    The Solway Zipper was one of the classic Barbours until it was discontinued, and so this is a rare opportunity to grab one at a very good price indeed!

    This is a vintage Solway, with all of the old-school Barbour features you'd expect. It carries a vintage single-crest label, is cut from the waxed cotton that Barbour is known for (no Sylkoil here!), and has that utterly rugged and masculine appeal that is now lacking from the current Barbour range.

    The Solway has the classic Barbour tartan lining, underarm grommets for ventilation, three patch pockets on the front, the lower two of which feature stom flaps, like the old-school International, to ensure that whatever is inside them is kept dry. It also has adjustable elasticated interior storm cuffs, a small cotton loop by the top chest pocket (to hold gear), and a deep interior pocket with a cotton latch to seal it. It closes with both Barbour studs (all intact) and a heavy-duty zipper (which works perfectly fluidly).

    The Solway was a belted model (like the Beacon and International), and so this has belt loops on the side seams, but no belt. This is an older model, and so it could use a re-wax--although it still carries with it that great Barbour wax cotton smell! It has also been patched by Barbour on the back, as shown. There are some very minor nicks throughout, and some minor fraying to the corduroy collar. This is NOT a pristine Barbour, but a wonderful, rugged, usable vintage piece that is in Good, usable condition. As such, I'm asking

    just $55, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS. This is easily the best value Barbour around today, so grab it if it's your size!

    No size tag, but measures to c.44, 46:

    Chest: 24 1/2
    Sleeve: 32 3/4 (measured like a shirt)
    Length: 34 1/2
