Barbour Dept B
Barbour’s original ‘Department B’ was a dedicated area of the South Shields factory that specialised in customisation and repairs. Customers would send in their jackets with bespoke requests – from extra pockets to special reinforcements – and the expert team would alter the jacket accordingly, adding personal touches that were completely unique to each wearer.
Inspired by this aspect of Barbour’s heritage, the new Dept. B capsule takes its design cues from archive jackets with unusual customisations and interesting histories. The result is a collection that celebrates intricate tailoring and attention to detail, and blends it with the fashion-forward aesthetic synonymous with Barbour Heritage.
