    Was able to find this green Sporting Quilt last night. Man, like finding a needle in a haystack.

    On a somewhat related note, Tokihito apparently designed that other blazer/jacket to go with the Mountain parka:




    Nope. I was going to preorder a Large as well, but waited too long. I have a contact at a shop that had a preorder at a good price so I'll see what he says. I'm just thinking the Large will be too small pit-to-pit.

    I'll see if I can some pictures up of the jacket. So far I've only been wearing it in weather where I've been needing gloves so I haven't used the pockets much, but I think they will be far enough down to accomodate.

    I have a lead for the Greenham and I think it would be great as a spring piece. Like a minimalist International if you will :)

    Hi

    New on here, I have a Barbour Cowan Commando, Had it for about 5 years.

    But this is the coolest Barbour I have ever seen, a real piece of military kit.

    It is a Durham, that was customised and saw action in the Falklands campaign. A lot cooler then the faux designer stuff. I have purchased a Durham off ebay for £40, I've rewaxed it and will send back to the factory to have the arms lengthened. Best thing about barbours, the more worn the cooler they get.

    Are you sure the Greenham isn't an old jacket? I can't find much info about it and no one seems to stock it. There is a store here that had it in 2011...

    It might be, but I talked to my supplier and she said she gets it in on a regular basis. Also thinking about the Marlow for spring. We'll see :)

    Strange that it isn't even listed on either the Barbour US or UK website. I would be interested if your supplier can indeed get it as I kind of fancy it for myself too :)

    The Beacon and Steve McQueen collection seem to change a lot from year to year. Let me know what size you are and I can PM you if one becomes available.

    I assume that jacket inspired the TOKITO Military Jacket ...looks VERY similar

    Exactly what I was thinking. Very similar look down to the colors even. Love the military and that original pictured is great. Love the history there.

    Nice coat. I think I'll go for a belted version at some point. Maybe an International, but I don't love the label on that one. Pegasus looks nice.

    Well the problem is there just aren't pockets you can easiy slide your hands into. Have to say I went to the tailor today, who will be shortening the sleeve 1/4 an inch soon, and tried it on again. I was worried about it being too boxy, but I didn't think it was after trying it on. Glad as I'll be keeping it now.

    Yeah, I like that Greenham.

    BTW, does anyone have the Sporting Jacket/Bond Coat? If so, how does it fit from the pit down?

    I have it in XL. Normally wear L. It fits nicely - I don't notice any "boxiness" at all.

    I was just in the Georgetown Barbour store and tried on a Beaufort in "rustic." What do you guys think of rustic vs. the classic olive?
