Well if it is the former then I would be up there for the latter, though this being SF I'm not so sure. Either way, I the Commanders went back. I don't dislike it, but I'm not as chuffed as most. On top of that it's a tough fit unless you're slender or tall or both. At least that's my take. On top of that the whole Barbour "blazer" look just seems off to me. I'll stick with the Cabourn Mallory for that. Too bad though because I wanted it to work.

Cool. Are you grabbing these Barbours off of eBay or just finding them in second hand shops? How much are they running? How much is reproofing? Anyway, per your blog, no, it doesn't sound like you own a bunch of cats. Of course with all my Barbours you might want to consider the source.
