Their popularity soared instantaneously and they produced their first mail order catalogue in 1908. By 1917 they were receiving 75% of their orders from this catalogue from places worldwide such as Chile, Hong Kong and South Africa. As John Barbour’s sons took over the Company he unfortunately passed away in 1918.
Duncan Barbour launched a fantastic motorcycling range in 1934 as he was a keen on that specific activity and this was a huge hit with the public. Suits from this range were worn by almost every British International team from 1936 to 1977 when they ended this collection. Duncan got called out to war leaving his wife and his brother Malcom Barbour in charge where they designed a suit which was worn by members of the Submarine Service. In 1982 Barbour clothing received their second Royal Warrant by the Queen with Nancy Barbour as chairman of the company and John Barbour as managing director.
