The size fitting my body is too short in the arms. Fortunatley Barbour offers lengthening, repairs, and waxing. The cost is not that high but the wait can be annoying, 4-8 weeks here in Stockholm.
Be sure to try their local "cigars"
I had a friend over for dinner and managed to break two of my antique japanese plates. I dropped a cup on them while they were stacked and the corners chipped off. Both plates lost two pieces but the break is clean and the four broken off pieces are retrieved, no crushing. If I place the pieces back the break is practically seamless. How do I fix this?

I like the True Blood TV series
