Even though we don’t make it to the movies nearly as much as we used to, we’d still consider ourselves pretty big movie buffs here at Bowties & Boatshoes.  One film we made sure to catch in the theater was the latest addition to the Bond franchise, Skyfall.  With Skyfall releasing on DVD earlier this week, we were reminded just how great some of the clothing in the movie is.  One of our favorite pieces is the Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket by Barbour.

Part of Barbour’s Beacon Heritage line, this “Sports Jacket” has the look of a classic Barbour product, but a cut that is far more trim.  In fact, we’d recommend sizing up from your standard size to ensure a proper fit.  Made from 6oz sylkoil waxed cotton, and featuring the traditional Barbour tartan lining, the Sports Jacket has two bellow pockets similar to a classic Beadale or Beaufort, and a welted chest pocket for just a bit of extra storage.  With a leather lined collar and cuffs, the jacket also features a removable hood, and to tell the truth we think it looks best with the hood attached.  Available in extremely limited quantities, the Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket has already sold out once, but we understand that more are on the way.  In fact, we’ve seen a few pop up recently (looking at you M. Dumas and Sons), and some retailers are even taking pre-orders for a September delivery.  Since we don’t see a DB5 in our future anytime soon, it looks like the Beacon Heritage Sports Coat is as close to being Bond as we’re going to get for quite some time.
