They definitely feel short to me but I have gotten round to doing anything about them yet. I've heard that Barbour can extend them for a fee.

I had mine extended. See lousy pics below. Next time you send it in to be re-waxed you can ask for the extension.

Re-waxing your own Barbour, is one of the only true pleasures in life for a man. Easy too. Give it a try, and you will only need, to send in the jacket for more serious mending.

Cross posted in the main thread!  

 

I decided to test my tailor.  I've always wanted high rise, pleated trousers, so I asked my tailor to slim down and taper some baggy 1980's pants.  

 

The journey didn't seem like it would work, but the end product turned out great! Not quite Ambrosi, but close enough ;) 

 

You can see the journey of the different alterations and fittings here.  The before and after is truly remarkable.

 

 

 

Even my jacket has pleats!

Looking good, @SprezzaTrash. With the jacket, that kit is definitely classic casual. If there's enough fabric in the pants, a good tailor can change those reverse pleats to forward pleats; I've had it done once with fair success. Forward pleats will throw the excess fabric toward the inside seams and crotch, and make the hips and sides of the pants look trimmer. Reverse throws the ease outwards toward the hips. A good discussion of the differences between forward and reverse pleats here.

Jacket looks like a lot of fun.

@Testudo_Aubreii Thank you!  A definite inspiration for my style is the Laurence Fellows 1930s illustrations.

 

I might have my tailor change them!

Great fit. I could look at that jacket all day. Trousers are an admirable experiment as well!

For your sake I hope you are joking and / or exaggerating for effect. If not may I suggest that you get out more?

Is there a reason to be so snarky? I actually quite like to re wax my barbours as well. Maybe chime in when folks are discussing Fred Perry cycling shirts or whatever other terrible neon plastic Mod gear you collect.

Some people on these threads get a dopamine release by tearing down other people. I would chalk it up to a personality disorder, not necessarily the fault of the original poster.

lol what? it's clearly a joke. do you really think the guy's suggesting that applying wax on an old jacket is one of the only things a guy can possibly enjoy?

 

???

 

i'm genuinely puzzled

post #21719 of 22480
I also wax my Barbour myself. I enjoy it. Other people might not. Nuff said.
