the cloth feels different. at first I thought it was just because my current A7 has been beaten to hell and is pretty soft, but the cotton on the new one feels thinner, not as substantial.
I wouldn't say it feels cheap, but it just feels "different".
I'll probably keep it since it was such a good price, but It's a sad day if in fact all of their production is now done outside the UK.

Or an A7 Brass - http://www.barbourbymail.co.uk/Mens-Barbour-A7-Brass-Bright-Colours-Waxed-Jacket.html
Because the original is still made in the UK and still feels/looks the same as ever. The A7 Brass isnt made in the UK and is thinner
