C1974 Vintage Waxed Cotton Barbour Suit - Police Issue - with Epaulettes. Generally VERY GOOD condition - but see item specifics below.

Size: Not labelled, but fitted me when I had a 34" waist and 42" chest. Still fits comfortably to my 45 chest. Waxed Cotton fabric in very good condition generally. Has wear /tear at lower edge stitching of internal checked lining both sides - minor and easily repairable - see pics.

Main Zip works perfectly and fluidly but missing pull-tag; still easily operable nonetheless. 4 External pockets and one internal lining pocket; RH Breast pocket has zip and flap. Epaulettes to shoulders - for fixing Police Badge Numbers. EUMCC and Norton cloth badges lightly stitched on - easily removable without any damage. Jacket inner has pop-studs for fixing included detachable wool winter lining.

Sleeves have usual cuff button/straps with added Belfast branded hi-vis stripes. These hi-vis additions appear to have originally been glued on, and are now becoming detached. I've picked away at some of the remaining glue on the fabric and it comes away leaving clean waxed cotton underneath. However, I CAN NOT guarantee that it will all come away cleanly, so better solutions may be to re-glue or stitch the hi-vis stripes back on.

Armpit to armpit laid flat =22" (so c44" chest). Bottom of collar to lower back = 33. Shoulder join to cuff = 25. Waxed Cotton fabric in excellent condition ; worn much less often, if at all.

Twin straps with pop studs to calf and upper ankle, each leg. Buckle strap to lower ankle, each leg. Reinforcement to knees and inner calves. 8 side zip for ingress / egress. Waist - flat, unstretched = 16" (=c32" waist); stretched =20" (=c40" waist).

Inside leg = 31; (shorter than dress trousers as meets boots). Waist to ankle = 46. Inner detachable woollen lining - original - for winter - attaches by pop studs. Condition is fair; stitched repair at shoulder; Just been dry-cleaned - looks good. Considering all of the above, I would say overall very good condition for the main suit. As ever with old "stickies" the jacket would maybe benefit from a professional clean and rewax. Lovely piece of vintage special bike gear - mine for 45 years. Bonus : spark plug and spare chain link in pocket!
