We have heard from our good friends at Aphrodite that they have just taken in more stock of the much hyped Barbour Commander jacket. If you haven’t heard of it already, the Commander jacket is a waxed jacket from the newly created Barbur Department B collection which takes over from the Barbour x Tokito collection. More notably, the jacket is the same as the one Daniel Craig wore in Skyfall. The piece is a full wax sylkoil jacket with leather accents and Barbour Dept B embroidered branding on the pocket.
Pre orders have been flying out across UK menswear independent retailers but Aphrodite took their first batch in a couple of weeks ago which sold out within a few days.
Eager fans of the brand have been snapping these up whilst those who are in the market to make a quick few quid have bought them and put them straight onto places like Ebay and Gumtree, commanding figures up to £1,000.

Ewen McGregor and Charlie Boorman are both pictured wearing Belstaff jackets in this photo. The pair teamed up for the hit tv series Long Way Down and Long Way Round. Wearing Belstaff jackets, the pair ventured off on their motorcycles in exhausting conditions to produce a quality tv programme which is now available to download from online stockists.
The individual jackets are actually a new style of jacket commissioned by Belstaff for the programme. Cordura 1500 was the chosen shell to protect the pair in the event of falling from their bikes and is perfect for the variations in temperatures that the pair faced. The jacket is now commonly known by Belstaff as the ‘Long Way Down jacket‘

In The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt is seen wearing a Belstaff Panther Jacket. Retailing in the UK around the £980, the stunning vintage looking leather jacket is a small price to pay to be able to pull a woman of Angelina’s calibre!

The Stone Island Mussola Prismatica Field Jacket certainly has that wow factor that fans of the brand are attracted to. Affectionately known as the ‘toffee wrapper’ jacket because of it’s glossy appearance, this eyecatching jacket is made from a unique fabric to Stone Island. Mussola Prismatica is created by joining a lightweight cotton muslin material to glossy transparent polyurethane film. Double dye formulas are used in the base of the material to capture the colour which results in the deep and striking tones that you see in this fabric.
The material is wind and water resistant but also refracts light which enhances the strength of the colour in the garment as well as helping the surface material to appear to have a 3D effect. The chest area has two horizontal zip pockets and two lower velcro fastening pockets for storage. The adjustable cuffs are also fastened with Velco along with the wind flap which conceals the full zip up fastening.
This stunning jacket is available in limited numbers. It is available to buy from Aphrodite Clothing in Sunderland, UK – a Stone Island Official Stockist
