The Barbour story began in 1894 in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains at the helm, with Barbour's headquarters still located in Simonside, South Shields, England.
Although the company sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand at the factory in Simonside. Each year over 100,000 jackets are processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations.
Tom Joule began selling clothes at outdoor events in Great Britain over 25 years ago. Tom realised that his customers were a bright and colourful bunch, but their clothes were quite the contrary.
Since then Joules has fast become one of Britain’s best-loved country style brands. Based on Market Harborough, where they’ve been from day one, their talented team of individuals work across everything from print to production, all signing from the same hymn sheet to make the ordinary extraordinary
Dubarry of Ireland
In 1937 a co-operative company was established to provide employment in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Ireland’s glorious West Coast. The company was named Dubarry, after a famous French courtesan. Dubarry of Ireland’s beginnings were in the design and manufacturing of fine leather shoes.
Dubarry set out to design the most famous country boot of all – The Signature Dubarry Galway Boot.
With a closet directly inspired by the world of sports and a style coloured and inherited from polo and jockey helmets, the fashion house has become the natural partner for some of the most prestigious sporting events. Including the likes of the jumping world of Versailles in equestrian sports.
People new to the story don’t realise that The Horse was established in 2009 by Scott and Gabrielle as a leather footwear label over a coffee one sunny Sunday afternoon, after seeing a man walk past wearing beautiful brown leather shoes and no socks. These staple styles, solidly made, quickly became a favourite of the well-heeled.
One of the biggest milestones happened in the Spring of 2013, when The Horse launched ‘The Original’ collection of timepieces, which have since become a mainstay of the brand.
Together with a small team, they create classic, go-to pieces that don’t become obsolete with the seasons.
