Barbour Windsor is located on the corner of Peascod street and Windsor High Street. It is one of the original Barbour UK stores and overlooks Windsor castle. The tourist spot is the perfect place to pick up a classic Barbour Jacket, the store stocks a range of the traditional & sporting lines, as well as a selection of wellies, shoes and travel bags. The store was refurbished in 2011, and now stocks a range of beautifully quilted Jackets, Gilets, Waterproofs & Casual wear.
Although the more contemporary lines which include the Barbour Steve McQueen collection and recent Tokito (Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket) were unavailable on our visit, Barbour staff informed us that they could order any item from the online Barbour web catalog to be delivered to the store – Good to know for those that want to save on home delivery costs.
The Beacon Heritage Jacket created quite a buzz when first released in 2012; the design was a collaboration between Barbour and Japanese designer Tokihito Yoshida. Made from sylkoil wax, and featuring a poachers pocket, removable hood and tartan lining, it later made an appearance in Bond flick SkyFall, which as you can imagine, only made it more popular. From the Steve McQueen collection, the Sunblast is our personal favourite, a pre-aged Jacket emblazoned with a vintage american flag above the angled chest pocket.
The Barbour Winter Range is released every August, but for those that can’t make up their minds, gift cards are also available in store.
