In 1980, Barbour produced their first short, lightweight, Thornproof jacket, the Bedale. Originally designed for riding, the Bedale is favoured by many Britons, from royalty to pop icons.
Dame Margaret Barbour designed the Bedale with equestrian practicalities in mind – with a shorter length, tailored classic fit, rear vents and the essential Nylon inner ‘drip-strip’ that prevented wetness from horses seeping into the jacket. Made with mediumweight 6oz waxed cotton and fully interactive with optional zip-in thermal liners and hoods, the Bedale is a brilliant all-year-round jacket.
The classic elements of a Barbour jacket are all included, with a brass two-way ring-pull zip and studded ‘Stormfly’ front, two large bellows pockets and two moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets, and the traditional corduroy collar with studs for a hidden throat flap.
Österlen, southern Sweden; its vast glowing greenly lit fields and roaring shores lined with stern prow stones, shape the invigorating backdrop of The White Briefs. The illusive design studio is tucked away behind a calm stretch of raw grassland, a meticulous crisp space, undisturbed by the semantics of society.
The White Briefs only incorporates sleek (GOTS) certified fabrics, carefully sourced and selected from local eco-communities, thus building a profound and intelligently supportive production line.
This innovative encounter between exquisite timeless tailoring, sleek materials, austere colours and ecologically integrated social production, allows for an enigmatic aspiration to incorporate sartorial excellence into our intense daily endeavours.
The White Briefs, a perpetual ingenious alteration of classic tailoring and regular functionality.

Mr William Green founded Grenson in 1866 in Northamptonshire, UK, making high-quality men’s shoes; he was the first producer in the world to use the Goodyear welting construction method, which is now a hallmark of all well-made British shoes, including the ones Grenson produces today.
