2024 now marks the 130th anniversary of the South Shields brand and what better way to celebrate their coming of age than this latest Barbour Heritage + collection.

Delving into the vast archives the Heritage +collection celebrates 130 years of waxed cotton wares reviving a curated collection of archive fabrics and silhouettes from the last 130 years. Re-imagined for the modern day wearer highlights of the collection include the utility inspired Transport jacket & vest which feature more pockets than you probably know what to do with & a lightweight durable cotton fabric. The Wax Deck jacket gives a nod to Barbour’s classic wax cotton styles with a unique 4oz Waxed Cotton and cord collar. There’s also utilitarian workwear like the Faulkner overshirt which boasts a hardwearing cotton twill fabric as well a classic military bomber silhouette looking like something straight out of the WW2 archives.
