Someone on the forums suggested that Barker Blacks are being made in India. Is that not the case? What about the regular Barkers?

Same I think.
Here is a comparison shot against my acorn coloured Archdales. Different medallion as you quite rightly point out.
I love the oxblood colour.

I have contacts at Barkers and saw these being made in the Earls Barton factory along with regular Barkers shoes. They have an impressive purpose built building in a large plot of land.

Thanks to EU laws, manufactures can 90% assemble products across 7 seas - then bring them to the continent for finishing and country of origin tag application
The rumor that BB has been importing its higline of shooz from India has been floating around for years.
