    Fellas, I don't know if any of you are in the market for a Barbour or not but Nordstrom is running a great sale. Bedales are $253 and Beauforts are $267. They are 33% off. I just bought one. Put This On just posted about it. I have wanted a Barbour for years now and I decided to take the plunge at what I think is a really good price for an item that rarely goes on sale. I have been trying to thrift one for years but no luck..

    Here is the link: http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/mens-barbour?origin=leftnav

    Serious question... What's the deal with their stuff? Is it pricey because it's that amazing all year round re: rain/wind/slush/etc protection?

    I just love their patterns most of the time and I find tons in good shape. My mother worked for them doing textiles and dresses, so I have a bit of obsession with the company and its history anyways.

    I'd definitely love anything super old or tasteful wool challis, shetlands, etc in good condition... I have tons at this point because I find them so often, but If anyone finds anything cool, I'd love to proxy/tip for them.

    Bro, your avatar is freaking me out, man!!! Nah, I doubt it's anyone from here cuz they didn't fully utilize all the characters in the title. Thrift thread members are more thrifty than that!

    I think he was asking if someone from here sold that.

    I think most would have split up the lot instead of putting it all together.

    Have this Pendleton tartan sweater with futbal buttons with Navy blue banding. Wondering if anyone can help affix and age based on the label.

    The 2nd photo has the standard blue Pendleton label with the other visible one being the Made in USA flag tag. I'm guessing this is a late 70s, early 80s.

    suggestions on the age?

    My Beaufort is my favorite jacket in the stable. Love the versatility. Worth every penny
