Our ethos is based on our team's desire to create a store that we and our customers, believe in.

Love care and detail are all key here. Our Cardiff shop is known for always having great new music, chilled staff with a laid back attitude, offering friendly and attentive service.

Brand lines are kept fresh with new stocks landing weekly, to ensure consistent and progressive retailing, with a twist approach that is unique to a young and vibrant profile.

Current brands include our favourite TWO STONED for example. We have exclusive rights for all of wales and continue to champion the classics.

Great value, great clothes and truly independent retailing in the castle quarter of the city.

This isn't a bland high street, clone. This is retail with character, charm and class.


Style rebel comes of age: the secret of the over 40 years of success.

In the 41 years since he opened his first indie fashion store, Robert Barker has become a champion of independent retail in Cardiff and a hero to young hip fashionistas in South Wales for generations.

Built on the desire to ensure independent new style is affordable and accessible in this part of the world.

Barker Cardiff has witnessed the evolution from the original Mods of the late 1960's, to the flares and denim of the 1970's, to the new romantics of the early 80's and the casuals of the mid 80's. In recent times, Brit pop of the 1990's and the eclectic mixture of all these influences, have been the order of the day since the turn of the millennium, and Barker has captured the best of these fashions for its loyal following.

All of the styles and music are important, and all have their day, but the constant is the ability of the retailer to reinvent for the next fashion or trend. Whilst others have sadly fallen away, Barkers has always kept current, on trend and on top.


Our philosphy guides our choice of brands, to ensure that we always hold stock of the most current and relavent products.

Vintage shirts from Two Stoned, cool casual sweats and denim from brands like SuperDry and G-Star typify the Barker Cardiff profile.
