Managing director, Barbour
Still riding the heritage trend’s unstoppable wave, Barbour continues to be the darling of indies and department stores alike. Visit any high street store’s outerwear department this winter and you’ll lose count of the unashamedly similar waxed and quilted jackets on show. But the pragmatic Buck is not resting on his laurels, as he continues to evolve Barbour into a fully rounded lifestyle brand. New ranges include an excellent Steve McQueen collection and a push on new knitwear and shirting options, all of which means the brand is looking better than ever.
