Mix the classic British heritage and quality of Barbour with a smarter, branded look that feels a touch more contemporary, and you get the Beacon Collection. Any Barbour Beacon t-shirt benefits from both parts of its own heritage. On the one hand, you have the excellent quality and pedigree of Barbour. On the other, you have a more modern, contemporary style. Many of the designs prominently feature the Beacon lighthouse at the mouth of the River Tyne, long associated with the Barbour brand. This is a signal that Barbour perceives Barbour Beacon to be an intrinsic part of this luxury British label that has been impressing wearers and watchers for decades.
