For example, this is the Beaufort Classic Sylkoil in olive from countryattire.com

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Yes, it is true that brand new, the olive color is dark. But there are only two types of green that this jacket comes in, olive and sage. And it is most certainly not sage. See this picture of sage (it's a deep forest, almost blue-ish green, unlike the olive):

 

 

 

I think what you are seeing is terms of color variation is a product of age and wear. The olive sykoil color is the one that tends to change over time, not sage. See this picture of an especially worn Bedale (don't let the inside lining fool you into thinking this is sage, the older Barbours were different):

 

 

If that's the sort of color you are looking for (albeit in better condition than this one) I would recommend checking ebay or etsy for a used or vintage Barbour. You'll save yourself money and get a jacket with more character than a brand new one.

Hmm, I don't know. My sage Beaufort looks more like the picture posted by yipjam than the one you posted.

Maybe I got the wrong tags with my jacket, but I thought it was not the Sykoil version.

Here's a real life pic of my Beaufort.

If your jacket was purchased new relatively recently, the easiest way to determine whether it is olive or sage is to look at the lining. Also worth noting is that the sage has a stiff, sleek, shiny look, whereas the olive fabric is less stiff, more textured, and has a matte finish.

 

This = Olive:

 

 

 

And this = Sage:

 

 

As I said in my last post in though, some of the older Barbour jackets do not adhere to this. As for currently produced Barbour jackets, I have tried on both the sage and the olive in person, and the olive is definitely lighter than the sage, and has more of the brown undertones yipjam is describing. The interesting thing though is visiting a Barbour warehouse that stocks a large variety of jackets of varying age. There will be nearly as many different shades of green as there are jackets! Age, wear, and the year they were produced all combine to give each one its unique characteristics.

 

Check this out. This is a post-2004 jacket in sage:

 

 

 

 

And this is a pre-2004 jacket in sage:

 

 

 

As you can see, this is a complicated issue!

Thanks for the pics. The lining is in line with my jacket. I'm just not seeing the bluish undertones that the pic in your previous post shows.

Curious the Blast Jacket doesn't have the To Ki To label inside.  I honestly wonder if it is a Tokihito design.

Did it?  I tried it on other 3rd party pieces but to no avail.  I already have the coat, but wanted another 3rd party piece.

 

Anyone, if they have your size left, I would just get it from End with a code.  Shipping is $12US for FedEx and customs aren't bad at all.  Problem is theyr'e selling fast.  I got a Large in the Bark about two weeks ago.  Not sure I want to keep it though.

Tokito isnt designing for them anymore so his name is removed from the current lines which he had nothing to do with. Its just the Beacon Heritage line now

Yeah, I'm aware of that.  Still that collection is being "marketed" as To Ki To by a lot of retailers and some of the coats, such as the Hunting Jacket (Spring version of the Military Jacket), do still have the To Ki To label on them.  So my assumption has been that they're only putting the label on the pieces from that collection that he designed.

 

Also, it's going to be Barbour "Department B" going forward.

Really depends on your wear, but I don't think I will need it for my Beaufort which I wore about 3 times a week in the fall/winter.

My Derwent (6 oz thornproof) is ready for a rewax after a year. For Seattle use, I think I'm going to make it an annual thing.

Yeah, I was able to use it last night. This was the "cardstyle" code. Seemed to work on Alden stuff I had in the cart too.
