TLDR: now poster has to find something else meaningless to cry about.Well I've finally recieved a reply from Barbour. Also the seller at Cox the Saddler store removed their Made in England advertising from their website.
Classics - back label lining - if the jacket reads ‘Simonside South Shields’ this confirms the jacket was indeed made in South Shields Factory.
Bedale - breast pocket, label on the inside - this is where you’ll often find made in England.
Beaufort - outside right hand side bellow pocket - this is where you’ll often find made in England.
As you can imagine our South Shields factory is limited to a certain number of jacket production quantities per week. Should the business require more jackets than our South Shields factory capacity, the jackets can sometimes be produced in factories outside of South Shields.
Typically this would remain within the UK as we use several factories in Wolverhampton as an example, however this cannot always be guaranteed.
I'm glad this Made in England meme is over. Be advised when you buy a jacket from now on. In my opinion, for their price (which is pretty expensive) is not worth the lottery, because they might send you a MIE one or a foreign one. My guess is that they will always sell a non MIE if they are cheap, like Cox the Saddler, Best in the country, etc. Now I know the huge difference in their prices and now I know why other stores sell it for +300.
I still wear and value the jacket, but it's such s scummy thing to do to advertise their classic line as MIE and sell that image everywhere and guess what, it's just an Ashby.
I feel you. I'm glad I'm not the only one who cares. Yeah its just some label. But isn't a national flag just some piece of cloth? I think it is the same concept; there is significant meaning behind that Made in England label that matters to a lot of people in the same way a flag or symbol would.Whatever you say, manchild. If I wanna complain about something wrong, damn right I will.
Well it arrived and as expected it's huge. It actually drowns me and I am pretty big. I'd say it was more like a XXL. The leather is really thin and flexible, its actually super nice. I think I'll look for a medium.Damn I think it will be huge , I am usually a L in most things but this is an XL . Have to see I guess, I’ll update the thread when it arrives. Can’t find any info online about the leather Beaufort?
