Amé Amé, an East Village rainwear and candy boutique, has recently been counted among the few authorized retailers of Barbour outerwear.
An English company founded in 1894 by John Barbour; J. Barbour and Sons has been making quality outerwear for 117 years. Barbour’s distinctive look has long called forth the regal charm of the English countryside. Their jackets feature a shell of thorn proof waxed cotton, smartly adorned with corduroy, and the warm cotton lining features the ancient Barbour tartan. With each passing decade Barbour’s apparel is proving to be as timeless as it is stylish. Barbour is honored to hold three Royal Warrants, and chairwoman Margaret Barbour was appointed a Dame Commander of the order of the British Empire.
Amé Amé is now one of only six authorized dealers in Manhattan, and is a rare example of a boutique location being authorized by Barbour. Amé Amé is quickly gaining notoriety for its commitment to high quality products, and dedication to customer service; so naturally, Barbour was a perfect fit for this up and coming East Village shop. Amé Amé is located at 318 E 9th st in Manhattan.
