Topic: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

We have big problems in France these days and I found a picture of a french guy during a protest. Look at what he's wearing.

I'd enlarge that picture if I were you or prepare for Higgins wrath.

Just have a look at any of posts by a user named Higgins over the past week. He wants people to post full-size photos here so he doesn't have to click on them to enlarge. I prefer linked thumbnails posted because it helps the page load faster.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

I've seen the jacket twice in real life on two different people in my town, although I wonder if either of them bought it because it was featured in Skyfall.

I think he's also wearing the Dents gloves.

Also appears to be worn by the chap in an up coming romcom series on Channel 4 http://snappa.static.pressassociation.io/assets/2015/01/14155539/1421250936-8cede2b7c4a3ff493b85a09f53f83dfe-600x403.jpg

For as popular and great this jacket looks its the one I can never pull the trigger on because I can just never see myself wearing it.

Spotted on the Homeland cast photo, not sure if it was in the show because I have not seen the latest season:

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

The Skyfall Barbour jacket is by a very long way the most ubiquitous film jacket I've seen in real life. I've spotted guys wearing it many times over. Euston underpass, Canary wharf to name 2 places I've seen it more than once.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

I bought mine yesterday from Tessuti in Liverpool. Now I'm constantly wondering who else was in my boat and is saying to themselves "bah, I want that Bond jacket".

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

I could never find the right weather to wear it. I end up either sweating in the back or chillly in the front. Among all the skyfall jackets this is the one I least wear. Instead I'm wearing the classic babour bedale for a skyfall look.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

The sweating is very annoying , I don't know if it's the lining or outer that causes it. And it is far far worse on the Comnander than the Tokito. Supposed to be all cotton but I've got my doubts about that lining!

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

There is a non-breathable inter-lining under the checked lining on the Commander - supposed to help with waterproofness, but it's this that causes the condensation issues.

A number of wearers have either removed this themselves or had it removed by a tailor and it does supposedly transform the jacket.

If it becomes an issue for me, I'll be having a word with Barbour with a view to having it taken out.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

Here's a link to just one of the Commander wearers who've had their lining removed:

Wonder why Barbour decided that their wax cotton jacket suddenly needed help in being waterproof, when they've all been just fine for all these years?

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

I have the same issue. Thought it was me. I wonder how easy it is to remove it yourself.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

Got mine with me today - looking at it, you'd have to unpick the hem along the bottom to release the tartan lining.  it should be then simple to cut away the inter-lining (which you can actually feel - just grab a handful of lining including the outer wax cotton, then swirl it between finger and thumb. Release the wax cotton layer and feel the difference - you can actually hear the plastic lining!!).

Then, you just need to re-sew the hem, using the appropriate cotton.  Would I do it myself?  Not on a £400 jacket!!

May be tempted to try..but will contact Barbour to get a cost.

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

I thought it was just me... this is good news.  I love the jacket, but despise the sweating.

I may have to take this to a regular tailor....  not a lot of Barbour tailors in the US

Re: BARBOUR SKYFALL Jacket in real life

Is the microfilm just in the Commander it in the Tokito as well ?
