Looks good!
Any chance of posting some measurements for the 44?

I had hopes of doing this trip (we do it every year) in the cold with my B-3, but the persistent warm temperatures and rain we’ve been saddled with, seemingly for months, put the mockers on that idea. Too wet even for leather, the Barbour was the only one for the job! Still a pleasant evening.

Back before I started working for myself, Land Rover dealership was one of my accounts. They sold a pretty extensive line of Barbour gear there in their accessories shop.

Here is one of the buckles & liner. Buckles have a neat little pattern, kind of a “western” look. Liner is a cotton twill. I noticed the same thing on the cuffs yesterday & how they are top stitched vs rolled under & seam being on sleeve.

The liner makes me lean towards early 30s, I'd have bet on a thicker wool liner had it been 1920s. The cuffs are very odd, that method makes for a very lumpy join, I've always found the cuff/sleeve join (with the normal method of folding) is usually the last place on one of our jackets to break properly, this method must have lead to a fairly uncomfortable cuff for long after the rest of the jacket had broken in.
