    I'd go w/ olive. Navy would be a bit more difficult to pair back against denim, no?

    +1 on olive. I got a J. Crew catalog last week and saw a nice olive Barbour jacket on there. I swung by a local branch to order from the red phone and a small is all gone. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

    ok sounds like olive/sage it is then. i think olive/sage goes better with gray/black/blue suits and khakis/jeans than navy.

    thanks y'all

    now, let's hope i can find some good deal this Fri. :slayer:

    I have a like-new Barbour Beaufort in Sage (size 34/small) that I'm willing to let go for $225 if anyone's interested.

    The correct answer was one of each ;) but if it's versatility the olive has the edge. If you're wanting to wear it over sportscoats for work you might want to look at the Beaufort - it's just that bit longer.

    damn. I hope I can still find my sizes when I go NH on Fri. Kittery still wont discount on the waxed jackets?

    I think I'll try to call the Factory again tmrw and ask them about tokitos.

    The Factory only has 3 Tokito trenches and a quilted Tokito. I think maybe one other Tokito but it just said sample so i dont know what style it was.

    Kittery will have waxed stuff on sale just not the 3 racks of Bedales and Beauforts. They arent allowed to discount them from the $350. But the Factory has all the same jackets for $175 right now. Id recommend going to the Factory store tomorrow.

    i can't go till Friday, but if I go I'll check it out for you. if they have it I can probably grab it for you as long as you are 100% sure you want it.

    I'm not an avid eBay buyer, I've always taken the high road and gone with a retailer. Is there a reason why the factory is so much cheaper? Are they defective in anyway? If not, I'm definitely sure I want it at that price point.

    Dave_SFU has been there himself, so perhaps he can give you the best answer. But from what I heard there are defective ones but that's only part of it. Part of it are just brand new and I have no clue why they are at those prices.

    but if you go on to http://www.barbourmall.com

    you can find that a lot of their prices are low compare to the retail. So I guess it really isn't that expensive to begin with?
