Summer –> Autumn

So, that was summer then? And what a beauty she’s been! At BB HQ it’s mostly been very hot, sometimes too hot and quite often involved some awesome solar power behind our ongoing plans, developments, partnerships and future scoping.

The summer months have provided a great platform from which to review the operations to date, enjoy some slightly less manic times and beginning focussing on planning our way ahead. The best part is that everything we do is directly informed by our experience, customer feedback and reaction to the brand/product in the 18 months since launch.


In the last few weeks we’ve been working on a Field Ops concept which represents further opportunity to directly connect with our community, gain insight in to our products’ use & better understand what’s going on out there in the wider working world.

Business travel, working lives, commuter priorities and the intrinsic kit we’re all using on a day-to-day basis change very quickly. Our Field Ops unit is being assembled to ensure we’re in touch, informed & connected across the board. If you’d like to be involved in product trials with the Field Ops team, please contact hello@thisisbothbarrels.comfor more information.


This month we’ve launched our partnership with curated online retail giant, Not On The High Street. Having been spotted by their expert merch team, we were thrilled to be invited to partner with them on their fantastic offering of independent labels, blazing our own trials.

This represents a real mark of quality to be associated with a channel of such high calibre. We’re excited to develop our business together, you can see our page here –


In the background, we’ve been busy sourcing new fabrics, components and trims for a developing range of new pieces to add to the BB range. Built again from the ground up and informed by insight gained after 18 months of operations, we’re working towards additional product specifications.

Next month we’ll be reporting on further details of fabric specs, pattern cutting development and technical innovation. This project is coming to the boil nicely and we’re excited about what’s coming next in the BB family.

Now that we’re heading in to autumn, let’s embrace our mid-layers and outerwear and of course; whichever extras you’re carrying, we’ve got your back 🙂
