The Barbour Ursula Collection
The Barbour Ursula collection is a feminine take on Barbour's military heritage. In the 1940s, Captain George Philips of the submarine HMS Ursula adapted Barbour's one piece motorcycle suit into a jacket and trousers. Named the Ursula suit, it became standard issue for all submariners during the Second World War. Celebrating this heritage, the Ursula collection provides warmth, protection and plenty of sophistication and style. Tailored wool military coats, hoods and sherpa linings feature strongly. Jackets are packed with design details. Cable panelled knitwear in supersoft lambswool with waffle knit and checked shirts complete the collection.
The Barbour Estate Tweed Collection
Tweed originated in Scotland in the 18th century amongthe small farmers and land labourers. Traditionally a coarse cloth, it was only in the 19th century that it was adopted by the landowners when it became fashion to commission special tweeds known as Estate Tweeds for the owners and staff living and working on the Estates. A hard working country cloth, the Estate Tweed provided excellent camouflage for gamekeepers and workers enabling them to blend into the surrounding colours of the countryside. The Estate Tweed collection celebrates Barbour's long association with tweed, taking its inspiration from Barbour's heartland, the cuontry of Northumberland and the rich colours that make up the Northumbrian landscape.
