Barbour is one of those rare brands that, despite a long, storied history, continues to maintain relevance in an ever-changing fashion landscape. Founded in the English coastal town of South Shields in 1894 by John Barbour, the brand was initially rooted in countrywear, but has since expanded to offer a full range of lifestyle clothing and accessories – from its iconic waxed cotton jacket to polo shirts and knitwear; boots and bags.
At the heart of Barbour’s ethos is ease-of-wear. The brand has gone to great lengths to ensure that its clothing fits perfectly and offers all-day comfort, no matter what your lifestyle has in store. Its comprehensive sizing guide factors in a range of body types and silhouettes, with three distinctive fits offered – slim fit, regular fit and relaxed fit – so that you can choose products in the fit that best suits you. Let’s break them down…
Barbour's most streamlined fit – the slim fit – offers a modern, fashion-forward silhouette. Its figure-hugging style is designed to flatter and produce as sleek an outline as possible. As the name suggests, the slim fit is best suited for slim body types.
The regular fit is the perfect all-round fit, ideal for all bodies and all occasions. It's sleek and stylish but still offers plenty of room for ease of movement. This is Barbour's most versatile fit that can be worn with anything.
Barbour's most versatile and practical fit is the relaxed fit, which is designed to suit all sizes, body types and ages. The generous silhouette of this fit allows for layering underneath and practical dressing, without compromising the classic style that Barbour is so renowned for.
It's important to note that Barbour's sizing differs between its five different collections – International, Lifestyle, Heritage, Sporting and Classic & Countrywear. The following size charts break down the exact sizes for jackets, knitwear, trousers and shirts across each of the different collections.
