Barbour waxed cotton jacket process

Quality Meets Quality

In 1894 John Barbour founded his company in South Shields, England with a focus on sturdy, functional “wet weather wear.” This season we’re proud to collaborate with this storied, family-owned maker on an exclusive version of our Higgins Mill boot and one of their celebrated jackets, each built with a commitment to incredibly durable materials and exceptional craftsmanship that both our brands share.

Braving the Elements for Over a Century

Barbour’s signature waxed cotton jackets immediately found a dedicated fanbase among anyone spending time outdoors. Over the decades motorcycle racers, naval submarine crews and the British royal family have all relied on their outerwear to protect them from the damp and cold. Today the brand’s gear is synonymous with the rugged beauty of the English countryside.

A Lasting Commitment to Quality

It’s not just the dependable materials that set Barbour’s styles apart. Their waxed cotton jackets are still handcrafted in South Shields and can be either rewaxed at home or sent back to the company for rewaxing and repairs. It’s that dedication to lasting value and authenticity that makes the company’s gear the ideal companion to our iconic, recraftable footwear.

Remastering Our Icons with Legacy Makers

In honor of our 100th anniversary this year, we teamed up with a partner with a reputation for authenticity and integrity to match our own. The two limited-edition styles we designed together are a true testament to the lasting quality and proven functionality of Barbour's exceptional outwear and our iconic footwear.
