    Random question for you guys (especially EFV) about Barbour. I was recently looking at a Barbour jacket, that's basically a shell. Waxed cotton with an inner lining of cotton material but no insulation, so as far as I can tell it's just that green waxed cotton layer with an inside decorative cotton layer... and that's it... and retail is $800... what am I missing? I mean it fit like a glove, and totally fits with my style, and I love it, but it seems completely useless in terms of functionality. I guess it's a bit wind resistant, and I know it'll be 'durable' and all that but I can't imagine that it's warm, so do people just buy this for the look? Am I underestimating this magical fabric? Even layering up and down underneath, it's hardly more than a fall jacket, and if I have to create my own insulation, then... what's really the point of the jacket?

    It's a Cassells jacket BTW

    "Dept. B is Barbour's latest launch, just in time for FW '13. It has an emphasis on select archived Barbour pieces including military inspired and the Commander jacket that was ever popularly featured in James Bond's Skyfall. Dept (B) takes its name from the department in their South Shields factory that has dealt with bespoke customisation for decades. A waterproof, windproof, multi pocket jacket, the Cassells is both functional and classically cool enough for the modern day man."

    Stick with the traditional Barbour line. Go down 2 sizes. Sylkoil (olive) will drape better than the wax cottons. You can get zip-in liners for the traditional line coats, but they work very well with sweaters.

    Yes, very expensive. But the heart wants what it wants.

    So this is a bit of a variation from my last, and also a bit of a risk. My original intent was to wear a black Barbour Liddlesdale with this, but I went with an Olive Beaufort instead.

    This is a great look (although I agree with CD about walking in the mudd with those nice C&J's) What model is the Barbour coat? It is a great length, and the four pockets give it a pseudo military look.
    This is really great. Curious, who makes the pants, and what type of fabric/weight are they? They look lightweight in the pics, but you're wearing a sweater, so my eyes could be deceiving me.

    Very nice, I'm looking at something similar from Gustin, this fit might convince me to take the plunge.
