Wow, seller didn't quite know what he had. Well done!
I feel bad. I really do, but my gain and my size as well. I'm going to be parting with a bunch of my other jackets though to make room. One in, one out deal from now on.

Well, no doubt the most sought after Barbour of all time is here. Some issues that the seller didn’t show on the listing, but no big deal. I’ll rewax it at some point this week and write a blog post over the weekend.

A little repair work and relaxing should put it right. Great find!

The Tokito looks great on you @Purplelabel
I've seen the auction as well but not my size. Amazing deal, even with the work to be done. Looks to have a nice patina as well.

I think the auction was up for less than an hour. I threw my best offer and she lapped it up! Thankfully she did.

I’ve spent two hours and whole tin of wax on it this evening! Hoping the results are great in the morning, Sylkoil is shit to rewax.
I’m now hungry !

Looks fairly unstructured. Does it feel more like a windbreaker?
It feels more like a suede sport coat in a way. High armholes and built up chest.
I’m in love with it.

I bought Billy Reid's Bond Pea Coat because Daniel Craig wore it and I wear the heck out out of it. Have tried to find the Barbour from Skyfall but so has everyone else. Jacket looks great!

I’m on the hunt for one of those! They’re great! Keep looking, I spent 3 years wasting time on eBay to find this.

30% off right now. Price hasn't changed since I bought it when it came out. Fits close so I sized up.
