 I tried it on in-store and boy am I glad I waited to see it in person vs. ordering it online. The collar I am indifferent about, the real shame for this jacket is the cut on the body. It has a sort 'bell' shape in that is slowly flares out towards the bottom of the jacket. It is not a 'straight' cut at all. It really gives the jacket a weird drape as the material is it made out of is fairly rigid so you end up wearing something that somehow resembles a dress. To top it...
 Here is one more for your browsing pleasure:  This gentleman certainly seems to be happy about the collar. I think it looks a little 'odd' in the first picture but looks like short point collar here.
Has anyone had any experience with the Bankside model yet? It looks like a pretty nice coat that captures some of the Barbour heritage looks while updating the actual functionality of their jackets. I have wanted a Barbour for a while but always had two issues:   1. The fit, I am 6'6" and there is no way the sleeves would be long enough. 2. I am still not sure I could deal with the 'funk' of a waxed coat.   The Bankside seems to eliminate both of those issues, the fit...
I think the main difference between a lot of Mens and Womens products is the scent and sometimes the potency (this I can't verify obviously). I have heard one explanation that Women's skin is thinner and thus their skincare products are not as strong/harsh, but really when you start getting into the restorative products they are quite harsh. If you don't need excessive Oil control (Mens skin tends to be oilier on average) or some other more Manly (?) problem I don't see...
 Those are the exact shoes I was hoping to get. Enjoy them! They are truly unique!
What size are those? He had a pair up earlier on eBay that sold at Auction for fairly high price.   I am rather jealous of them. 
 A former co-worker had one of the bridle leather briefcases from them and I was always jealous of it. There is usually a reason why a smaller company like them stay in business for so long (especially before the internet!).
 Wow! You have three posts in two years and yet manage to respond to the comment above yours in 4 hours?!?! (Also please note I know I also have almost no posts, just impressed with the quickness of us lurkers.) Also Frank Clegg stuff is gorgeous and a very good value.
I just wish they would make a "Long" or "Tall" cut of their shirts. Their stuff is great it is just not made for anyone with above average height.   Those flannel shirts look terrific and will be well suited for Canadian Fall/Winter.
 Just curious Nick who the shipping company was that handled your original import into Canada. The duties on my two pairs were not nearly as high. Also experiences exactly like what you have endured are what is stopping me from order a few more pairs from Meermin. I realize that some of this is out of their control but it really is unfortunate that you have to accept some potentially huge risks in order to deal with Meermin. Add in the uncertainty over how some of the...
