Barbour - Celebrating 120 years.

120 years ago, Barbour was founded in the port of South Shields by John Barbour, a Scotsman who saw a need for waterproof, reliable, hardwearing outerwear amongst working communities of the North East.

Since then, Barbour has continued to thrive on the unique values of the British countryside, and now offers a wide range of eyewear featuring time honoured styles, inspired by the brand's heritage.

Barbour's eyewear collection is a testament to the founding principles of quality, attention to detail, fitness for purpose and durability established by John Barbour more than 100 years ago.
