With all the talk about reproofing that Beaufort, if any of you needs something reproofed you should try:  http://www.greenmountainreproofing.com/

 

$33 for most jackets and I've used them before.  I was very pleased because they also do edit: no longer do repairs (they call with a quote and ask if you want them done).  Good luck!

Z Zegna stuff is typically not made in Italy... that being said, I would buy it from you if it were in my size...

it'll be $48 to re-proof the jacket + $10 shipping
this is a border jacket, its cheaper than the beaufort

I've actually bought a jar of the reproofing wax and was wanting to give it a try. So part of my interest in 951's jacket was to try it before I try it on mine.

Actually the Border is about $40 more than the Beaufort. It's essentially the same jacket, but 5" longer.

This whole Barbour incident reminds of Top Gear's feud with the Morris Marina Owners Club

Makes me glad I grabbed that pair of NWOT Simon Millers for $8 a month or so back. Never heard the name, just went off intuition.

951Socal has been a part of two of the most mind-boggling SF situations in recent memory.

First, trying to sell a Charvet shirt without providing any information on its size. Now, this. Not criticizing. More power to you, good sir. It's tough a world, buying and selling second hand clothes while in the balmy embrace of a bath salt addiction.

after reading through this thread I decided to check out a few thrift stores.

 - found a pair of Burgundy Park Aves 11E.  when I got home I polished them up and they look pretty good now :)

 - if anyone is interested let me know

first, 951socal is a good dude, and i mean that 100%, no sarcasm. nod[1].gif

second, don't forget the awesomeness that was the zegna gun-cleaning cloths.

Since we're on the subject of Beauforts, does anyone have a preference of Belstaff vs. Barbour? I have a Bedale (thanks Ocooney) that I love but I've got a chance to buy a NWT Roadmaster for a really good price. I was thinking of getting the Belstaff and either selling the Barbour or giving it to my girlfriend, but money is pretty tight and I couldn't wear it for another four months. Thoughts?

What's all this about a Charvet incident, now?
