post #1276 of 2699

Someone mentioned earlier in this thread that it was difficult to find pictures of actual people wearing the Sapper. Here's a couple of mine. For reference, I'm 5'8 and usually wear  a 38. The Sapper (olive) is a small, and fits comfortably. The insulation is slightly thicker than I expected.

The shoreman is a tokito. They made it in this waxed olive version and also in a tan non waxed version

I can see from this thread that I defn need to size down from my usual 40s/M sportcoat size, what size would you advise?
thanks in advance.
I believe the Surtees is also a heritage fit and I also had to size up one.

Oh great, as I suspected.  I've seen the tan non-waxed version, but not this one.  One more question for you:  is it AW11?

Yes, the Shoreman is To Ki To... I wonder, if I might ask, where are you seeing it not listed as such?

I recently bought a driving jacket I was having some concerns about. Definitely looked like the To Ki To Driving Jacket, but I couldn't find any To Ki To patch on it. I actually started a thread on it.

I'm curious if this one doesn't have the patch either.

Looks good on you. The weight surprised me as well. I eventually found one of the disco'd Flyweight Sappers. It has no insulation and uses a light 4 oz waxed cotton. It's perfect for 3 season wear, even in summer. I have a Beaufort w/liner for the colder months.

Looking at yours the heavier weight allows it hang well on you. The lightweight drapes more. I find the lightweight perfect for all but dead of winter. I was working a charity event for work last year in June and was outside from 8am to 5pm in a pouring rain. The flyweight Sapper kept me co,pletely dry and cool for the day. Most folks were wearing plastic ponchos or nylon rainwear. They were soaked inside and out by mid day. The waxed cotton impressed me.

Interesting, thanks for the comments. The regular Sapper is great, but will definitely be too hot for the summer, and it doesn't quite have the drape that you mention getting from the Flywight Sapper. I wish I could track one of those flyweights down. Do you think they're the essentially the same as the new Tailored Sapper

Hi guys!

 

I've won a competition and as a result of that I have 1000 GBP to spend on clothes and "stuff" from Barbour.

 

I can select from everything that's in stock at http://www.barbourbymail.co.uk/Mens-Barbour.top.

 

Any ideas?

 

I was thinking of the following jackets:

 

I use mostly chinos/jeans, some times wool slacks, but mostly I wear jeans and chinos, OCBDs and v-/roundnecks over that if that is to any assistance in helping me picking out items. And I'm not really thinking that I will purchase all four jackets mentioned above, but if I can't get money in the bank I might as well just max out my 1000£.

Sounds a decent selection if you're sure you want to spend it all on outerwear. If the sale is still on I'd look to see whether you can stretch the cash further that way. Their knits are decent, and the shirts and trousers are pretty good for the price.

I just wanted to add my recent experience with barbour, and specifically the to ki to line. Just to preface, my jacket size is 40R and i wear a medium slim in button downs from jcew and a medium extra slim at brooks brothers. Waist is 32-33.

 

I bought the mountain parka in size L a few months ago and ended up returning it because it was too wide for my liking in the waist. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, i got a good deal on the military jacket in sage,so i purchased it in size L also. It arrived and i was again a little disappointed with the fit. It fit pretty good in the chest, but it was boxy from the rib cage down. With the lining removed it was a little big in the chest, especially since i rarely wear more than 2 layers.

 

Frustrated, i called the Barbour store i where i bought the jacket and asked them to measure the shoulders of the medium they had in stock. The measurement they gave me was pretty close to the size large i had in my hand, so i bought the medium. The medium arrived today and i'm pretty pleased with the fit. Much slimmer in the body and still fine in the shoulders. Sleeves could be a tad longer, but i think i'm just used to having coats that are too big.

 

Long story short, if you usually wear a slim in shirts, etc. and don't have super gangly limbs, you may want to try your normal size in the to ki to line, at least in the jackets that tend to run a little bigger (those with zip-in liners?). I'm still waiting on the sports jacket i preordered in large, but i'm really interested to see if there are any notable differences in sizing within the to ki to line.

post #1289 of 2699

do you guys know anywhere that has barbour on sale right now? kind of need a jacket in xs

post #1290 of 2699
aaron's of eastham usually has some on sale. their website is terrible, but you can look through and see if it says they have something. I would suggest placing a phone order though, particularly if you are counting on the order coming through, as the stock doesn't update automatically. I have purchased from them and they are legitimate.
