To coincide with the latest Spring Summer 2014 Barbour stock hitting our stores and website we came across the latest instalment from our friends over at Highsnobiety TV, in which they take a visit to Barbour‘s South Shields headquarters.
Led by the brand’s Head of Outerwear, we touch upon Barbour’s 120-year heritage, the process of making a classic wax jacket, the importance of an in-house repair centre, and the future of the iconic clothier.
The video, just shy of 5 minutes is inter-cut with actual footage of a jacket being made, which we learn passes through the hands of 36 people from start to finish in the factory.
Since Barbour’s most iconic pieces are renowned for their ability to withstand rain, precision is key and most of the factory’s workers are long-standing.
