Archival Finder: Barbour Tweed Endurance Jacket

Recently, I've been receiving email requests from readers trying to track down clothing items from the recent past that they regret not buying. The most recent request came from Markley, a reader trying to track down the Barbour Endurance Tweed jacket he declined to purchase from the Upland Trading Company in 2003.

Markley likes the idea of the Endurance Tweed jacket design since it integrates hunting jacket features (technical tweed fabric, an internal zip-up waistcoat and game pocket) into a more traditional style dress jacket.

Markley would love to locate a new old stock version of the jacket or perhaps receive recommendations from other readers about genetic matches from other companies' product lines.

I might also start an archival petition to Barbour to bring back this jacket.

Markley is a size medium in case anyone has some dead stock lying around in their back bonus room.

From the Autumn/Winter 2003 Range directory (I prefer the moleskin version myself):

And a few additional waterproof breathable style Barbour coats from 2003 that might also be worth tracking down:

Big fan of Barbour - I have a quite a basic one (the Country Liddesdale) but it's hugely versatile and perfect for keeping the rain/wind off.

Count me in for the petition...I agree the moleskin jacket looks fantastic. I like traditional jackets with zip in contemporary liners.
