Thanks for the heads up. Appreciate it. Sadly, I called, and they told me they're all sold out now. Summer sale, most of their barbours are on sale. Only ship within Canada though, for interested American parties.

The Norton & Sons Collection is superb, particularly the Barra and St Kilda jackets

I have it.  I have the AW12 To Ki To Military Jacket, which the Shoredace is a copy of, and I prefer that.  However those are olive and black respectively.  The Shoredace offered the jacket in navy.  Really big difference is that the Shoredace uses beeswax.  Anyway, I like them all.  Dept B thus far lags well behind To Ki To and that doesn't look like changing anytime soon, so I would recommend the Shoredace.

I would say those only work as winter jackets if you're going to add a heavy knit underneath, and that still depends on your climate.  Living in WI I'd say they're more Autumn and Spring options.  Great jackets though.

Yes. If you check the Barbour site, zipper replacement is something that they offer.

If you're willing to drop an extra $100 on the warm pile liner, the Bedale or Beaufort can do double duty as a winter coat.

All these people saying you need a liner, you don't really. I never used one even when I walked 40 mins in sub zero temps last winter. Just wear a heavy sweater and you are all set.

A nice heavy wool sweater worked for me the odd times I used it during colder temps. I tried fleece once and that didn't work in my favour at all. I've heard mixed things about the liners, I'd be interested in trying one out, but not sure it would be that much more effective at keeping me warm than layering.

Thank you. I'm looking to replace just the "Pull" (the golden, circular thing that says BARBOUR on it. Would this be the "hanger loop"?
post #2427 of 2665
You're looking for a new zipper pull.
The hanger loop is used to hang your jacket when you don't have a hanger.

I'm not trying to come off as one. I just don't think they are necessary...and yes given the nature of my former job I had to be in the office when the city of Boston was shut down...there were no buses there was no t. I walked the few miles in snow and negative 20 wind chill with a hat gloves heavy sweater Wool scarf and my bedale and was actually sweating.

That is the most severe weather from a cold standpoint anyone in hear will see. (With the exception of maybe Minnesota) If I didn't need if for that I can't imagine why anyone would need it warmer temps.

If you were so inclined to get a liner I would defer to some other cold weather company ie north face. They make plenty of shells that are lighter and warmer than the shell barbour offers. They won't zip in the jacket I assume but they will keep you warmer if that is your ultimate concern.
