I have the grossa in Burgundy. It does have a brownish hint to it, but not too much. I also have the bitter chocolate, and next to each other, it is very clear which is brown, and which is burgundy.I am thinking about getting the "Dark Red" http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-grossa-solid-silk-ties/dark-red-grenadine-silk-tie-2.html Then again, I also have the navy grossa and want both the midnight and slate blue...
One of the funniest things I have read today.
I just got my first Barbour, (Beaufort) for Christmas, so I am by no means a Barbour expert. Before I got the jacket I tried on several sizes, I am usually a 42R in suits/sport coats. I tried on the 40, 42, and 44. I wanted to be able to wear the Beaufort over just a shirt, for fall, but also to layer over a sweater or sport coat in winter.I went with the 42, the 44 was simply too big, and the 40 was just right for wearing with a shirt, but wasnt really suited to wear...

Gents, I am mostly a lurker here, but I hope to attend. I have no black tie rig, but I will figure something out.
I am a bit larger than you, but I will give my advice based on my experience with Gustin denim.Overall the waist will stretch about 1 inch after break in. Most recommend you get raw denim to fit pretty snug when new, so that your jeans will fit "just right" after break in.So for you, it looks like you need to decide between Gustin 30's or 31's. The 30's should stretch out to about a 31.5 waist, and the 31's should stretch to about a 32.5...
