Yeah, the more you wear it, the less shiny it'll get. Just regular wear will help decrease the sheen on the wax. Wearing it in the rain will speed up the process (that's what it was designed to do, after all).

Admittedly none of my jackets have started out quite as shiny as yours I don't think (though perhaps the picture is deceiving), but I've never had any issues with the finish rubbing off on stuff that I've noticed. The patina will just develop over time.

The STP sale has been a real boon, particularly early on. I got 4 jackets, none of them really typically Barbour: all are navy and only one is waxed cotton. I bought a Shoredace, Markham, Aberfeldy and a wool Gamefair. 4 really nice Barbours for under $500 is not bad at all. I'll post pics if I get a chance.

Please do! I am a Barbour addict. I own 5 now and last week bought two more... I hope if there is not much delay on shipping that I can post a couple of pictures next week, or maybe the one after... I am eager to wear these new ones... now I am only missing a Duke jacet which is the one that started it all for me but unfortunately is gone in my size really quick every year...

STP has a lot of good stuff but it carries mostly in large only.  Bummer if you are a medium or prefer a slimmer fit. :(

post #3021 of 3399

Thanks for posting about the STP guys.  Some great stuff.  I just grabbed one of every piece of the Norton and Sons collaboration styles they had.  They were the final SS collection for the Barbour x Norton and Sons line and I passed on them back in the day.  The Barbour outlets had them this past Spring and Summer, probably cheaper as well, but there isn't an outlet near me and they won't ship.  Norton and Sons is a Saville Row tailor for those of you who don't know.  IMHO they're some of the best Barbour pieces of recent years after the Tokihito collections.

 

Anyway, I have a big collection of Babour jackets and while lately I think they've been doing some poor designs and some poor collaborations, STP has some good styles or just some styles from some of the better lines.  STP doesn't do a good job of letting you know what they're from though.  Thought this might help:

Barbour Pantone

Barbour Tokihito
 
 
 
 
 
Barbour Spey Fishing
 

 

 

Notes on fit based on what I know:

 

-Dept. B is fitted, so in some cases size up.  

-Norton and Sons is true to size, but I only own the previous AW line and from what I linked here I've only ever tried the Seaboard, but that was also true to size.

-Steve McQueen is true to size in my experience, though some might be a bit smaller.

-Pantone I haven't tried, but based on the research I did the jacket looks true to size.

-I own a ton of Tokihito outerwear.  Nearly the entire AW12 collection.  I sized up on all of it, though the Spey jacket in black (which isn't waxed but rather goretex) was more true to size if I recall correctly.  These styles are a good 2-3 years old minimum, but in general the Tokihito lines were the best Barbour has offered.

-Spey Fishing line jacket I linked, the Standen, was true to size but boxy when I tried it. 

 

Anyway, hope that helps and thanks again for mentioning it guys.  Oh, and if you're interested in saving a few bucks, eBates gives you a % back and after about 3 months they'll cut you a check.

That was awesome.

I have a few of those above jackets.
Norton and Son Stanhope fits a bit large.
Slicker fits like the Barra. Is hellishly hot and sweaty.
post #3024 of 3399

I wouldn't buy a Barbour jacket without trying it on first.  The cut could be all over the place.

Not bad at all!!

 

I didn't pick up anything from STP but have 4 waxed barbour jackets. Navy Bedale from Kittery outlet, olive Beaufort from Milford store, tan Barra from Barneys and a olive flyweight Sapper from the Orvis outlet next to Barbour Kittery. They all serve their purpose but admittedly it is a bit overkill. I couldn't pass up the deals. For instance, the discontinued Sapper was somewhere around $100 a few years ago.

 

Incidentally, I received an STP order today and it came with the following 25% code to share w/friends.

 

MEM1303E

 

I typically wait for the 35-40% discounts. This time I picked up a bunch of smartwool socks and merino long underwear for my constantly cold wife.

post #3027 of 3399
Check retailmenot.com or similar site. There's a 35% code that worked this morning.

Really hard to get a good pic due to the cloudiness this weekend and the darkness of the jackets. Will try again this weekend.

This looks like a nice piece:

 

http://www.sierratradingpost.com/barbour-herringbone-sl-bedale-coat-waxed-wool-for-men~p~8940p/?filterString=s~barbour%2Fclothing~d~5%2Fmens-clothing~d~15%2Fmens-jackets-and-coats~d~142%2F&colorFamily=01

 

I'm familiar with it as they did various wool blend SL Bedales.  What's nice about this is that it's a herringbone and not just a plain grey wool.

 

OK, just made another order.  Came across this one:

 

http://www.sierratradingpost.com/barbour-radar-dept-b-jacket-waxed-cotton-for-men~p~8950r/?filterString=s~barbour%2Fclothing~d~5%2Fmens-clothing~d~15%2Fmens-jackets-and-coats~d~142%2F&colorFamily=01

 

I know all about it as I've seen it at both End and Kafka online:

 

http://www.endclothing.com/us/barbour-dept-b-radar-military-jacket-mwx0695ny71.html

 
 
Kinda reminds me of the White Mountaineering pieces from that inaugural collection, but less loud and more tasteful.  Yes, I'm aware of the lighthouse.  I'm fine with that.  I like the pockets, the contrasting wax, the button on the bottom left pocket (if you're wearing it), the contrasting quilted lining, the side pocket, the zip on the left (if you're wearing it) chest pocket...  Reminds me somewhat of the Shoredace, which I have, though not as nice.  What I don't like is that seam material, but I can live with it.  It just bothers me at the back of the jacket.  We'll see when I get it in person.  Oh, and I don't like the material of the loops either, but again that's not so bad.  

 

Fall is taking it's time here in the Midwest.  Wouldn't mind a few degrees cooler.  Still, wore this gem today:

Cheers lads.  I probably missed a few as well.  Anyway, just quite surprised at the selection considering it's STP.  Another thing to note is that with a lot of what they have the weight and density of the fabrications can vary from piece to piece.  The Standen for example, which if it shows up in a medium please PM me, isn't as thick a waxed jacket as Barbour generally does.  In fact I would call it thin.  Also, some of the jackets have some nice or interesting details.  If you do an online search for some of them, like the Norton and Sons jackets for example, you'll get listings from other retailers like End where you can get better photos.  Note that End tends to post measurements that are slimmer than the actual garment.  As for the details, take that quilted Pantone jacket I linked.  The top button by the collar is a two-tone colored button.  The whole jist of the Pantone collection was color by the way.  Oh, and another thing guys.  That yellow Stanhope Too is very reminiscent of a vintage Yarmouth sailing jacket the first Vintage Showroom book which is close in color and also has a yellow cordoroy collar.

 

@zippyh I too have the Barra.  I grabbed it in both colors.  I'm assuming the Slicker Too won't by much worse in that regard, though I tend not to get too bothered by that.  What I like about the Slicker Too is that I have a tattersal shirt with the same colors that I think will look great in Spring with it.  We'll see what it looks like when I get it.  I'd imagine the Stanhope fits like the St Kilda.  That's fine by me.  It's a bit boxy, but not too bad and I can layer then.

Agreed on the cuts, though there are other sites with size charts out there.  I know a lot of the cuts myself and can generally tell from the size charts.  If you get to the point where you try enough of the styles on you can generally order comfortably without having to try things on.

All my Barbour jackets I have bought without trying them on. I don't count those that my parents bought me when I was a kid. 

Having said that, and now that you say you know generally a lot of the cuts... what would you say is the appropiate size for me in a  Lutz jacket if I have a Large size in the International Collection? A Medium size would be right? Generally the International line is slimmer than the rest, right? 

I am waiting for my new Lutz to arrive and I am having doubts with the size... seeing the size charts in some online stores, I would be a Medium... but I am unsure...
