    Can anyone confirm whether http://www.contentstorelondon.com/ are an authorized Barbour re-seller? They don't come up on Barbour's counterfeit page however they appear to be a legitimate business.

    If it is not specifically stated as an authorised retailer, then it is not.

    Also a UK company would generally have .co.uk as the address, not .com.

    EDIT: The person above can vouch for them, so I guess it is safe.

    Might not be a Barbour authorised seller, but they're a legitimate business and they do use the .com extension (as do a lot of UK businesses). I wouldn't worry about buying from them.

    Contact details are a good way of spotting the dodgy sites - if they don't provide a legitimate bricks and mortar address, a phone number with the right dialling code and a proper email address, then avoid like the plague!

    Thanks for the reassurance. I have something on the way from them and only stopped to think about the legitimacy after I purchased.

    Does anyone have an old navy beaufort hood, or an old olive hood that would fit a gamefair? (I think a beaufort one would be fine). Not sure I want to pay $60 for a new one, if I can get a used one. My coats are faded, and I know most people don't use their hoods anyway.

    I have hoods for my sage beaufort and navy bedale. I hate the snaps and have been considering having a tailor add buttons to the underside of the collar and button holes to the hoods. I think it would work much better.

    I've got two Ashbys I've purchased within the past 6 months.
    One from a retailer in the USA. It has a Made in Tunisia tag fairly prominent on the back of the collar.
    The other was from a UK retailer. There's no country of manufacture tag that I could find.

    That is brilliant! Can even pick out my jacket.

    Just to follow up on my post, Barbour themselves just responded to my inquiry confirming that Content Store is an authorized retailer and their counterfeit page has yet to be updated.

    Only with a jacket attached... I don't think they're sold separately, but you might have luck on ebay.

    Does anyone here have a Barbour commander, in size L, that they would be willing to part with? I am looking for one, and I thought I would check here first. I am hoping to unload my barbour Standen in the same size, and then change to a Commander.

    I own a Barbour Bedale SL Pinstripe size 38. I cannot find any information regarding this so i was wondering if anyone knows if there was a hood released for this particular model anywhere worldwide, as i suppose this will not fit standard hoods being as the jackets are made on different blocks the sizing would be out. Matching is always preferred anyway.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    I bought a hood (the kind with the tartan lining) for my Ashby jacket, and I am having problems attaching it to my jacket for the first time.

    If you are looking at the outside of the hood, the 1st and 3rd snaps/studs attach securely to my jacket without any difficulty. However, I cannot get the 2nd and 4th to securely snap into place. I can get the male end to go in partially, but the ends pop apart if you move the hood at all.

    Is my hood defective or is there some trick to attaching the other two snaps which I am missing?

    my storm hood goes on my ashby without a problem. you should probably exchange or get another one to try it out.

    Does anyone own the quilted sander yet? I found it on orvis and am enamored with it. But I also don't own a Barbour jacket yet, although I'm obviously familiar with the reputation and quality of the brand. I really really want a quilted jacket, and I've been casually looking around for one for a while, and I think this one fits the bill almost perfectly.

    Also, what exactly is this polyamide material that they're using? Also, if anyone has a good recommendation or a good sale for a similar quilted jacket, it would be much appreciated. I'm looking for a mid/light weight quilted jacket for cool spring nights.
