The classic Barbour. Holder of multiple royal warrants (they've worn off the tag, but trust me, this jacket is legitimate). I bought this just over two years ago from Orvis. It's been a great coat, but I just don't wear it enough to keep it around. Classic green sage. Men's 48. Made in England. This is the Beaufort model: 2 handwarmer pockets, 2 bellows pockets, game pocket across the back and a Napoleon pocket for a wallet or phone on the left-hand side. Corduroy collar...
Ahem, to try and salvage this... Quote: Originally Posted by Sam Hober BdeRWest, We will order Grenadine Graza Fina silks in probably one week from now.

Quote: Originally Posted by Sam Hober With that said the New Year is around the corner and perhaps it is time to expand our grenadine horizons with a couple of dozen new ones? Actually, we already have a couple of dozen new pin dot and stripe designs in the works, so if we added the grenadine Garza Finas that I am thinking of it will closer to 4 dozen new grenadines. David, if you folks do start carrying garza fina, I'd be very interested in...

Edward VII's grandson, who was the Prince of Wales, abdicated in1936, after...
Quote: Originally Posted by comrade Young man, I am afraid that you are confusing the inventor or popularizer of the " Windsor Knot", Prince Albert Edward, who became King Edward VII and his father, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha, consort to Queen Victoria and known as " Prince Albert".
