Barbour’s Beacon collection incorporates heritage silhouettes that draw inspiration from the brand’s founder, John Barbour’s roots in South Shields and its trademark Herd Groyne beacon. Utilising the factor of practicality, the Beacon collection depicts the fundamentals of weatherproofing seen from garments worn by mariners at the South Shields harbour. From beginnings with an ethos of the best in quality outdoor clothing, the range evolved into an interpretation of refined cuts, tailoring and features built for the needs of different working, sporting and leisure pursuits. This factor had been focal in its development, with the implementation of its own customers needs, as well as Barbour’s own practical experience. An original tagline that stated 'Anywhere, always, Beacon oilskins keep you dry', the brand has retained that mindset of providing their loyal customers with a fine-tuned product that offers alternatives to the traditional designs, details and practicality of outdoor wear. Still to this day since its introduction in 1908, the Beacon brand retains the deep set roots of its founder, with unique interpretations of modern silhouettes joining the roster.
