  That doesn't necessary mean the bags themselves aren't decades old. I'm assuming that most if not all of the original zippers on these are replaced during the course of restoration.
  I haven't tried them on side-by-side at the same time, but I've worn each of them and the Bedale SL definitely seems a bit slimmer than the Ashby.
  Just to be clear, not all Bedale SLs are 4oz. Some are the regular 6oz. weight: http://www.countryattire.com/shop-by-brand/barbour-heritage/barbour-heritage-men-s-sl-bedale-jacket-sage-mwx0734sg91.html
  Yeah, it sounds like the 28 wouldn't work for you. 29 should be perfect. As for the Petit New Standard, I wasn't able to fit into the PNS 28 because it tapered to much for me. In general, the whole "you need to size down" is generally overstated for raw denim. At this point, I'm more inclined to size down 1 rather than 2 for the slimmer/skinny fits. Some dude on this board sized down 4 awhile back, which is nuts.
 I'm about the same size as you. I'd go with 29 especially if you are bulking up. I went with a 28 for PS and though it fits, it's a bit too snug for my liking at this point.
 That's been my experience. The 28 PS fits me snugly but the 28 PNS was too tapered below the knee. Actually had a lot of difficulty removing it once I got it on.
 I'm partial to natural though they're both nice. It will naturally darken a bit if you add some conditioner to it.
 You definitely don't want to dry it. Couldn't you just say you had it rewaxed?
 Curiously the URL for this says "Commander" though the jacket is listed as Beacon: http://www.endclothing.com/barbour-skyfall-commander-jacket.html
 Need Supply still has it: http://needsupply.com/mens/transit-issue-field-jacket.html 20% off with code FWB20.
