June Know What I Mean?!

It’s been another exciting month at Both Barrels HQ. Records have tumbled in the coffee-drunk-in-a-month stakes & plans long in the works are taking shape across our digital platforms.

Father’s Day

In the early part of June, we celebrated Father’s Day. In fact, we’ve dedicated all of this month to the Dads with our COOLDAD promotion. We’ve committed to offering 10% off everything in our web shop throughout the month so if you missed out on a gift (or something for yourself) you’ve still got time, but please act fast! The promotion runs until the 30thof June so just in time for pay-day before your summer break. Enter the code ‘COOLDAD’ at the checkout for 10% off on us J

Street scenes

Building on a fantastic test shoot in May, we ventured out again in June to create and capture a fresh batch of imagery which best depicts the brand and our city. As ever, we worked with real life situations which best connect our products with everyday contemporary Britain. We’ve noticed such a change in the commuting lifestyle and its demands that we wanted to spotlight how, where and why our product is engineered to compliment your busy working life.

We stepped out armed with cameras, lenses, a shiny reflector and two absolutely superb models. Great thanks to Reese and Andrew for making us look so good. This was a big step for the brand to take the story over ground and in to the Manchester sunshine (sort of; it was actually really windy on the day!).

We worked around the city centre in the same way that we all do in day-to-day life. We found some great spots, drank excellent coffee (shout out Pot Kettle Black in the Barton Arcade) and made the most of some absolute gem locations in the city.


Armed with the newly commissioned photography and a much deeper connection between ourselves, our customers and our brand ethos established over the 18 months since launch, we’ll be undertaking a visual overhaul of our website over the coming weeks. This will allow us to communicate in the best possible way and draw out the details of the insight embodied within our products.

Another exciting step forwards for Both Barrels as we continue to push ahead with contemporary British products, all of which are built from the ground up and around real-life requirements.

Keep up to date with everything over on Instagram where we’ll be sharing some behind the scenes bits as we go. Boom!
