Made for the outdoors, heritage brand Barbour has been making clothing to be worn in British weather for over 100 years. Their icon, of course, is the signature wax jacket – which continues to attract new audiences and explore new styles year after year.

Napapijri

When it comes to outdoor clothing brands, Napapijri knows exactly what they’re doing. A brand born in 1987, in the shadow of Mont Blanc, Napapijri has been inspired by expeditions and explorers since its beginnings. 

Napapijri is an Italian brand, with a Norwegian flag for its logo and a Finnish name – which may seem a little confusing. Turns out, it’s a purposeful move from the brand – whose whole ethos is about defying labels and transcending boxes.

It was actually founded by Massimo Rossetti, a former member of the 210th Rescue Squadron of the United States Air Force. The brand is fittingly named Parajumpers, after the group of highly trained personnel who carry out rescue missions in extreme conditions.
