Barbour Gold Standard represents the pinnacle of our offering. It celebrates the expert craftsmanship and design knowledge we have gathered over 126 years. Barbour Gold Standard takes inspiration from some of the best known wax and quilt styles from our archive and elevates them to a ‘gold standard’ through the use of wax, tweed and oiled leather fabrics, updated trims, linings and buttons; the focus is on achieving the very highest level of luxury detailing.

Paul Wilkinson, Global Marketing and Commercial Director, Barbour.

Corduroy collars, corozo buttons, tartan linings and leather trims, the hallmarks of a heritage Barbour are reborn and re-imagined in their signature waxed cotton and quilted jackets as the design team looks back on the 125 year old archive to celebrate this landmark anniversary. Hand crafted by artisans at their South Shields factory in the North East of England, this Gold Standard sub-line of truly luxe creations is bond-approved, counting Daniel Craig among its early fans.

Quality and durability doesn’t come much better than Barbour. In fact, jackets found in the Barbour archive dating from 1910 are still in excellent condition today. This is down to the complex and skilled construction (an average jacket has over 160 parts) and the high quality fabrics that when cared for correctly can outlive their owner, offering warmth and protection for generations.

I am thrilled to be working with Barbour. It’s a brand I have admired for a long time and the Barbour Gold Standard collection is outstanding. I was fortunate enough to have the protection and warmth of these jackets during our shoot in Scotland.
