Yes bark. I'll give you the lowdown on Monday or Tuesday when I get hold of it. Good luck with your quest!

I checked out the store on Halstead in Lincoln Park today. They have a very nice selection in all sizes. More of the contemporary styles than Orvis. The salesperson was very helpful. Found out I really like the look and fit of the Enfield.

Hi guys,

just posting up to say we've put some of our SS13 Barbour Tokito gear online with our new website - anyone who is a fan of Barbour by David Wood should keep an eye out here - we're merging our e-commerce to clean up back end headaches a bit.

We'll be shooting these on bodies soon but the stock photos will have to do for now. As always feel free to PM me or email Rori with any questions (or international inquiries; the webstore currently only works for the states)

Hey Portland Dry Goods

Change your website. Barbour has a "R" in it.

Received the Blast today. It has some great detailing - I'm really liking the cord collar and throat latch. I would say if fits in the same way as most Tokito, in that its slim. I'm glad that I ordered a size up although I can imagine others would like to go tts.

Stuarts London deducted 20% VAT, shipped for free (Fedex Priority) and I avoided all import tax / duties. Overall, an awesome experience.

I think this will be a great transitional piece - it's getting too warm now in NYC for the Sports Jacket and I think this should be perfect for Spring / Autumn.

Apologies for the crappy pic...

I received my Red Chili Blast around 6 weeks ago and went through the exact same procedure - Stuarts of London.  Unbelievable service and as a new customer an additional 10% off with coupon code.

 

I am wearing it now (an hour outside of NYC) and in the Chili Red color I also see it as a great fall piece.

 

Too bad about the demise of Tokito - I have several pieces and enjoy them all

So I wore the Blast today to work. Unfortunately, it seems that NYC has gone from damnable winter straight into damnable summer. Not sure how much of a springtime we're going to get, and ultimately how much I'm going to be able to wear this thing before the autumn...

ffffuuuu.gif climate change!

Warm weather only sticking around for the week and we're back down to 50s on the weekend, so you may still get a chance to wear your Blast. Went sans jacket today.

Regarding Blast sizing, I am an M in classic Barbour and a 40 Beaufort. I have the waxed cotton Tokhito sports jacket (tweed patches on shoulders and elbows) in XL that the shoulders fit perfectly in. Should I stick to the XL, or would a L suffice?

I would think the L would be fine.  The To Ki To you have, the Sporting Quilt I believe (the olive one with the herringbone patches), ran small IMO.  I have the full herringbone version and the L was fine while that olive version was much snugger.  Had to sell my L. 

 

End's measurements on the SS13 To Ki To look off.  Oi Polloi's differ and I'm guess their's are more accurate.

I own an English made Barbour Beaufort. Love it. The only question and drawback - its bell-shape, so if it gets windy it gets cold around the waist. Is it done on purpose? A slimmer size would have been too tight in shoulders and too short in sleeves. Thanks

I also decided to take the plunge with the Blast jacket in the Bark color. Seems like a good deal and a great jacket for the warmer days. I just hope it fits.

I cant imagine an XL translating to their mainline Medium. the L ought to be sufficient, that sporting tweed must have been particularly snug.
