    anyone own one? Seems like a great option for a kind of all purpose waterproof jacket. I've got a dept. store nearby that carries them, and plan on checking them out soon. Opinions of them? Online prices have them all about $350... better deals to be had?

    Great coats/jackets, they last (seemingly) forever...love mine but, make sure you have had the opportunity to see/handle a "waxed" cotton garment before buying one unseen. While I don't mind the "nose" of the coat, the wife can't stand it. So, my coat hangs, relegated to a utility room closet and gets worn, only when I'm out on my own! [​IMG]

    Barneys stocks them (or at least had them last year).

    Hopefully the OP found what he was looking for. I just imagine him being cold for the last 6 years, not being able to find the right jacket.

    Everyone from Barneys to J.Press stocks them now.

    I think they're marginally cheaper if purchased online from a UK retail outfit (try www.bestinthecountry.co.uk).

    The "nose" of the coat goes away if it's worn everyday for a few months. Then store it for the warm season and the smell has come back a bit. Don't worry -- it is a glorious smell.

    And a glorious garment.

    Always that danger. For some reason the system puked this as a recent post this morning.

    There is a Barbour boutique, managed by Peter Elliot, on Madison at 80th Street. They have a pretty good selection of their various coat offerings. They also have some pretty decent tweed jackets.
