In January, the Barbour team headed to the beautiful and picturesque setting of Crailing Hall, in Crailing on the Scottish Borders, to shoot our SS17 Shirt Department campaign. The day was spilt between two shoots, one of ourselves, and the other for our media partner, leading men’s lifestyle magazine, GQ.
We arrived early onto the set to ensure everything was ready for Sam’s arrival to the first location. It was straight to hair and makeup before we grabbed some breakfast, as we all prepped for the day’s shooting. The morning was spent with the GQ team in the nearby Kelsos, then soon after this, Sam was transferred to our location, ready for his latest Barbour shoot!
Our SS17 Shirt Department film focused on Sam’s best friend, his chocolate Labrador, who was following him around the house as he got ready (lead in mouth) hoping he would be taken for a walk… Sam finally gave in and they went for a walk by the river on the grounds of the hall. We shot in 4 different locations around the grounds; 3 around the interior of the house, and outside by the trickling river – which made for the perfect outdoor setting.
Due to the time of the year, we finished rather quickly, as we was losing light. Sam was tremendous throughout the day, ensuring we got all the stills and video footage that was needed. No shoot would be complete without a dog, and we were very lucky to have Tia on set – a beautiful chocolate Labrador who adored Sam, and can be seen in nearly all of our SS17 Shirt Department images. You can read Tia’s #BarbourDogs account of the shoot here.
In case you missed our last Shirt Department blog, we caught up with our Menswear Designer, Andy McMillan to take a closer look at the checks in this season’s SS17 Shirt Department Collection.

Sam made an appearance yesterday at the Piaget And The Weinstein Company Host A Cocktail Party. He looked so handsome and more importantly happy! I will not post on Sam’s personal life (mainly who he is dating) and I think we should all respect his privacy. He looks genuinely happy and that makes me happy.
I’m happy to share these with you all! Thanks to my awesome friend Mary I have added a few high quality photos of Sam and Caitriona filming together for season 3 of Outlander! You can see photos that just feature Caitriona on my other fansite Caitriona Balfe Fan. ENJOY!
