Found a deadstock NOS Bill Blass s/s BD in an ivory colour in the US.
Assembled in Jamaica from USA components (?!)

£36/$45 all-in including postage and taxes, which isn't bad for a new-but-vintage Oxford BD

Is there anything like the bedford cord Levis 519 that can still be purchased? I have been scouring for my size on ebay for quite some time to no avail.

Does anyone wear a harrington from a surplus store ?
I bought a Harrington from Ben Nevis in Camden and its got quite a combaty and puffy look compared to a fashion brand like Baracuta which is quite fitted.

The knitted elastic band a bottom is quite tight which gives it a bomber jacket like feel. Would be nice if i can somehow alter it so its abit more loose.

Funny, you just described all the things I hate about the new Baracutas! Skinny arms, loose cuffs, too slim.

Have you tried Ben Sherman or Fred Perry harringtons? They might be a bit more fitted than the more traditional Combat/Ben Nevis/Jump the Gun/pre-Lavori Baracutas.

I have a Fred Perry MIE Harrington and it's quite tight on the waist and the cuffs, but I can't compare with traditionnal models. It's not loose that's for sure
