This is 60-70 years old, and was loved by its previous owner, you will not see another like one like this. Very rare, and very wearable now, needs no work, is perfectly waxed, and all zips and press studs work, linings are fine, just put it on and off you go. This is because it has been back to Barbour for refurbishment, a complete overhaul of everything that was needed was done, with no expense spared. So, on the jacket, the sleeve cuffs have been strengthened, and the same all along the hem of the jacket.
One small patch was needed on the front, together with the inside of the right sleeve, both redone in the correct grade of black waxed cotton. The jacket was always worn without the belt, which alas is not here, and in my opinion looks better. The original 1950s Lightning zips throughout the suit are all in perfect working order.
The main zip, the hidden breast pocket zip, and the two zips on either side of the trousers are all the original Lightning ones. The jacket lining along the hem has been repaired with the same lining material, new from Barbour. All the press studs on the jacket have been redone with Barbour brass. Even the lining studs down either side are new, which means that any new liner from Barbour will press in now.The only stud which wasnt done on the jacket, and is therefore still a Newey stud, is the one on the neck for a liner, directly above the green label. The trouser studs, original oversized Newey studs, are all perfect, working and kept original.
The elastic is good at the waist, the only repair on these trousers being two new patches on the inside of each leg, where presumably the most wear might have occurred. It too has its original Barbour green label intact. 19.75 shoulder to shoulder.
