Calling Millie1 re. Barbours- and anyone with a Boden Biker Jacket
I too have the previous seasons Biker jacket and agree this looks remarkably similar. I have it in both the Evergreen and the Tomato and love them both - although for some reason, despite the wet summer, I still haven't worn the Tomato yet. Note to self to rectify this!
I also have a Barbour, but can honestly say I reach for my Boden much more often as it fits me so much better. As with all wax jackets I do believe they improve with age - and I think nothing looks sadder than a pristine Barbour as imho they are meant to look 'lived in'.
I got the brown- bit boring maybe but it looks nice- it's a very dark brown.
I think they have upped the lining compared to the Biker jacket of last year which was realy thin- this does have a quilted lining- not as thick as a duvet jacket of course, but it does feel warm.
The sizing is also better- the Biker jacket was returned last year as the 8 was too small and i think the 10 would have been massive (I have tiny shoulders and short arms.) However, the 8 in this one is fine- not room for a really thick jumper but enough room for a T shirt and thin jumper.
