I decided to try this a couple of other Barbours for this season. The blazer got my attention as it was an unusual offering, so i just had to get one. My brief review. Pros Its slim fit, a relative term, but slim fit for sure by Barbour standards! It even calls itself slim fit on the label. There is some darting and even mild waist suppression! Its made in England. No waxy smell, but its waxed cotton for sure. Insulated for mild cool weather, should work with shirt till the weather hits 50 or so. Excellent wind protections, esp as it closes to neck, collar/lapels lined with moleskin. My XL fit very similar to RLPL 46L. Button down front flap pockets. One button and one zip interior pocket. Cons Center vent, but then its a frikkin waxed blazer! The vent has a button and is lined, so you can sit on a wet surface but butt will stay dry. Sleeve is a touch long. Comes with a small metal Barbour decal to put on Jacket. I think this is a gem of a blazer. 2 thumbs up from me @ the discounted price of $143 to my door (http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...d-For-Men.html) Use ALOCTOBER9 for 20% off.
