Good to hear. Six weeks doesn't seem like much wait time, mailing to England and coming back. I'd only ever heard of the Alden factory, for instance, resoling and sending back a pair in something like 6-9 months. (or waiting for pre-orders to be released, etc). 6 weeks is nothing.
I'm not sure if there is a legitimate tailor outside of perhaps New York, LA, or Chicago that I would trust with my Barbour - being stuck out here in SLC.... hmmmm...
