I have a full pile Irvin and find it too bulky. I switched to a Spada waxed jacket with a removable lining so good across a wider temperature range. The waxed jacket is the same one on sale in the Morgan factory shop but purchased for a cheaper price elsewhere without the logo!! You just need to remove the shoulder, elbow and spine padding and off you go.

Yes, I have a Barbour jacket that I use in warmer weather, especially if there's a bit of rain about. Mine's only about 15 years old so I've not needed to reproof it yet, but it's a good argument in favour of black vinyl seats smile

We stopped wearing Barbours in cars when Mrs F got dark waxy grime lines on summer clothes from seatbelts.

Certainly do. I wear it a fair amount, not just when out in the Mog.

Yer tiz. Made by a local clothes designer, Emmie McNair. I wanted a medium thick tweed jacket that was sort of a cross between a normal tweed jacket and a shooting jacket, that wasn't too long, had good arm articulation, and would look smart enough to use as a conventional jacket for going out to restaurants and such in. Emmie listened to my requirements, we went through a load of pictures on t'internet, and this is what she came up with. Higher than normal collar with faux leather flap fastener, faux leather shoulder inserts like a shooting jacket, elbow patches sited to rest on the door tops, real working cuff buttons so the cuffs can be opened up, and a ticket pocket.

I like that you have an elbow patch suitable for elbow out when driving a lhd mpg too (just in case).

I found the Plus 4 heater to be very powerful - usually driving roof off but with sidescreens. I usually wear a Barbour, but sometimes a Marks & Spencer leather jacket with one of these over the top:

I wear one of these in all my Moggies during our rather cold winters here in the Rockies, works great under all types of clothing and is controllable:
