IIRC around $17.  You should check with them, but USPS works fine for me.  Dont' mess with a lot of fancy shipping options either.  USPS guys were pretty honest about timeframes and what tracking actually gets you.

That includes $6 for their brokerage fee.

 

I've had 3 DHL packages from them (Oi Polloi and DHL) this year and not a single charge from DHL.  Knocking on wood.

Barbour Experts:

Just picked up this sweet jacket for winter. It was brand new for $59.

It's missing a button on the sleeve, contacted barbour via email to see if they can send me a replacement. Anyone had any luck with getting a free replacement button for their quilted items?

Also I read that barbour does alterations, granted I didn't purchase it directly from them, think they would be able to alter it for free? Just wondering before I take it to my local tailor. Not sure how good barbour's customer service is.

Oh I believe you. It's always a crapshoot.
I ordered something from them in May and didn't get hit with customs.

Yeah, I suppose.  It's the stuff from End that I get nailed on.

Where'd you get it for that price?

While I always liked the smell there were a lot of people who were irritated/offended by it.
Though I have to say I don't know if recent Thornproof jackets still smell because I had mine years ago and if I recall correctly I read somewhere that Barbour changed to a new non-smell wax since then.

I've had my Beaufort for about a month now and it seems like the smell has already subsided. I didn't mind the smell when it was new though.

I didn't think alterations were free either way, but maybe I'm wrong.

^ Yeah probably not. I'll call and see how much it'd cost to alter the sleeves. Sucks that they're working buttons as I need it shortened a bit

Thanks man. I was on the fence between what size to buy. Medium looked SF approved but the large was more practical...but who buys anything for practicality icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifsatisfied.gif

There's some info about it here: http://www.barbour.com/us/repairs-reproofing-us
 

I sent an email to Barbour.Repairs.US@Barbour.com about taking in a large Tokito Mountain Parka which fit well in the shoulders but was tent-like otherwise. A nice lady by the name of Lisa Wigger responded 5 days later. After some correspondence I decided to take off about 4" along the bottom hem and 2" right under the pit to give the jacket some taper. It was a bit pricey ($90), but the alteration is a bit more involved as they'll be doing it along the side-seams to maintain use of the rear game pocket. It also includes a rewax of the new seams they put in.

 

I'm supposed to receive it in 3 weeks or so and will post pics in this thread when I do.

i've just got my new barbour, apart from wearing it under the rain, any way you guys would recommend to speed the breaking-in? ie, placing it under the sun for a good few hours etc

I'll be interested to see how it looks because i had the exact same experience with the mountain parka. I absolutely love the jacket, but it was gigantic in from the chest down. Sizing down to a medium would have made it too constricted in the shoulders. I ended up reluctantly returning it.

Down most of the time, but if it's raining/blowing a gale, up it comes.

Which I knew about Oi Poloi before pulling the trigger with Bloomingdales,,,

Sylkoil definitely visually ages quicker due to the slight peaching of the cotton. Some people find that it's not as tough with thorns/barbed wire. For me I prefer sylkoil...

Thanks for the info. I just sent them an email RE taking in my TOKITO Beacon Heritage. Hopefully ill get a response soon, but unlikely because they are closed for the holidays from Dec 19-Jan 7 and have stated on their website not to send any garments to them during this time.
Cheers,
