Broark, this is the closest I could find to the Colimbo…

@Duke Mantee you’re not wrong, but it doesn’t have the Barbour name associated with it so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ And it has a few other small details.

^ It is nice, but on the whole I prefer the storm cuffs, lining and velveteen hand-warmer pockets on my old thrifted Bedale...

:biggrin:
 

I’m not a big fan of Barbour - they’re a bit underwhelming re cut/pattern and not always that well made, although they’re made for a specific purpose and they’ll cope with that far better than this replica. Colimbo make some lovely stuff - I’ve owned enough of it - but unfortunately this isn’t one of them IMO

The Colimbo does have the advantage of hand warmer pockets...

Manifattura Ceccarelli also makes nice waxed cotton coats.

Fair enough, I worked in a shop that stocked Barbour and I was always underwhelmed at the quality and fit as well.
Lord knows I really don't need any more outwear as it is. :D

This Colimbo jacket is fabulous, especially in blackwatch: https://masuya1997.com/pickup/colimbo-croaker-field-coat-2

But too rich for my blood. IIRC it was about 500 euros plus proxy etc...

Masuya has a great selection of brands. I check it for inspiration now and again. 

 

Edit: not as expensive as I thought: Around 39000 yen plus shipping/proxy. So maybe a total of 450 euros...

You don’t pay consumption tax so the coat is ¥36,000 - that’s about €280 I think. Also I’d estimate shipping to be around €35 using EMS.

Hiroyoshi is (was) very flexible too, so I never had any customs ‘issues’

Anybody here into a brand called Phigvel?  Just bought a pair of pants from them recently.  They have some interesting denim offerings.

PHIGVEL chino pants

I messed up and bought two pairs to compare.  The 34 fits better as shown in a recent fit picture.

Selling the size 36 chino pants for a steal.

But it doesn’t insulate your money in the winter?
