Sam Heughan named the first Global Brand Ambassador for Barbour


From Barbour

From the borders of Scotland and with a passion for the countryside, actor Sam Heughan is the ideal choice for our first Global Brand Ambassador.

Sam grew up in Galloway, a short distance from the farm where founder John Barbour lived, before moving across the border to set up the first Barbour store in South Shields, in the North East of England in 1894.

Currently the lead actor in the hit international TV series Outlander which is filmed on location in Scotland, Sam will collaborate with us on photoshoots and appearances.

Working with our design team Sam will also develop his own signature capsule collection incorporating our renowned exclusive tartans, which are based on the Ayrshire District Tartan from where the Barbour family originated in the 13th century.

Alongside his work on hit period drama series Outlander, Sam has received numerous fan generated accolades including the BBC America Anglophenia Man of the Year in 2014 and Entertainment Weekly’s EW-wy Best Actor – Drama in 2015.
