About Gwilym Pugh

Despite being a young professional with a successful insurance company, Gwilym Pugh was left feeling unsatisfied with his quality of life. Working long hours at home led to a largely sedentary lifestyle that took a physical and mental toll on his health. Gwilym knew things had to change and this decision would go on to completely transform his life for the better.

Gwilym worked hard to get in shape and lead a healthier lifestyle, losing over 40kg over the course of seven years. Through his love of music, Gwilym pursued a career as a musician and set up his own band which introduced him to the world of performing. Through this, Gwilym began to dabble in modelling and by 2015, he moved to London after signing with a London modelling agency.

Working as a model afforded Gwilym the opportunity to travel around the world and gain a new perspective by meeting people from different walks of life. Wanting to do more with his life than be a model, Gwilym wanted to learn more about the world around him and really explore the places he was visiting. His newfound love of the outdoors and sense of adventure led him to enrol at university to undertake a degree in Environmental Science. With everything that Gwilym does, he wants to have a positive impact on the world around him and do his bit for the environment.

Barbour 55 Degrees North Collection

Designed to celebrate Barbour‘s rich heritage and long-standing association with the natural British landscape, the Barbour 55 Degrees North collection is a practical and functional collection designed to provide warmth and protection for exploring the great outdoors. Aligning with Gwilym’s values and rugged sense of style, the 55 collection is full of transitional menswear pieces that are inspired by the dramatic colours of the British landscape during the winter months.

The Barbour 55 range is defined by deep navys, earthy greens, muted cabernets and crisp whites contrasted with colour pop linings, with every piece of outerwear, everyday clothing and outfit accessories coming together to create a practical outdoor wardrobe. Inspired by hiking in the great outdoors, Barbour 55 offers a selection of dry wax cotton, waterproof breathable and baffle quilted jackets to provide plenty of warmth and protection during the colder months. Alongside the outerwear sit heavyweight knits, chunky fleeces, overlayers and overshirts to provide the ultimate layering system when exploring the outdoors.
