I'm in the market for a new midweight jacket.
Having a long-time distain for quilted jackets (probably because of my distain for all things Columbia (sorry, Columbia lovers), I was surprised to find myself really falling in love with some of items in Barbour's collection. I then found myself torn between the Musto Kingston and the Barbour Ariel.
I was about to pull the trigger on the Ariel as I'll be able to try it on locally, versus special-ordering an item from the UK that may or may not fit well. However, before I do, I've suddenly become aware of Vedoneire.
Vedoneire claims to have been around since 1942, and is apparently a long-lived heritage brand. However, I can find very little information about them. Online shops from the UK seem to indicate they've only carried the brand a couple years. They're selling on Amazon and eBay... but I see very little written about them and no reviews.
Anyone try these jackets? Comments on quality, etc?
