It's the Christmas ad for Barbour clothing, but whether you want to be dress like him, be him or be with him, this protagonist really lifts us out of the frenzy of Christmas commercialism and transports us to a simpler, more wholesome place. You can almost smell the pine needles... No doubt the tree being man-handled by Scottish actor Sam Heughan - Jamie Fraser in hit TV series 'Outlander' - is one that's been specially grown on a UK plantation for the seasonal demand: Brits use 8 million pine or fir trees for Christmas decoration annually. Sam, who joined Barbour this year as its first global ambassador, was brought up in Galloway, Scotland, a short distance from the farm where John Barbour lived before moving across the border to set up the first Barbour store in South Shields, in the North East of England in 1894. Hang on a sec before you bring the tree in, Sam, I'm just ordering you a wee Barbour scarfie to go under it.... Oh, and look, they've got Tartan dog beds and coats for the dogs too! How cute is that?
