Nailing down the screen accurate Skyfall Barbour jacket size.
Hope everyone has been keeping well amidst the current difficulty out there, I am sure we a closer to normality than we were this time last year.
I was wondering if anyone on AJB has confirmed knowledge on what size Barbour jacket DC wore in Skyfall?
I am beyond certain multiple sizes were picked up from Barbour for different scenes i.e. stunt scenes requiring extra padding or wet suits to be worn underneath clothing. However, does anyone know what size was worn generally in the close up shots? Outside the obvious visual alternations to the original I don't doubt the original
was also tailored in the body for a better fit.
I purchased a Beacon jacket back in 2013 directly from a Barbour store near my old workplace. I felt it was fate as they only had one left (it was in a large). I just over 6ft 2'' and had a 36'' chest at the time. It was huge on me and I ultimately sold it. Hitting the gym (coupled with the inevitability of getting older) I bulked up and am now a 40'' chest picked up a medium in 2018. Visually it looked fine but feels like I am wearing barbed wire under my arm pits, also I fail the typical cross your arms over jacket comfort test. I have now gone full circle and re-ordered a large, which I am waiting to arrive.
I have reached out to Jany Temime today and am hoping she may respond but it's a long shot and it is project she worked on almost a decade ago (time flies). If she responds I will be sure to share her knowledge on the post. However, perhaps someone on AJB owns a screen used jacket or someone has rare pictures of a screen used jacket sold off at auction? It would be great to nail down a definitive answer.
I have included a headless picture me in my medium, without and without my hands in my pockets so you can get a better idea of the true fit on me. Believe me when I say the armpits are digging up high into me.
Many thanks in advance to all those who acknowledge and respond to my post.
