Barbour X To Ki To Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket
James Bond (Daniel Craig) wears a Barbour "X To Ki To" Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket in the movie SkyFall. The jacket can already be spotted on the cover photo of Bond on Set: Filming SkyFall and very briefly in the SkyFall trailer. Bond wears the jacket in Scotland, where it fits well in the environment, especially together with his Anderson Wheeler double rifle and Aston Martin DB5. Director Sam Mendes said that he wanted a 1960s feel in those scenes, and the Barbour jacket adds to this look.
The Barbour tailored sports jacket made from 6oz Sylkoil wax with the classic Barbour tarten lining. The jacket has a single welted chest pocket with two lower bellowed pockets, and two lower back poacher pockets. Other features include a removable articulated hood which Bond seems to have removed. This jacket is only available in Olive color, product code MWX0364OL71.
The jacket is part of the Beacon Heritage collection, a collaboration between Barbour and Japanese designer Tokihito Yoshida. The collection is inspired by Barbour’s sporting, motorcycling and military past and offers a range of jackets, knitwear and shirts.
The production of this jacket is limited and it has sold out fast everywhere. You can still try the official Barbour stores in London and around the world, but they seem to have all sold out of the jacket. There was talk about a new batch to become be available in December or January but this is not confirmed yet. Some online stores take pre-orders for this batch, for example the store EndClothing.co.uk (UK and Europe) and EndClothing.com (USA and world).
On eBay there are sometimes a few jackets on offer, usually for more than the original retail price. You can find many similar Barbour jackets, but the X To Ki To sports jacket seems to become very rare.
The official, original Barbour price of this jacket is £399 (approx. $630 or €500).

Bond's Scotland outfit
With the Barbour jacket, James Bond wears Crockett & Jones Islay boots, N.Peal blue wave cashmere sweater and All Saints Corduane Iggy pants. The scarf is probably from Tom Ford.
