Great Jacket, but..... -
This is a great jacket. I wear one very much like it, but not the "distressed' version. To begin with, anything Steve McQueen used or did was cool. I even have a pair of vintage Persol glasses like he wore. These things do not and never will make me or anyone else as cool as he was, but it feels good having them anyway. The thing that bothers me fundamentally about this item is the whole pre distressed thing. Without meaning to, when I see someone wearing this, I judge them as someone fake. If you can afford this jacket, you can afford to buy an undistressed version, then go out and have actual adventures. If you are buying from Orvis, that is what you secretly want to do anyhow. Then when your jacket is beat up looking but still a great jacket, every time you see it , it will remind you of all the cool things you have done, and the great memories of the close calls and new friends you made along the way. By all means, buy a Barbour jacket. It will last you a lifetime. Never wash it, just brush it off to preserve the waterproof coating. Then ,after you get the jacket, go outside and do something interesting and perhaps a little scary.

The Barbour Penton ISDT Exactly like the jacket I wore in the early 70's when desert racing. Lost it about '74 and here it is. Wish the waste was a little more tailored. The fit is certainly exact for length, sleeves. I do think a little high priced but if you really want a true riders jacket! This is it! Not as stated in fit it's Classic fit"
