Wheres everyone gettig they're Barbour online?

I think that Jack Sugden Barbour jacket is pretty waste.

They do some nice jackets, though. This place is quite cheap:

I wouldn't mind getting one or two, but I have no idea what size I'd be?!

Do any of the scrawny Fukers have one? I'm guessing a kids L???
there sizing is all over the place imo once tried on a small and it fitted and im normally a L/XL

^Not that i know of. But once saw one of the Klaxons wearing one , which is a good enough incentive for never owning a Barbour jacket.

So the material is "water-, chemical-, puncture-, tear- and abrasion-resistant" but "one should avoid water, and one needs to be very careful not to put too much stress on the seams". The only thing more stupid than this coat is the bloke trying to convince himself its any good. "While this jacket will protect you from wind and the cold you will have to protect this jacket, too, in a way." What a load of cobblers.

dont think id wear either now, i used to have jackets from both Oops they are well designed and use amazing fabrics, but come with far too much baggage, luckilly, they fetch good money on ebay, so cleared all 'pieces' (sic) out for a decent return

BANworthy I know, but I bought a long peacoat the other day.

I don't own one, seemed like I should do.

25th birthday of stone island this year (article in GQ) so they will no doubt do updates of certain key pieces.
I think its time to start wearing them again after a few years in the wilderness
