Looks like a Patagoniaany opinions on the Barbour Penton Jacket? Quality? Where is it manufactured?
I'm looking for a light casual jacket and this could be a good option, although I think it's missing a hood
One thing I hate about the wax jackets are the sleeves. I’m 5 10, and wear a 40 and the sleeves are always short. Why haven’t barbour sorted this?I bought a Beaufort from Orvis that arrived the other day. Unfortunately the sleeves were comically short (I'm 6'4", purchased a 42). The jacket was lovely and fit quite well everywhere else, but clearly won't work for me. Are all Barbour jackets like this, or are there models with longer sleeves?
I read somewhere that they're meant to be hunting/shooting jackets so the shorter sleeves keep your hands/wrists free to blah blah blah whatever.One thing I hate about the wax jackets are the sleeves. I’m 5 10, and wear a 40 and the sleeves are always short. Why haven’t barbour sorted this?
It’s a load of old bollocks. Every other hunting jacket on the market has longer sleeves.I read somewhere that they're meant to be hunting/shooting jackets so the shorter sleeves keep your hands/wrists free to blah blah blah whatever.
Also apparently you can send the jacket to Barbour and they'll put new longer ones on for a fee but that seems like a whole thing.
Good to hear, I also like my Ashby.I have to be sincere
I bought a Ashby jacket for 1 month, and I'm very pleased with that, at first I was apprehensive that it was not made in england, but with daily use it disappeared from my head, it's a sturdy, high quality coat.
Yesterday I could compare with a Bedale, and I saw no differences, only a few simple details like a collar a little thicker, otherwise everything the same.
I would definitely recommend the Ashby.
Yesterday I also had opportunity to handle and try other barbour pieces and especially liked the shirts, beautiful shirts, excellent fabric, well made. I also liked all kinds of accessories.
I was a fan of the brand and I'm going to start following them with more attention.

I have found Barbour knitwear to be good.
I will have to have a look at their shirts.
I would imagine the knits vary a bit depending on wool used. My lambswool one is very smooth and soft, my Donegal Merino one a bit rougher but it is a chunkier knit.I saw few knits, but it does not impress me by the touch, a bit rough ..
Also I did not like the down light jackets, badly made, nor looked like a barbour product, disappointed.
Otherwise all products had a lot of quality.
