Barbour History

Barbour History from

The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the region, with Barbour’s headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside with over 100,000 jackets processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations each year.

In 2004, Barbour began to work with Lord James Percy, in the design and marketing of its flagship shooting clothing range - the Northumberland range. Technically advanced and highly acclaimed in 2005, the Northumberland Range won the Shooting Industry Award for best clothing product, and more recently, the Linhope 3-in-1 won the Shooting Industry Award for best clothing product, 2008. More recently he was involved, alongside Vice Chairman Helen Barbour, in designing the new Barbour Sporting collection launched for Autumn Winter 2011.

Barbour now has 11 of its own retail shops in the UK and a presence in over 40 countries worldwide including the United States, Germany, Holland, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand and Japan.

There are now over 2,000 products across the two seasons and the collections now cater for Men, Ladies and Children. Broadening out from its countrywear roots, today the heritage and lifestyle clothing brand produces clothing that is designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe. As well as jackets and coats, the Barbour wardrobe includes trousers, shirts, socks, knitwear and a range of accessories.

Nevertheless, in whichever area the company now operates, it remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British Countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.

Bargain Winter Items.....

I love a bargain, but i always think a sale is only a bargain if you are going to use it!
I have bought so many things in the past 'just because its cheap' rather than something i know i will get my wear out of.
With this in mind i have listed a few Summer Sale items that i think are very useful!
I think they can be worn in any weather ........ wear them loose for Spring/Summer or layer in Autumn/Winter.

£125, Sale £62.50
Wear either wraped or open over a vest or dress on those cooler summer evenings
or layer it up over long sleeves in the Winter 

£105, Sale £92.50
Same appies to the above cardigan on how to wear

£107, Sale £53.50
I think this dress would look just as nice layered over a long sleeve t-shirt or polo neck jumper with tights and boots

£149, Sale £74.50
This cardigan does not contain any wool, which means it is light enough for summer, but could also be worn over a long sleeve 
£167, Sale £82.50
Wear over a short or long sleeve top, dress or shirt for warmer or cooler climates

£109, Sale £34.80
Shown with a scarf and over jeans or wear as a dress or over legging 
£38, Sale £19
Wear layered over winter knits or loose over a t-shirt

There is lots more stock at Cristal Online.
Wear now, when on holiday or keep for winter, i am sure you will be able to find something you like that will be useful to you!!
