Sleek and subtle, Barbour is devoted to updating the country image through the centuries, by creating timeless pieces expertly crafted with quality and originality as the utmost priorities. Shuperb has carefully selected an excellent range sure to impress.
Renowned for their unique take on luxury, with a natural inclination towards honing a ‘country’ persona, Barbour has come to prominence after mastering their target market with a combination of high-quality fabrics and stand-out designs that command the viewer’s attention without relying on bright and bold colours. Barbour effortlessly navigates between sophistication and quirk, outputting products that are simultaneously under- and overstated.
Started in 1894 by John Barbour, part of Barbour’s allure has been its tartan-designed shoes, clothes, and accessories for both genders. Barbour’s designs have captured the essence of British country across a wide spectrum of society, from the quiet country-dweller to the Royal Family, earning three Royal Warrants which have commissioned Barbour to personally create pieces to dress three Royal Family members.
At the heart of Barbour’s creed lies expert craftmanship, which cannot be achieved through automation, which is why Barbour still operates part of their production in their own factory in Simonside, Northumbria. It is this unwillingness to give-up tradition that has gained the unwavering trust of their customers.
At the same time, Barbour has managed to avoid being mired in the past by consistently releasing updated versions of classic silhouettes like the chelsea boot. Take the Barbour KEEL mens leather boat shoes, for instance, which opts for an interesting combination of genuine leather and suede to achieve a subtle balance between two starkly different materials not usually combined in such a manner.
