    Yes Fred Perry has it, on the first page of Ltd edition, but it doesnt say it's the waxed harrington but it is (I forget where I got this info from tho).....however it costs $350 + shipping so it aint cheap

    Ah, thanks, GS. I just couldn't find the shop option on there before. I think the black harrington is the same one I saw - although no mention of it being waxed and the sizing is SMLXL rather than chest size. Hmm. I wish that site had more info and photos.

    Hello Jason,

    I see my latest article has possibly influenced you to go all the way [​IMG]

    Enjoyed reading this discussion a lot too. The only thing I've got to add is that I also like this item :

    http://www.endclothing.co.uk/shop.ph...et/p_1442.html

    For those interested, I'm referring to this piece :

    Cheers,

    Alex


    Hey Alex! Good to see you drop in here again....yea your article came out at the same time these jackets came onto my radar so there was definitely a mindsynch going on

    Wha? Are you coming to europe? Where? When?? I keeel you if you don't drop by Brrrlin.[​IMG]

    BR...yea man we're in Rome, Paris, London for a whirlwind 2 week trip....no Berlin [​IMG] I know my fiancee (as well as me) would love to go to Germany since she was born there. I have friends in Sweden who i'd love to see as well but there's barely enough time for us to catch up with our friends in London & Rome [​IMG]

    Earlier, I carelessly posted about my Barbour Beaufort not being quite warm enough for the coldest weather, forgetting that there are different weights for the waxed cotton. The Beaufort is a medium-weight. A coat like the Northumbria uses heavy-weight; I handled a coworkers Northumbria and it had the heft of a sack of potatoes. It could handle Northeast Winters without problems.

    Is it literally waxed, and does the waxing melt off if put near heat?

    from what I've read the answer is probably yes, since it's advised not to wear in an upholstered vehicle since you could leave wax residue if the temps are too high

    Barbour has a FAQ that is informative

    Yes, it is literally waxed. They sell the wax so that you can reapply it yourself, if sending it back to Barbour for rewaxing is an issue.

    And I have read about using a hair dryer to make any stray marks on the wax finish disappear.

    Hey Jason

    Which site did you get the international from.

    BTW. I have 2 belstaff Trailmasters and they look better with wear.

    I wonder about the sizing on that page Get smart... is it US or EU? I know the Barbours Ive tried on where euro sized (i was a 52), but that would make 34 reallyreally small... On the other hand, if they are US sized, 52 would be like XXXXL..
