The Barbour x Brompton C Line Explore comes in a custom Amble Sands paint finish – said to be “inspired by the beautiful stretch of shoreline near Barbour's base in South Shields” – with gold decals.
The range also includes T-shirts (£46.95) and several bags. The Barbour x Brompton Wax Holdall (£199), for example, is a 24-litre bag that’s designed to fit securely on the front of a Brompton.
“It unclicks in seconds and can be carried anywhere,” says Brompton. “Made by Barbour in their robust and durable 10oz wax cotton fabric, it features their distinctive classic tartan lining and a leather handle grip for an elegant and practical look.”
