Sounds like a project for your next day off. Two jackets though... you'll need some serious arm stamina.

Any opinion on this International Saddler leather jacket?  It's made in Pakistan.  Is it worth ~$500?  Thanks.

Lots of Barbour at End Clothing. Contemplating the hooded Bedale or maybe the Tailored Sapper, but I already have something similar from Filson.

Any feedback from owners of either?

Glad I found a Barbour forum. Barbour employee here! I'll try to help if I can.

Churchill, tailored Sapper is great. I own one. However it's very tailored and I would recommend sizing up if you plan to layer. But I ended up sticking with my usual size (S) and I can only wear a thin sweater underneath it and it still pulls somewhat.

Thanks, I've actually tried that one on, and you are right, I needed to size up from my regular size to fit into it.

Break it in by wearing it when it rains.

Yes, that's what I've been doing. It's coming on well. Been raining a lot in England lately.

Is it possible to have a quilted jacket altered? I have a quilted Commander/Sporting jacket that is XL (needed for the length), but that need to be taken in 1.5-2" on each side. Any guidance would be appreciated.

I had a Liddesdale taken in at the sides. Nothing in principle to prevent a quilted jacket from being altered. Whether it is possible for the Commander would depend on the construction of the jacket. 1.5-2" on each side sounds like a lot though.

You could ask them to install side snaps like the ones on the Lowerdale.  I can't think of anything else since quilted jackets are something that usually shouldn't be taken in since it may affect the fit.

Hands down, the 2 Pakistani barbers on Dundas and Jarvis. Sketchy area, but they do a great job and only $10 per cut. The other great thing is that they work AMAZING hours and are open late. Im talking till 12.

I just checked out my Lowerdale, that's a good idea I'm going to look into it.
