***That really cracked me up for some reason...
I definitely follow you on the Barbours/waxed jacket stigma. Pretty much what I presumed.
The jacket Steve McQueen wore was called the Barbour International. Very nice jacket which comes in a few variations, including the Steve McQueen model, though the original is best(pictured left, though the "75th anniversary" patch below the "Barbour International" patch is not standard. As patriotic as I am, I don't think I could see myself in the one on the right, a reproduction of the one worn by McQueen. Last time I wore an American flag patch it was on my bomber in the early '90s.
Yeah, I really like the Brooks Bros raincoat, it fits a treat and looks smart. The guys pants/trousers could be taken up 3/4" in that photo but, that's just me being a d*ckhead.
I read an odd story somewhere years ago about why one chest pocket is set at an angle...something like a Royal Navy submarine officer in WW2 had previously been a motorcyclist and had a Barbour international,he started wearing it while he was on watch keeping because it was waterproof and had the pocket put on at that angle so he could keep his pistol in the pocket and get to it easily....sounds like a bull sh1t story to me but sometimes its the strange ones that are true.
