    That looks like a Barbour Hurst jacket.

    I have the Barbour Skipsea jacket in Navy as my winter coat (love it). What would you guys recommend for a spring jacket? Will mainly be worn with denim and a button down. Thanks!

    Thanks for this post and the review. I too need to have my jacket taken in. I opted for the large because the medium wouldnt fit on the shoulders, but now it drapes like a "tent". I have the beacon heritage tokito ('skyfall') jacket and was hesitant on sending it to them from Canada. But i dont have any other choice. I have to take in the chest and waist ("lower hem") but also the entire sleeve width (the bicep area to the wrist). Do you know where i measure the width from on the jacket? Thanks.

    I won this Barbour model on Ebay for 70 bucks. The tag inside says it's a Reefer Liddesdale. I don't think I've ever seen another Barbour model like it.

    I finally made it down to Georgetown Barbour store this past weekend. Got to try on some jackets. I haven't heard it mentioned much but the sales person said if I was looking for a trimmer fit of the Bedale to go with the Ashby.

    I should have asked but are there other jackets that are a bit slimmer fitting than the Bedale? And also jackets that have a standing collar instead of the corduroy fold down?

    Looks like we have one final (?!) Bond Sporting Jacket in a size LARGE available for anyone who missed out.

    we've also got a good chunk of summer in, including the final Beacon Heritage collection and new steve mcqueen. I'll try to get some of this on a person for you guys

    also dont fret about the Dept. B gear, it builds off of what To Ki To did for the company!

    Best,

    D.O.

    EDIT: A Customer of ours is looking to sell their brand new XL which was a hair too snug for him. PM me or email rori if you're interested. both of these will be at full retail rather than the inflated ebay prices that are floating around now.

    Going through my email, I'm not seeing a reply to the email I sent Barbour weeks ago. This seems odd...

    Anyway, if anyone held off on the Sport's jacket, there are two things you should know, and both are detailed in this thread):
    http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/38733/skyfall-lodge-jacket/page/1

    1. There was an issue with the button stance on some (including mine) being even, which isn't how the original line went out: the distance between the bottom button and waist button should be less than the spacing between the other buttons. The incorrect (equal) spacing sort of ruins the sports jacket look.
    (starts around here in the thread:
    http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/38733/skyfall-lodge-jacket/page/34/)

    2. Barbour is introducing the Dept. B line (as was noted earlier) under the Beacon Heritage banner, and one of the first jackets is something of a reproduction of the To Ki To sports jacket, without the hood or windflap. I'm not sure if the button stance has been corrected or if it's the equal spacing. I've also read the fit is different, but I didn't get into details with my reading on that.

    I recall there was a sale a few months ago and it was around 30% off. Discount does not apply to any of the classic collection though.

    Looks like a bit more than "building" - more an absolute cashing in.... The new Barbour Dept B Commander Jacket, due out late 2013.

    Orvis boston still has a decent stock of sage Bedales, everything else is pretty spotty. (-30%).

    Oddly enough, this photo has the buttons non-screen accurate, as they are calling it, while some others have it SA. It's very strange. What's funny is that even though Bond doesn't use the storm flap, you can still see it tucked in in one of the shots, so in their zeal to make a Bond jacket ("Commander Bond") they eliminated something that's still on his coat. I will admit though that it is kind of an annoyance--I hardly use it, and I'm not sure I'd miss mine were it gone.

    pt2, i find the stormflap very functional, otherwise the coat, would b quiet drafty.

    Going to London in about a month, is there any better store to visit than the one at Covent Garden?

    Thanks!
    How are the prices if you were to compare the Barbour Store and The Highland Store, seems to be more or less the same online but is there any difference in store?
