Rated 3 out of 5 by Olivine76 Odd Ball Fit
If you buy this you are most likely getting it because of 007, quality is great but the fit is just terrible. The shoulders are way too tight and the waist is way loose. If you are short the jacket will be a bit long and the sleeves will be way too long.
I am a small normally, I got the medium. If you are shorter than 5'8" this may be too short.
The jacket is thin and can not really be worn as a two button sport coat, it looks funny. Collar up and button up three looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Row4Gold Barbour - classic, 007 is just a bonus
I had been searching for a Barbour jacket for some time, an investment piece that I would have for decades to come, it was just a bonus that 007 wore the original ToKIto Beacon jacket in "Skyfall" the inspiration for this Barbour Dept. B jacket. Dept. B is Barbour's fitted/slim line, so yes, fit is trim, especially in the shoulders. I'm a 38R, purchased a Medium, have little room for error, but fit is snug and perfect. You should be of trim build when thinking about this particular jacket.

runs a little small, but fashionably comfy & warm,
if you're in NYC you can just head over to the Barbour store and get it tailored by their guys in the actual factory in NH. The price is reasonable considering what you paid for the jacket anyway.
I wore this coat during the harsh winter with a light sweater on and it still kept me warm. The extra pockets everywhere are just a plus. If you didn't watch skyfall and fell in love with this coat anyway you got the same fashion sense as James Bond! Heck if it's in 007's closet then you know you're doing something right.
Is it worth $800? that's for you to decide, unless you can find a way to get a discount.
