hey, yeah i was discussing the extensive cost of shipping this to you (needs something just a tad larger than the USPS Large Priority box but i can squeeze it into one)
the jacket photographs better than it looks in person, in the pictures it looks like a smooth workable well flowing lightly waxed cotton fabric with some luster to it.
yea thats just the flash.
its thick and it feels like a cheap raincoat, as for the cordouroy fabric at the neckline, its itchy and it drastically needs to be cleaned, the whole coat needs to be rewaxed as the "wrinkles" in the jacket are not actually wrinkles but parts where the wax is thinking and cracking
while i'd love to have a barbour bedale jacket (plenty of high end clientele wear them today) this jacket is not even in the same league,
just a a rick owens stooges leather( as opposed to a vintage perfecto )features drastically higher armholes, fashion forward post-hedi slimane fits and cuts. this barbour is the same way.
it is a 3/4 length jacket that has seen use and abuse and is given new life hauling brass to and from BLM land keeping public shooting ranges open and the second amendment alive. Edited by 951socal - 5/30/12 at 1:12am
