Barbour Graham Jacket-Will they reissue?

Hi everyone

New to posting so I hope this in the right place.

Anybody know if Barbour will reissue the Graham. Really surprised it’s so hard to find. There must be some money to made surely? The Commander jacket is still going strong after all.

Anybody got any inside knowledge?

    I spoke to a Lady at Barbour customer services about 3 weeks ago (who was extremely pleasant) reference the Barbour Graham Jacket re-runs. She laughed and said she "Couldn't answer that due to legal reasons". My take is that this is probably quite positive, no surprises that they are no doubt working on the re-release but I am guessing closer to the films release as they have missed the Autumn Winter window.

    Hi there ! That is great news (although there is no confirmation) it’s really hard to imagine they would want to turn down all that cash! Hopefully it will be more screen accurate.

    Thank you so much.

    Great news. Can I ask you if you have a direct contact to the costumer service? I ask because I've tried to reach them but received no answer yet. But, scrolling through the forum, I think is a general problem...

    I believe it will come but at present with Covid they are struggling to keep up with the standard ranges but it will come.
    I have a contact at Barbour since skyfall who is very helpful.
    Please have faith

    I hope if they do have a reissue they make the sizing a little more like the screen worn jacket rather than the previously released jacket. Don’t really want the added hassle of having to tailor it.
  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent
    Hopefully they will address the sizing!

    Please let us know if you hear any more!

    Anybody any ideas?

    It’ll be part of the Autumn/Winter collection from September.

    Hi there...


    prediction or inside knowledge? 😂😉🤪

    The original was a collaboration. barbour x engineered garments. That's why they can't answer "due to legal reasons". Much like the Skyfall jacket which was also a collaboration, expect a reissue like the "dept. b" or "commander" jacket, where barbour basically copies the design but calls it something else, won't be 100% like the original.

    As far as sizing goes, I noticed that Craig's tailors left the width of the waist on items like the tommy bahama, rogue territory, and barbour graham as is, but the TB was shortened, the barbour and RT were taken in at the chest, and the barbour's arms were slimmed down quite a bit. Moral of the story: Craig's screen worn gear is always heavily tailored. I wouldn't expect sizing to change much on the Graham.

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    Thanks for all that. The design is used a lot in there jackets anyway isn’t it in one way or another .

    it’s really hard to see why it isn’t out now given the way the RT must be selling.


    They know their jobs I guess !

    I would love get one eventually. Who wants to get the ball rolling on a reissue? I think its been well established that a company will listen if enough of us speak up.

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    Great idea! What do we do?

    Hi I’d love to get one. Just hoping that Barbour issue it around time of the release of the film

    Anyone got an insight into below jacket?

    Seems not to be the 'Washed' version but missing the screen accurate button on collar and the back pocket.

    Wow ! That looks from the pictures very very close!

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    Oh man my finger is hovering over the buy button!

  • ichaiceichaice LondonPosts: 398MI6 Agent

    I had the washed Graham in navy and blue and sent them both back. That Covert version looks very nice. Can’t find any more info on it though apart from that one site.

    Yes. Considerably!

    It would be great to see it on but can’t find any joy there. Does anybody know how Barbour works? Do they produce items for sale outside of their own website? They don’t seem to have sold this themselves .


    could this be the nearest we will get to the graham coming back?

  • JDJD Posts: 6MI6 Agent

    I'm close to biting the bullet and ordering but as you say, can't seem to find this on any other site.


    15% is tempting too!

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    It’s killing me I haven’t pulled the trigger yet!

  • canoe2canoe2 Posts: 1,662MI6 Agent

    Looks like the jacket has been removed from their site now.

  • 006006 Posts: 221MI6 Agent

    Ok, I pulled the trigger, and the jacket has just been delivered

    First impressions it looks slightly slimmer than the Graham when comparing to pictures. It does not have the washed look, and the fabric looks pretty spot on.

    I ordered a small (36" chest), and it is not a bad fit, but I do need to get the shoulders taken up about 1.5 - 2", and see if they can bring in the jacket by a similar amount - nothing too major, but enough to make it a better fit.

    The hood - so the jacket does have buttons for a detachable hood, the hood studs are under the collar and are like the Barbour Beaufort. On the Graham, they had two stud ends featured on the collar. Now on the covert jacket, you can feel where those studs are under the collar fabric, and they are in the right place, it is a matter of asking whether these studs ends can be exposed on the collar to make it look screen accurate.

    I will need to take this to Barbour, probably on the weekend, as I want them to tailor it, and will ask if these adjustments ca be made.

    On review, this is as close to a good alternative, and once all the alterations have been made it should be a close fit. I guess with the Graham there are some design details that they need to change as it was a limited edition.

    Will try and take some pics once I have a window free (probably later this evening).

    Hey,

    Just an update, managed to take these photos whilst on my lunch break, I have tried to take as many to show some of the details, hope this helps:



    I also tried to pair it with a black shirt, unfortunately my black shirt is slightly fading, but I hope it gives an idea of what it would look like with the Tommy Bahama black shirt

    I’m a 38 chest. Do you think I should get a small or medium ? Apart from the poacher pocket it looks a great match!

  • 006006 Posts: 221MI6 Agent

    I would say a Small will fit well - I tried it on again and I could definitely take at least 3 inches from the sides to make it fit well. Happy to provide a pit to pit measurement if that helps.

    I think it is a close match as well, the colour looks near spot on. I am hoping to get to a Barbour store in London to see about tailoring it down and the collar hood stubs, don't know about the last one, but they have done tailoring down for me for my other jackets. Will keep you posted!

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    Please do! Glad someone’s bought one. I would have bought a medium without this update.

  • 006006 Posts: 221MI6 Agent

    Hey

    So the dimensions for the small are as follows:

    Pit to Pit - 21"

    body length - 27"

    The fit is boxy, not slim, I am a 36" chest, and I can easily take it in by at least 2", and the sleeves are long so I am looking to take that up by 2-3".

    Hope this helps :)

  • GaryorangeGaryorange Posts: 105MI6 Agent

    Yep! Very much. It’s very very similar to the Graham! I would definitely buy a small now based on this. Thank you


    woodhouse have taken it down for some reason though 😂

    I need the discounts to justify getting it!

  • MrEMrE Can't be too careful Posts: 511MI6 Agent

    That might be the reissue, perhaps woodhouse put it up for sale before they were supposed to and had to pull it.

    And it wouldn't surprise me if they screwed up the metal snap on the collar detail; whenever there's a reissue or recreation, it seems they always miss some small detail, at least enough to keep the die-hard fans from getting a proper night's rest knowing their item is not 100% screen accurate.
