    ... so for those with the international original, how warm is it??? is it recommended to buy one of those quilted inner liner layer jackets?


    I wear the original International without a lining as I think it should fit slim which also means that I don't wear it much in very cold weather. I have a Beaufort with the teddy bear lining (as MoK very descriptively calls it) for very cold winter days.

    My International is arriving today. I bought it from: http://www.scotia.uk.com/ It's a neat shop in London I visited when I was there a few years ago. With the exchange rate as it is now, it's about $100 under Orvis. Shipping isn't awful, either. International purchases like this qualify for no-VAT, but you may have to email the owner.

    A few years ago I picked up a Duralinen International when they came out with those. It's definitely lighter weight than the normal one but it's a really cool piece I think. It's like yellow linen but coated with black PU (it's a black jacket above all else) but over time the PU kind of fades and cracks in high-wear areas. Think "sick fadez" or whatever but for your jacket. It definitely has a cool look to it though that is very different than the normal waxed or non-waxed cotton. Here is the only picture I have of it, but it's from a few years ago so there is no sort of wear on it at this point. I'll try to get a better one soon. [​IMG]

    Hello all, this is my first post in the style forum. Got my 75th anniversary Barbour International from fedex on Thursday. I was able to find it online in the UK for much less than jcrew's price point. Although that's not to say it wasn't without it's hassles. Since I had never tried on an International I had no idea what type of sizing to expect. After researching different forums I decided to size up because I thought maybe they would run small.

    Usually I wear between a 40R and 42R depending on the style of jacket. I decided to roll the dice and take a chance on a size 44. Yeah...it was quite large. Luckily the people at the store I ordered it from were very helpful. Word to the wise, these jackets run large. I wanted a more form fitting fit so I actually went with 38. It fits well, a little tight in the arm pits, but I attribute that more to fact that I'm hard to fit(40R-42R with a 33-34 waist). Overall I like it a lot.

    Anyone else get one of these 75th anniversary jackets?

    ^JCrew doesn't sell the international.

    Edit: my bad y'all. (hand raised, head down).

    Yes they do. They sell special edition International jackets. And Yes it runs very very big; I think the 36 had a chest measurement of 45-46 inches.

    Not all the Internationals run large - the standard A7 is fairly generous, but some versions are much slimmer - it pays to check the actual measurements if you're not sure.

    I like the Barbour more, the price is also better than belstaff, but the loud logo on chest pocket is totally ugly. Dunno. ;(

    Can you post the actual chest/shoulder/sleeve/length measurements?

    I'm probably dropping it off at my tailor's today and I don't have a measuring tape so I likely won't have a chance to measure before it gets 'slimmed'. Although I won't be touching the chest, or length of anything, I may get the waist suppressed a little bit and the sleeves (towards the bicep/arm hole) will definitely be taken in quite a bit.

    I though the same until I tired on a belstaff roadmaster. The fitting is far better and the quality HAS not gone down for belstaff. This issue has been touched upon on other forums such as filmjackets--
