    Offhand no because i wasnt looking for any. All i know is they had a lot of Liddesdales, two different Tokito quilts and random other stuff. Barbour makes like 75 different quilted jackets so its tough to say what was what

    How do we go about pre-ordering the sports jacket from skyfall?

    A few days ago you could have pre-ordered it in any size from a dozen different websites, but over the weekend (since the movie was released) almost every website is now sold out or only has like size XL

    hey dave,

    don't know if there are any barbour x tokito jackets left? i'm looking for a bomber or something similar in style in small sizes (s, xs, or something that would be a slim fit in size 36).

    thanks in advance!

    Those of you who have a Beaufort. Do you find that with a linder that it is warm enough for winter weather? I live in WIsconsin, and it can get pretty damn cold.

    I think the quilted liners aren't very warm from a winter perspective - but the warm pile liners may be better.

    There were some waxed bombers left (dark brown color) but i think they were medium. They fit pretty small though

    Thanks for the reports from the sale, Dave.

    I am going to wait for a 30% off sale in Kittery (maybe next week for black Friday?) to snag a Beaufort rather than drive out to Milford to get one for $250 this weekend. Please correct me if I am wrong, but Beauforts are $350 every day in Kittery and at 30% off plus 5% ME tax they are $257. I just hope they have inventory when the holiday sales start up.

    To me, this is an ideal fit on what i believe to be a olive beaufort.

    Sleeves aren't too short in your opinion?

    You are right. I didn't really even think about the sleeves. I did think the body fit really well though. Good observation.

    I think the sleeves are really short on all of the jackets - maybe to free the hands for shooting?

    Yeah, I think Barbours generally do have a shorter sleeve.
    I was told that the Beaufort has the velcro wrist closure so that when you're hunting and pull your arms/gun up to shoot that it breaks away to give the shooter some freedom of movement.

    Hunting in the Beaufort, yes, it doesn't feel as restrictive as the Bedale cuffs might. My velcro tabs are not fastened and haven't been ever, so they are wonky but worn in like that, I never notice them, mounting a gun or otherwise.

    I think personally that the pile is marginally warmer than the quilted vest. People say get the vest because you can wear it by itself but I've never seen anyone actually do it. The pile is quasi-Patagonia fleece. They used to do snaps before they were replaced with zippers.

    Kittery has been 30% off for the past week. Beauforts are $300 though and dont go on sale. The warehouse has them at $250 with no tax in NH
