That Dapper Chap looks at the latest campaign from Barbour and introduces us to some ‘Barbour People’
As the good folk at Barbour rightly continue to celebrate their 120 year success, they have turned their attention to the people that matter to them most, not their highly skilled design team or their sales people but their fans and customers. These are the People like you and I who value everything that Barbour offer, and who appreciate the heritage that comes with such a well loved and truly established British brand.

For the past 3 years Barbour have been photographing ‘Barbour People’ and are releasing a series of videos showcasing the stories’ of those with unique and varied styles.
The first star of their Barbour People films is David: a singer/songwriter in two bands — Six Toes and Stranger Or The Plane — and a talented composer. So talented, that Barbour asked him to write the score for their series of shorts; in fact you’ll see him doing that very particular task in this film!
Barbour also has a dedicated Tumblr page where people can share their own Barbour story and upload their own style: http://barbourpeople.tumblr.com/ It would be great to work together on a feature, I would be happy to provide more detail and content if this is something you would be interested in.

Our next Barbour person is Steve (and his dog Hoolie). Steve is a photographer from my home county of Suffolk. Steve’s camera is an extension of himself — he finds it gives him reason to explore; an impetus for adventure. It’s also a profoundly simple and effective way of meeting and getting to know other people. A self-confessed ‘nosy person’, Steve travels the world taking photographs. He was recently in Mexico, and ended up meeting a group of cowboys for several weeks, documenting their lives.

So, don your Barbour jacket and wear it with pride, maybe you’ll be snapped on the street by the team and featured on the Barbour Tumblr page just like Fergus and the guys above and all the other ladies and gents that they’ve featured so far! When you are drop me a line!
