Skyfall Barbour X To Ki To

Updated on October 25th, 2019 – Bond’s extremely popular jacket from the Scotland scenes in Skyfall is the Barbour X To Ki To. Given the jacket’s distinctive styling, it’s obviously a hard one to find an affordable match for. You can learn more about the X To Ki To (and some Barbour alternatives) at James Bond Lifestyle. And you can read this excellent review by James Brosnan for more information about the Barbour Dept. (B) Commander version of the jacket.

Finding the combination of simpler blazer design in waxed cotton in the right color and fitted style really is next to impossible. I most often found more traditional “Barbour” style barn coats with corduroy collars, basic travel blazers, or waxed cotton field jackets with busier military details. If you still have your heart set on picking up a Barbour that’s as close to To Ki To as possible, then the Barbour Beacon Sport Jacket is what you want. It retails for £399.00/$483.99 at Aphrodite and the design is directly based on Bond’s To Ki To.

Best Option for the Barbour X To Ki To: 
Barbour Lutz in Olive: $311.44/£199.00

The Lutz does have the more traditional Barbour corduroy collar. But you can still wear it like a blazer with the collar popped (as Bond did in the film). Alright, it’s not the cheapest option. However, it is a genuine Barbour in a close color and style for almost two hundred bucks less than the current iteration of Beacon Sports Jacket. If you’re in the U.S., the best price I could find was at The Hut. For those of you in the UK, Allweather has it on sale for £199.00.

Banana Republic Slim Utility Blazer in Deep Olive Green: on sale for $78.99

We already mentioned this alternative in our 7 Essential James Bond Jackets for Fall post. But for those of us on a budget it deserves a second look. Made from a 96% cotton/4% spandex blend, this is obviously a more casual, less technical piece. But that can have its advantages. For one thing, it will make the jacket more versatile so you can use it in a wider variety of casual outfits. Banana Republic has sizes 38 to 44 in stock. The sale price is part of their current Family event, so don’t expect it to last long. But lately it seems like they’re always running some kind of sale.

Vedoneire Vintage Wax Blazer in Brown: £130.00 (approximately $160.00)

I’m still loving this alternative from Irish company Vedoneire. It’s more of a blazer style than the screen used Barbour. But the pockets certainly come close.  And “popping” the collar is going to help even more. Fabric is 50% cotton/50% polyester. I have another jacket from these guys, and I’ve been very happy with the quality for the price. And if you’re in the U.S., ordering directly from the company is no problem. That’s what I did, and I received my jacket in about 5 days with no extra duties or taxes. The only bad news? They only have size medium left in stock.

All Saints Camdale Blazer in Dark Khaki: $305.00/£198.00

An all new alternative for this season from one of Daniel Craig’s favorite brands. The combination of a 100% waxed cotton outer shell and integrated tweed inner liner (non-removable as far as I can tell) gives the jacket a fun “street meets heritage country” vibe. Some of you may like the funkier interpretation. And I have no doubt some of you will think it’s annoying as all get out. All Saints has sizes small to XXL in stock.

I almost never link to a vendor that requires you to create an account before you can see its products. But I’m making an exception in the case of López Aragón. I’ve bought from them before, so I know their legit. And they make really nice jackets! Is their Mastang an exact replica of the Barbour To Ki To? No. It’s very much its own thing. The details, from the side waist adjusters to the cuff and skirt tabs to the well thought out pocket construction, give it a unique but still heritage vibe. It won’t be a jacket for everyone. But if it does capture your attention I recommend contacting López Aragón for more info.

 

Charles Tyrwhitt Green Twill Sport Coat: £199.95/$399.00

And last but not least, an alternative we recently shared in our Best Budget Style Finds for October. Let’s first cover how it deviates from the original. The 60% cotton/40% polyester is not waxed. And obviously the “fatigue green” color is lighter than what we saw onscreen. The jacket is also lightly insulated for cooler temps. Having said all that, those bellow hip pockets and the country blazer styling really help give it the right look. Sizes small to XL are available on their website.

 

I’ll keep adding more options as they show up. In the meantime, if you have any great finds you’d like to share, the comments are below!

    Just wanted to say something about the practicality of the Barbour Beacon sports. It’s nothing short of miraculous. I wore it in torrential rain, while bird watching, with the throat latch. Was bone dry, and it was cool, having that Bond look. I got mine from country attire, last christmas for £300. A quick word about sizing, I initially ordered a large as most forums etc say size up. Buried me, so swapped it for a medium. Country Attire were very helpful. Medium was a great fit, though the arms were a tad long, so I sent it to Barbour who shortened them. If you take your jacket to a local tailor to be changed, then it voids the warranty. Barbour explained this to me over the phone.

    I have been following this page for a couple years now. I have two kids and one on the way so spending a lot on a jacket of this sort is not an option. I just purchased the London Fog and am very pleased. Certainly not the slim fit and certainly a bit boxy, but this is a great jacket. The point of the clothes that look Bond-esque are not for dress up/cosplay. Rather it is the feel of Bond. The confidence that you get when you know that the details are covered and you can focus on the big picture, whether at the grocery store or luring Silva to your childhood Scottish home. The London Fog gives that confidence. The great thing about the London Fog is that it’s waterproof still so you don’t miss out on the benefits of waxed cotton. It’s a mix of cotton and polyester. It is really warm. Plan for that. The color says brown but it’s a lot closer to olive than they let on. The orange interior suggests it’s meant for hunting. Appropriate for the alternative it is. I usually wear a large, I could probably pull off a medium but I stuck with large given the holidays are coming up and like I said, one kid on the way. Was great walking around a theme park yesterday in 45 degree (Fahrenheit) weather.

    I actually bought the London Fog coat last year for a Skyfall-esque look, and it’s not bad. The fit is better than shown on the model, particularly if you are wearing a sweater underneath it. Not sure why the Amazon listing says it comes with a vest, as it definitely does not.
