Very nice jacket. It fits a bit big compared to other Barbour jackets and sweaters I have owned. This is good because I keep getting bigger. In a bad way. Great service by phone. They shipped over night to the hotel I was in.
Quality light jacket -

I'm thoroughly pleased with this coat for spring in NYC. Light enough to not get overheated walking and a good windbreaker for those gusts down the avenues and cross streets.
I like it... -
By: Laico from Laredo, TX
I ordered the blue jacket. Loved the color because it looks elegant enough for a nice dinner and looks great with jeans. I am 5"10" 185 lbs. (42 reg) I ordered the large and fit me great. It is a light jacket (like a liner) excellent for south Texas weather. God Bless
Perfect for Our Climate -
By: Ravenscroft from Vancouver, B.C.
I've worn my Liddesdale almost every day since I bought it in November. Light, water repellent and flattering, it's ideal for our climate. While it won't replace my Gortex outerwear for sailing and mountain biking, this well made and comfortable jacket is smart enough for around town and walking the dog. I'm 6'3" and 245 and the XXL is long enough to wear over a blazer.And in navy (a perfect shade) it's smart enough for the office. Great value for money.
Barbour Liddesdale -

This is a gift to replace a Barbour jacket my son lost. The quality is good but the sizing is off. The jacket looks much larger than the medium I ordered. When I next visit him and he tries it on I have the feeling it will be too large and have to be returned.
Great coat for cool weather -
As a gift for my husband. Very well made, classically styled cost for cool temps and layering when colder. Navy color is perfectly navy, not too blue or dark with corduroy collar. Fit is updated but still classic, not too lean so fits "not too big or small grown man" - runs true to size based on size guide. Lightweight yet warm with ample pockets. Length hits 5'10" long'ish waisted husband just at fingertips (covers most of the backside), but not too long.
Great purchase -

Looked for this jacket in several places and finally found the exact color and size here. Ordered it only a few days before Christmas and it shipped immediately. My husband loves this gift! Great looking jacket.
Great multipurpose/utilitarian jacket -
This jacket in navy blue is beautiful, blending nicely with casual wardrobe. Not being made of natural fibers (excluding the collar), makes it more resilient against inclement weather; the collar is also great for added warmth. Large outer pockets, and convenient small, inside pocket for a wallet, cellphone, or loose change. It's not intended to be a jacket for deep cold, but most likely for intermediate temperatures. As such, it fits the bill. It is a good alternative to other Barbour items.
Go-to jacket -

Love, love, love this jacket! Perfect weight for most of fall into winter, and roomy enough for layering underneath! Great for guys or gals...around town or in the stable!
Since 1894, England's J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to life in the country. Their quality, durable clothing is cut for an active lifestyle and the fit varies according to each garment's design and purpose.
The sizing of Barbour’s clothing is divided into three segments:
In the case of Barbour outerwear, sizing takes into account the appropriate layers beneath. That means you do not need to order a size up for a comfortable fit.
Chest Sizes - Jackets
Chest Sizes - Knitwear
Men's Glove Sizes
The beginning of Barbour jackets
In 1894 John Barbour established himself in the burgeoning port of South Shields, supplying oilskins and other garments to protect the growing community of sailors, fishermen, rivermen and dockers from the worst of the North Sea weather.
Within a few years the firm became the leading supplier of oilskins on the north east coast, not only to seafarers but to others in the surrounding country - farmers, labourers, carters, shepherds - who earned their living outdoors in all weathers. By the beginning of the next century Barbour’s durable Beacon oilskins were well known throughout Britain and beyond.
The legendary durability of Barbour jackets
If there’s one feature that distinguishes Barbour jackets more than any other, it is their legendary durability. But, given the quality of materials used—genuine long-staple Egyptian cotton, solid brass studs, substantial metal zips, plus painstaking quality of construction with an average of 15,000 stitches and up to two hundred components—perhaps it’s hardly surprising.
The seams in a Barbour oiled cotton jacket are double rolled, each stitched through two thicknesses of fabric. It is an intricate part of the manufacture and it ensures that the seams are completely waterproof. Even the thread is treated with the same secret watertight proofing formula as the fabric itself.
How long a Barbour jacket will last very much depends on its use (or rather abuse in many cases). Undoubtedly, owners expect much more of a Barbour than any other garment because Barbour enables them to do more. They will subject themselves and their jackets to the severest conditions of weather, mud, animal contact and abrasion than they could ever contemplate if wearing anything less robust.
For more than a quarter century, Orvis has teamed up with Barbour of England. Since 1894, J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to enjoyment of life beyond the city. It is this commitment to quality and durability that has seen the name Barbour become synonymous with the best of country living.
